2004 Dodge Ram Pickup 1500 2dr Regular Cab SLT 4WD SB (4.7L 8cyl 5M)


Review

Absolutely fell in love with this
truck after test driving it. The 5.7L
HEMI engine meets and exceeds all of
the hype created by the dodge
commercials. I was actually in the
market for the 4.7L engine, which has
more than ample power, but after
comparing it to the HEMI found that
there was no comparison. What is
interesting is that the HEMI produces
over 100 more horse power but only
loses ~1mpg in fuel efficiency.
Besides the engine, another thing that
really impresses me about the Ram is
the way it handles. I was very
surprised at the way such a big truck
can move and handle. Overall,
everything about this truck has thus
far exceeded my expectations


Best Features

My favorite feature of this truck has got to be the 4wd. After a stressful day at work its always relaxing to go and do a few doughnuts in a mud pit. The HEMI provides more than enough power and torque to get those tires turning.


Worst Features

I hear a lot of complaints about fuel efficiency but I expected this from a truck. It does suck paying upwards of $50 per tank of gas. I've also heard a lot of complaints about the interior not being refined enough, but I like the interior. It's a real man's interior and the ladies l

Review

The 2004 Dodge Ram 1500 SLT 4wd is
simply the best truck on the market in
my opinion. I chose to get the HEMI
engine because it simply outperforms
the competition. Ford, GMC, and Chevy
cannot keep up with my Dodge. I test
drove all 4 U.S. Mfg. trucks, and it
came down to the Dodge Ram and Ford F-
150. The Ram's HEMI engine simply
outperformed the F-150's 5.4L Triton
engine. I also liked the Rams
exterior appearance much better than
the F-150's. The only thing that kept
Ford in the running was it's interior
features. But in the end, the Ram's
features outshined the competition.
This is one great truck!


Best Features

There are too many to list. The 4wd is great. The 5.7L HEMI engine is another favorite. But my favorite feature is the Ram's great looks. It gets a lot of envious looks out there on the road.


Worst Features

Some minor improvements to the interior styling could be made, eventhough I thing it looks and performs well enough for me.

2004 Dodge Ram Pickup 1500 2dr Regular Cab SLT 4WD SB (4.7L 8cyl 5M)


Review

The Ram1500 4wd is the the best truck
i've ever owned. Been a GMC man most
of my life but switched over after
driving my cousins 2003 Ram 1500.
This truck not only looks better than
the competition, it outperforms them
too. I went with the 5.7 liter HEMI
engine, which simply blows the
competition away. This truck is just
fun to drive. Like to take it off the
road occasionally also. Performs well
there too.


Best Features

I love the look of this truck. It just looks plain mean compared to the competition. Also, the 345 horse power HEMI engine is another favorite.


Worst Features

The gas milage is one area that can be improved, but bad gas milage was expected with a truck (esoecially one with a 5.7 liter engine). Interior design can also be improved (wife's suggestion).

Review

This Ram 4WD is one fun piece of
machinery. I've got the off-road
group with the HEMI and the thing has
exceeded my expectations with its off-
road performance. Its been able to
keep up with a friend's Jeep Cherokee
(with a 3" lift and some fat tires) in
some muddy spots. It performs well on
the road as well. Love feeling that
345 horse power under my right foot.
My only complaint is that the thing
loves the gas as just as much as I
love the beer. But I guess I knew
that before I bought the thing. Still
a great buy and I'd recommend it to
anyone who wants a bad-ass truck.


Best Features

Gotta love the HEMI. Also love the 4WD. I'd never buy a truck w/o 4WD.


Worst Features

Improve fuel economy.
