    Underpowered base V6, Quad Cab lacks rear-seat room when compared to GM full-size trucks.

Definitely a decent truck

Vehicle: 2001 Dodge Ram Pickup 1500 2dr Regular Cab ST 2WD SB (3.9L 6cyl 5M)

I had my 01 RAM passed down to me a few years ago when my grandfather had gotten the new 2010 F150. It was a great truck and has been through a lot over the years. However it also had over $2000 of work done to it to keep it running. Rebuilt transmission, replaced rotors, brakes, tires, all kinds of pumps and wire, plus all kinds of stuff I can't even remember. But nothing you wouldn't expect from a Dodge truck, especially at 10 years old. All-in-all, it was a good truck, and really sturdy. The V6 Magnum wasn't too powerful, but it lasted the life of the truck and still pushes to this day, at 140,000 miles. If only the fuel economy didn't suck.

116,000 miles. Great truck. Work, hunting, fishing. Etc. Great interior, lots of room. Dash problems? No. The 5.2 lacks some power on highway (5 spd manual) lot of shifting especially in hills (mountains). Overall great truck, plan on owning another (diesel)




I love this truck

Vehicle: 2001 Dodge Ram Pickup 1500 2dr Regular Cab ST 4WD SB (5.2L 8cyl 5M)

I bought mine used 3 years ago with 70k, now she has 90k. I've had to replace the power steering pump and rear bumper -- rust is an issue with these trucks. Other than that, she starts up and runs like a charm. I have a 7.5' Western plow and she plows like a champ.




Fun to drive

Vehicle: 2001 Dodge Ram Pickup 1500 2dr Regular Cab WS 2WD LB (3.9L 6cyl 5M)

This little truck with its 318 is fun.Can roast the tires anytime I feel like it. I don't have a hitch yet, so I don't know the mpg on towing or its performance.No problem getting up to hwy speed, great response. It's the first truck that I've had since an old chevy that brings a smile to my face.It also performs well in minor off road situations(it is only a 2wd), don't get too deep in the mud.Interior comfy,love the floorboards(easy to clean),good sound system and an overall good running truck.I bought it used about a year and a half ago with 140k on it,only had to replace a water pump.

01 ram 1500 off road

Vehicle: 2001 Dodge Ram Pickup 1500 2dr Regular Cab ST 4WD SB (5.2L 8cyl 5M)

Bought this new great truck plenty of power. I plow snow haul heavy trailers, use it off road etc. Expect a very choppy ride for a straight axle SB/4WD. Put 600-800 lbs in the back and it rides far better, everything is a compromise. Few expensive repairs, I maintain myself, did a W/P at 65K Brakes at 60K front axle seals. Never a transmission problem, maybe because I service it.
