Roomy

Vehicle: 2002 Dodge Ram Pickup 1500 4dr Quad Cab ST 4WD LB (4.7L 8cyl 5M)

It seems to have the most room in the front for 2. I liked the dash/ stereo area compared to others. I wish 02' had lumbar support and the back doors could be a little bigger. Overall I still think it is the best looking truck on the road.

My truck has been used to tow boats and cars to Florida and no matter the size the truck pulls it like it is empty




Great truck!

I bought this truck for pleasure but to work when it had to. So far it has exceeded my expectations on every level. I was always a Ford man but this new Dodge has me looking to other directions. Dodge has really outdone theirselves!




Nice truck, but

The truck is great I love it. The only thing wrong is I get A LOT of WIND SOUND on the drivers door. I took it in to Carmax in Los ANgeles and they tell me nothing is wrong. I will try back with Frahm but if they dont fix it I will be trying a Ford in two years.




Rusty parts

I found rust on my vehicle after it was delivered to the lot. Apparently this Truck was sitting on a lot somewhere. The rear bumper was covered in rust on the underside. I did a little research and found out there was an undercoat issue from the supplier for the bumper. They were improperly undercoating the bumper, and the chrome ones are likely to rust. Likewise, the same individual informed me of problems with seals around the cab of the truck. Water was getting in on the early production of the 2002 models. Take a good look at your bumper, cause if it looked like mine, get them to put a new one on! Also I found various paint flaws on the vehicle.
