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

Review

Love the truck. It has some nagging
flaws. Had Aamco do 30k mi. trans
service (4-spd auto), and brass filings
were in the pan. The manager said it
was the second worst tranny on the
road. Had to replace both towing
mirrors by 28k miles. Have 46k now and
new ones good so far. Love the
roominess, but at 6'5" I need more
headroom. Don't like the flexing noise
in the quad cab doors on bumpy roads.
Has lots of power, but not as much as a
360 should have. Chevy 350 seems
stronger. Tows 100 hay bales on BP
trailer with brake controller fine. BC
should be standard with tow package. I
like the solid front axle instead of
independent suspension.

Best Features

Size, bed length (longer than 2003 LB's), towing strength, easy to change oil, quad cab space, underhood roominess, cup holders, 4-wheel drive

Worst Features

better trans, longer lasting tow mirrors that don't have to be adjusted when used for towing, cruise control that doesn't downshift when unnecessary on level road, more mpg, stronger engine (5.9L), stronger springs/more clearance so it doesn't bottom out on 4" drop @ 5 mph
