Default Not jumpin off the ranger bandwagon, but....

First off, I love my ranger, it's all I expected it to be and more and i wouldnt trade it for anything. That being said, I've been driving around my late grandfathers 2005 Dodge Durango while I've been (slowly) working on the brakes on my ranger (when I'm not at work or football) I LOVE this thing. It's got a ton of power, power everything, leather/pleather everything, and i think it's easier to drive than my ranger. It also gets about the same mileage as my truck, and is just as, if not more, comfortable than my truck. There are some cons to go with the pros, like the dam burnout-killing traction control, the permanent AWD, and the lack of a bed,but overall I'm incredibly impressed. Just thought I'd let y'all know. Haha

Or the transmission takes a dump. lol.

The old Dodges were good, the new ones suck. I've got a 1990 Ram 50 that you couldn't kill if you wanted too.

It's already got rust bubbles on the drivers side rear fender. And it's been well taken care of.

2003 Dodge Durango. Second owner..no rust, anywhere. Engine in good condition with just regular oil changes.


They are a nice vehicle. The back seats could use some more room though, for us big people!

I'm a firm believer that it's not the manufacturer of a vehicle but who owns and maintains it that makes it what it is.... Except went it comes to any dodge Chrysler jeep made in the last 15 years. It's too bad cause they make mean looking trucks

Well I guess we can be one to prove you wrong lol. Its been hand washed, maybe, MAYBE 5 times total? And we live in Canada, so salty winters are a must..and there is no rust.
