Full coverage or liability only
The chart below visualizes the comparison of Dodge Ram 2500 car insurance rates with full coverage compared to only the Arizona minimum liability coverage. Data assumes a clean driving record, no claims, $500 deductibles, drivers are not married, and no discounts are applied to the premium.
Are you wasting money paying for full coverage?
There isn’t a written rule to delete full coverage on your policy, but there is a broad guideline. If the annual cost of having full coverage is more than 10% of the replacement cost minus the deductible, the it may be a good time to stop paying for full coverage.
For example, let’s pretend your Dodge Ram 2500 replacement value is $3,000 and you have $1,000 policy deductibles. If your vehicle is destroyed, the most your company would pay you is $2,000 after the policy deductible has been paid. If you are paying over $200 a year to have full coverage, then you might want to think about dropping full coverage.
There are some conditions where buying only liability insurance is not financially feasible. If you still owe money on your vehicle, you have to keep full coverage in order to prevent the bank from purchasing higher-priced coverage. Also, if you cannot afford to purchase a different vehicle if your current one is totaled, you should maintain full coverage.

Why you need insurance for your Dodge vehicle
Even though it can be expensive, insuring your vehicle may be required for several reasons.
First, just about all states have mandatory insurance requirements which means you are required to buy a specific minimum amount of liability coverage if you want to drive legally. In Arizona these limits are 15/30/10 which means you must have $15,000 of bodily injury coverage per person, $30,000 of bodily injury coverage per accident, and $10,000 of property damage coverage.
Second, if your Ram 2500 has a loan, almost all lenders will have a requirement that you have insurance to guarantee their interest in the vehicle. If you let the policy lapse, the lender will be forced to insure your Dodge at a much higher premium rate and force you to pay for it.
Third, insurance safeguards both your vehicle and your personal assets. It will also pay for medical bills for both you and anyone you injure as the result of an accident. Liability coverage also covers all legal expenses up to the policy limit in the event you are sued. If you have damage to your Dodge as the result of the weather or an accident, collision and comprehensive coverages will pay to have it repaired.
The benefits of having car insurance definitely exceed the price paid, particularly if you ever have a claim. Despite what companies tell you, the average driver overpays more than $865 each year so you should quote rates at every policy renewal to save money.

- What companies can they write with?
- Will they take your side in the event of a claim?
- Which members of your family are coverage by the policy?
- What is the agency’s Better Business Bureau rating?
- Do they get extra compensation for selling add-on coverages?
