Ram 1500 4x4 loaded SLT 4.7L, 4-speed
auto. 3.90:1 limited slip differential.
The new brakes, frame, suspension are
very good. No rattles, squeeks, etc.
The trucks rides and handles very good,
you might think your in a car.
The truck has towed my #6,000
car/trailer with out any problems,but
the transmission dosen't like being in
over-drive when towing a heavy load.
The body, suspension, brakes, stiff
frame, and all the storage under the
rear seats, center console/seat, flat
The 4.7L only gets about 14 MPG and
could use more power for a big truck
like this. For a 4-door truck, the cab
is smaller than the big Ford.
The 2002 rams interior was nicer than
the 2003, i owned both. Dodge cheaped
out on the 2003. Seems to be more
plastic. More plastic on doors, no
overhead sunglasses holder, trim on
bottom of doors is gone, no tinted
window on 2003. Wish i would have
stayed with the 2002. Anybody that
says the 4.7L is a better choice than
the 5.9L, never had one.
Exterior styling, interior comfort,
fun to drive.
Fuel economy is terrible, not so much
plastic on interior.
i love this truck, it has power, it
sounds great with the new dual three
chamber flow masters. but, the gas
mileage could be improved greatly.
but, what i hate the most, is the wind
sound coming from the drivers side door.
my favorite features are, the rugged
looks, power,lush interior.
BETTER GAS MILEAGE, GET RID OF THE WIND
NOISE FROM THE DRIVERS SIDE DOOR
