Hemi is worth it...

2005 Dodge Ram Pickup 1500 4dr Quad Cab SLT 4WD SB (4.7L 8cyl 6M)

Review

I know the options only give you the 4.7 to review/rate so I'm writing this review here. Finally took a while for me to find the "right" combination of options and color scheme but when I did it was worth it. Hemi is second to none, just wish the bolt-on horsepower options (Air intake system, etc.) weren't so much more for the Hemi as compared to other engines. As of now it presents more than enough power. Envy factor has already made a close friend buy one only two months after I got mine.

Favorite Features

Engine...Ride is OK, 20" wheels stand out, as for value I did months of research, Ford and Chevy/GMC can't compare. I'm sure the Tundra will outlast my Ram 1500, but they'll have to come borrow my truck if they want to tow/haul anything with the pahtetic 4.7 Toyota offers. Great seats as well.

Suggested Improvements

Trim areas look and are kind of "cheap". Gas milage is sub- standard, but then again you don't buy a Hemi to be a gas saver...
