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


Review

Purchased the Ram Quad Cab SLT with the
Hemi 5.7 engine, because of reviews I
read on the internet. I wasn't
disappointed. I pull a 27ft camper
trailer that weighs about 7200lbs. The
Hemi pulls it with ease and the truck
itself feels much more stable pulling
than my 2002 ext cab Silverado did. The
Hemi is very thirsty, especially when
pulling. I averaged about 7.5 mpg while
towing.


Best Features

Exterior design. The look is bold like a truck should be. The Hemi engine. Rear cab room.


Worst Features

Automatic headlights. Standard side air bags.

Review

I will not say that Chevy and Ford
trucks stink because they don't.I am
honest in saying I owned a Tahoe and
hated it.
I am on my third Ram. I had a 96 single
cab that was an underpowered V6. I did
love it though. I owned a 99 5.2L quad
cab with a manual transmission. I
enjoyed that truck, but I had almost
130000 miles on it. It was time to get
a new one. I bought a 2004 Black Quad
Cab Sport Edition Hemi 1500.
To say it is my favorite of the trucks
is an understatement. It has so much
base power, over 100 more horses than
my last Ram. I will drive this for
200,000 miles. It is smooth as glass
with the power of a sports car, and it
hauls serious weight.


Best Features

I am 6'4 and weigh 280 pounds and am more comfortable in this truck than any other. I have a ton of leg room. I love the Hemi engine. It is so powerful. I thought about the Cummins, but was worried about the price. The Hemi does everything I need it to and more.


Worst Features

A little more leg room in the back seats. There really is nothing else I need. Wishful thinking would be a 25 mpg! But let's be realistic! The 18 HWY isn't bad for all that power you get.

Review

We almost bought the Nissan Titan but
got a much better deal on the Dodge
(our has the Hemi, but Edmunds for some
reason doesn't list that engine as a
choice..???). We got the sport
appearance package instead of the
chrome, looks much better and alot more
menacing. The 20" wheel option looks
cool, but it can turn the ride a bit
jiggly, so try before you buy. It's my
wife's daily driver, but when she's not
looking I sneak it out whenever I get
the chance ;-)


Best Features

The Hemi power, really tremendous value for the money - even with the SLT pkg and Hemi engine, ours was still cheaper than an equivalent Silverado, Titan or Tundra.


Worst Features

That Hemi does have an appetite - we consistenly average aroun 14 MPG even in straight highway driving. The back seat is a bit tight for such a large truck. And how about lighting the cruise control buttons at night?

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

I bought this truck for work. Owning
a Honda Civic previous to this. Of
course the gas mileage is an issue,
but there is no complaint about the
power or the ride. The HEMI is
awesome, more than enough power for
anyhing I want to do. The looks are
great, interior is quiet. I will
never go back to owing a car again.


Best Features

HEMI engine, roomy interior, audio system, 20 in wheels. Lots of storage, comfortable seating for 6.


Worst Features

A spray in liner from the factory.
