2004 Dodge Ram Pickup 1500 Quad Cab 4dr Quad Cab Laramie Rwd SB (4.7L 8cyl 5A)


Review

Very reliable truck. Have had to do only normal maintenance. If you want horsepower and looks this is the truck. If you want a girls truck I would try the F-150. I've had some people try their luck against the Hemi and all they have seen is my bumper as I pull away. What a great feeling. Will always have a Ram.


Best Features

Hemi and the strong looks.


Worst Features

None.

Review

Great truck, fun to drive, handles very well for a big truck. Brakes are great, engine preformace is unbelievable for such a large vehicle. In the last three years of ownership the only problem I have had was a leaking left front shock. That was replaced under warranty. On the hiway traveling at 120 KH the truck scoots along. But still gets about 24 mpg.


Best Features

5.7 hemi, 5 speed trans, 4 wheel disc brake with ABS. Heated front seats leather seats stereo radio with CD and cassette along with 8 speakers. Adjustable gas and brake pedals. And it's just a great looking truck.


Worst Features

Arm rests with grab handle on a 15 to a 30 degree angle. Also the floor pan on the right front floor. Remove the stupid bump on floor, it takes up too much foot room. Very uncomfortable on long trips.

Review

Very nice interior storage, especailly under middle seat in front, and under rear seats. Excellent turning and handling, but ride is much rougher than the 1996 Chevy CK1500 I drove for 115K miles. Delivered with non functioning horn that drained the battery and required a tow at 300 miles. Dashboard GPS is basically worthless and non intuitive, you'd be much better off buying the Garmin portable GPS unit. Heated seats work great.


Best Features

Interior room, fit and finish, storage, radio/cd player/sound system, steering wheel controls for radio. Hemi provides tremendous acceleration and engine performance - stalled alot until I had 1000 miles on it.


Worst Features

Smooth out the ride. Make running board standard for shorter passengers to get in more easily.

Review

I drove my '98 Ram Quad Cab more than 200K in the 5 years I had it. So naturally I looked to Dodge for a replacement. I found an '04 Silver Quad Cab Laramie 4X2 Hemi that had my name on it, and drove it home. That was a year and 15K miles ago. this truck drives better than most cars I've had. Sure it's huge and loves to visit gas stations, but I've surprised many a driver of high priced exotics as well as domestic muscle cars with the way the Ram handles the windy roads of SF coast. This truck feels as stable and composed at 90 as it does at 40, and with the Hemi getting to 90 is a very short wait.


Best Features

In dash CD changer is a nice feature as are the heated leather/suede seats. Love the white faced instrument panel and the dual climate control.


Worst Features

Steeringis a tad on the light side, even with the 20" tires/wheels. Transmission logic needs to be set more towards performance than economy. Always goes straight for OD, even if climbing a hill which creates a constant hunt for the right gear.

Review

Edmunds needs to add the Hemi motor as Part of your selection, you always rate the 4.7. There is no comparison. My truck has ran great, no problems. I read reviews that it sits to high. please It's a truck. It's my opinion The best looking truck on the road!!


Best Features

The Hemi!! The Look of the truck.


Worst Features

More MOPAR Go Fast Parts for the Hemi.
