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


Review

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.


Favorite Features

.The cab room .Good mirror view .Tough truck


Suggested Improvements

.Transmission wasn't too good. .The fuel economy, no matter how much it says on the website, or on the manual, the most I ever squeezed out of the truck was 15 to the gallon.

Review

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)


Favorite Features

looks good, 4wd works great snow or mud


Suggested Improvements

interior lights (dome)

Review

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.


Favorite Features

size and comfort. plus, there's storage behind the seat - a good foot's worth at floor level.


Suggested Improvements

Rust is an issue. I don't have any on my doors, but it seems most RAM's rust out at the bottom of the doors. My bumper rusted out from the inside and looked like Swiss cheese in a matter of weeks.

Review

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.


Favorite Features

Comfort,ease of driving,power, and looks.


Suggested Improvements

Dashboard,dashboard,dashboard,oh why do these dashboards crack?
