Lone Star edition of the Dodge Ram Crew
Cab is great. Fun to drive and makes
you feel like the king of the road!
Disappointment is gas mileage - only 11
to 12 in town and about 15.5 at 75mph
and about 17 if you only drive no
faster than 65mph. I traded in a 2001
Chevy Silverado Quad Cab 1500 for this
and have not been disappointed, except
for gas mileage.
20 inch wheels really set off what is
already a great looking truck. The four
full doors with rear windows that roll
all the way down is really a plus.
Posi-traction and 4 wheel disc brakes
also a plus on Lone Star Edition.
I used to be a Chevrolet nut. Would'nt
have anything else. I took one test
drive and I was stuck on my Dodge 1500
SLT. As long as they keep making them
like this, I'll keep buying them. It
not only performs well, it looks good.
I feel like I got the best deal
Vehicle is great. There does appear to
be some frequency on two specific
cement highways in California's San
Francisco Bay Area where a natural mode
is hit and the vehicle vibration is
quite intense. Other than that, the
power, handling, and styling is great!
Styling, flexbile seating
configurations, and especially the fold-
down flat platform in the backseat.
Stereo system is great. Rear door is
great size and opens nice and wide.
Improve natural frequency response on
CA highways. Doors swing back closed
too easily when you are opening them.
Drove them all & none mathed what the
Dodge had to offer. Had to wait a few
months for the dealers to deal, but it
was worth it. The 4.7 with the auto
will be fine for most people &
situations. Would like a little more
highway grunt, but good off the line.
The exhaust not is perfect, especially
up hill at 2800 rpm. Don't listen to
the ones with nothing good to say & how
cheap everything is. They have a
problem. The quality is great. 11
months, 13,000 miles, no problems, no
regrets. Don't get the 5.7, not worth
it, just worse gas milage. Wait for the
The exterior is the best of them all.
The center arm rest & cup holders are
great. Drives better than my Father-in-
laws Cadillac. Someone was thinking.
Finally, oil does not run down your
arm, over the starter, & onto the
exhaust system when you remove the oil
Dodge, I hope you read these. Like
everyone else says, gas mileage needs
improvement. Avg 14.2 mostly city with
13,000 miles so far. Base stereo could
be improved, but $700 for the upgrade
seemed pricey. $715 for shipping, OUCH.
