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


For the first 15 years in this business I wouldn't even consider anything but a Chevy. But for the past few years GM keeps raising prices and dropping quality. So I bought a RAM on a whim. Excellent truck. The only problem I had was tranny blew at 15,000 miles. Dodge replaced it and now I have 62,000 miles with no problems at all. I added an aux trans cooler for insurance. But this new trans has almost 50,000 miles pulling loads from 1,000 - 5,000 lbs everyday. Many times in 4WD. This truck is everybit as dependable as any Chevy I ever had. But it cost a lot less.

Best Features

Ground clearance...this baby sits up high. Exterior looks...Isn't it funny how Chevy and Ford are chasing their tails to catch up.

Worst Features

Gas mileage is a little weak but then it's a fullsize 4WD truck. If you buy one and use it like I do make sure you get a 3.90 or 4.10 differential. This 3.55 doesn't really do much justice to this truck.
