Review

I fell in love with the sound and look of this truck. That's the only good thing about this truck. It's had a new transmission ,which still does not shift right. Replaced the power steering pump, it just cut off the other day going down the road. The heated seats no longer work. The truck will just crank up sitting in the yard with no key or anybody in it. The dealer told me to call ghost busters. I would of thought it would of pulled better than this. My dad's F-150, with a 4.6L, will out pull and out run this. I have a K&N air filter and still get about 10 to 11mpg hwy. If you put an empty trailer behind it it drops to about 8mpg. The truck's interior is real comfy. I will never buy a Dodge again.


Best Features

Looks tough and sounds tougher. Nice interior.

Review

I love the truck, in spite of the fact that 15mpg isn't obtainable if you drive 75% on Interstates. 18mpg on sticker (5.9L) is possibly a simple lie. I took delivery after the dealer did a "safety inspection" and found all 4 ball joints had deteriorated leaving the joints open to sand and dirt incursion. In addition, all four tires were abraded near the inside bead due to the 245/85R16 tires being too large for the truck ($800+). The ball joints need a recall and replacement with joints that can be lubricated (figure on $900+). I have a bad back but the truck is a great ride! The front seat is comfortable althought I will probably replace the bench with buckets.


Best Features

Great ride and power. Easy to ingress/egress with bad back (seat is perfect height with proper tires). Noise is good for a work truck. Four doors makes cab totally accessable and provides 100% usability.


Worst Features

Get rid of sealed ball joints, they don't work. Change the cup holder setup, it wastes too much space. Gas economy is real bad, 14.5mpg with 75% of driving on Interstate; install two speed splitter (like Gear Vendor box) with high-ratio highway gearing.

2001 Dodge Ram Pickup 1500 4dr Quad Cab ST 2WD LB (5.2L 8cyl 5M)


Review

Outstanding drivetrain, comfortable ride. It is used for work truck. Found after purchase, the boots on the "lifetime" front upper and lower bearings were all cracked and the tires were rubbing the steering because they were oversized.


Best Features

Power train, reliability, and comfort of ride.


Worst Features

Dodge needs to recall all with sealed front bearings and replace them with bearings with lube fittings. In either case, they are the most poorly designed item on the truck!! Also, they need to redesign the front end steering to allow larger tire sizes.

Review

I bought this used and from day one put it to work and has done everthing I've wanted it to do from loads to pulling. The suspension is great. I can load the bed and does not sag. The harder I work it the more it wants. A couple of things though. I only get about 10-12 mph maybe 14 tops. I notice there is a delay or no resposne when most times when gas is pushed (at a cruise speed)until you get down on it little. Tried everything to correct this don't know if design or a problem. Overall very satisfied.


Best Features

Runs better as you work it harder.


Worst Features

Gas mpg and accelerator response.
