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
