I like the power of the Hemi for towing. The headlights are the brightest I've had on a vehicle, navigation radio, DVD player for the 22 hour rides to the campground, the truck is a head turner. Visibility is good for the most part.

My dislikes are the interior is cheap-one arm rest has a small split and the cup holder rubber material is impossible to clean, the seats are NOT comfortable for long rides, the quality of the vehicle seems like it was rushed. The A/C on the Mega Cab is poor at best for rear passengers. Had to add fender flares that should have been standard-along with wheel well liners. Lumbar adjustment is cheap-should have been power, not manual. There should have been on option with the woodgrain for Laramie package-it's so fake. The bumpers should have more substance to them so they can't be dented easily.

I like the HEMI power, that it came stock with 3.92s and 20's.

I dont like that it dosent have auto a/c and heat, auto headlights, numbers on the oil, temp and volt meters, dont like how easy the seats stain, stock it didnt come with a auto dim rear view..i mean come on most of the fords and some of the chevys come with all the "creature comforts" that i was looking for.

My buddy has 2500 with a "Regency" aftermarket up grade and it really is the total package....wery tough on the outside and plush as heck inside...huge leather heated seats and the whole nine....it is truly what Dodge should offer off the lot imo..

You about nailed it for me.
Additionally:
I like the optional towing mirrors. Nice work Dodge.
The factory trailer wiring harness AND topper electric stop light harness!
The leather wrapped steering wheel is excellent too (optional on my truck)
I got the hands free bluetooth cell connection and luv that a lot too.
The white gauges get a lot of positive comments.
The delay off headlight feature is nice as I walk into the house.
The paint is very good.
The Hemi badge does get respect.
I actually even like the new taillights.
And I really like the Yes Essentials fabric on the seats.

I have not found a dislike for me.

In your dislikes you mention the auto windows. I think the auto-up feature was nixed because Dodge figured the public would cut their heads off in the window. The public cant hurt themselves going auto-down.

I like pretty much every thing, with the exception of the paint. That stuff scratches so easily, you almost don't even want to touch it. Love the colors available, but the durability is highly questionable.

I don't think I could do a love/hate list for my truck. I'm not big on the squeaky rear sliding window, my dash squeaks a bit too, but I figure those are things a truck just does. Overall, I am very happy with my truck. Granted, it is far from stock now, but my truck has yet to disappoint me. My only gripe is that I bought my dodge a year too soon, otherwise I would have had a Power Wagon instead of the truck I have now.

Biggest gripe I have is the paint. OMG !! what kind of cheap paint is this ? Chips if a pebble the size of a grain of rice hits it, scratches if I almost stare at it too hard. Otherwise I love it, But the paint really has me agitated.

I truly love this truck and the only complains I have will be corrected with my next truck. I do hope it’s a Dodge truck but I will look off the reservation for my next truck.

Lack of torque and HP from the engine.
The cheap plastic inside the truck.
The 3.55 R&P ratio with the piece of junk LSD
The junky IFS with no travel.
The junk Dodge paint job that fades and flanks off in less than five years.

I can correct the 3.55 R&P, the LSD, and the paint. I can even replace the cheap plastic but the lack of torque/HP and the junk front-end is a little too costly for a truck that’s almost six years old. I believe I’ll hold on to the truck until the release of the 2009 model or the half-ton diesel. I’ll make up my mind after that time.

I like just about everything about my truck, it has 47000 miles on it and its tight as a drum, the one thing I don't like is when its in 4-wheel drive, when I turn the truck, if I turn to hard the truck pushes, say I turn to the left, it will push me straight, like the front locks up or something, it has been that way since day one, I don't use the 4-wheel drive much mostly in bad snow, this is the first 4x4 I have owned so mabey thats how they are, I do love the hemi, I just wish the plugs were easier to get to, I am die hard dodge, since I was in the service I have owned 2 dakotas and now my 1/2 ton 4x4, by the way I got my first dakota over 20 years ago, not bad huh!!! :D

That's the way 4x4 works, front and rear wheels turn at the same speed. There's no differential between front and rear axles, so you will be pushed straight when turning. Do it enough on dry pavement and you can damage parts. 4x4 is only for low-traction and off-road use.

Yeah, the Hemi kicks ass.

I love everything except:

Prices of 20" Tires (I don't think I need new ones for a while (knock on wood))
Gas mileage (but what can you expect).
The dings/dents from inconsiderate people.
