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

Review

I traded a Ford F-150 for this truck. Mechanically, I have no issues with this truck. Comfort is another issue. Ride quality is extremely stiif. I know this is a truck, but the Ford is far more forgiving. Wind noise from the ill- fitting doors is unreal. I can slip my fingers in the gap between the windshield and the door. Evan after adding additional rubber to the gap the noise is still annoying. Fuel mileage is poor as well. Maybe it's just me, but 12.5 on the small V-8 could be improved.

Favorite Features

Favorite attribute is the engine rumble. It lets you know you're in a truck

Suggested Improvements

Redesign the way the front doors fit around the windshield. Also, let the power windows work after the engine is turned off. The odometer still stays lit up after turning off the key. WHY???
