Vehicle

2004 Dodge Ram Pickup 1500 2dr Regular Cab SLT Rwd LB (4.7L 8cyl 5M)

Review

Strong truck (have carried literally a ton of material when doing a major home renovation), 4.7 V8 is plenty powerful for me. Towed the biggest trailer U-Haul has with ease. Handles and brakes surprisingly well, especially given size - it's even nimble. For example, somebody cut me off hard on the interstate one day and I was able to brake/swerve to avoid an accident with little difficulty. Very pleased with the vehicle. Very drivable vehicle.

Favorite Features

Power, braking, pulling (I have the two package). Sound system is excellent (Infinity). Extra shelf and space behind the seat is wonderful.

Suggested Improvements

Work on the mileage a bit - with the little 8, maybe 20 mpg with no load wouldn't be too much to ask? Also, would LOVE to see a deadpedal - I miss this from my Toyota.
