I purchased this 2006 Dodge Ram 1500 4X4 Big Horn Edition Quad Cab to replace my 2003 Dodge Dakota Club Cab. I needed the room since I'm 6'4" and 220lbs and I need to put a carseat in it for my son. I love the fact that I don't have to bend down or over to put my son in his chair. My back thanks MOPAR for the truck's ride height. I have the MDS Hemi I average about 22-23 MPG. I put an AEM Brute force intake on it and a Flowmaster Super 40 series muffler on it. Needless to say its the biggest, baddest truck on the block. My son loves it just as much as I do. I feel safe in it no matter what the weather does. I prefer to take it when we go camping or on any long road trip. I love this truck.
Hemi MDS, 4X4, Quad cab, Sirius sattelite radio, lots of room and style. I dig the price too with the Big Horn Edition you get more for less somehow, I aint knockin' it. It was thousands less than other trucks I looked at. It's a really good looking truck. Fully boxed frame is nice too.
Need a solid front axle! The IFS is really good in this truck, but please MOPAR give me a solid front axle! I don't really care for the electronic shift on the fly either. Ditch the Goodforayears, mine wore out in less than 2 years! Had to buy some Cooper Zeon LTZ's, big improvement.
I love my Dodge Ram 1500. It is a really great truck. I bought mine with the Hemi and it's pretty impressive. I put a K&N air filter and a louder muffler on it and it sounds amazing. My only regret is the quad cab is small. I love the patriotic blue metallic paint, and hemi decals.
5.7 liter beast and the quick shifting tranny
The compartment lights need to stay on longer than 5 seconds.
purchased the truck for a family/ recreation vehicle. After 1 engine rebuild and 2 transmission. And many other electrical problems(brake lights sticking on). Gas mileage was horrible. I averaged 11-13 in town or highway didn't matter. Had the 5.7 hemi and was not impressed.
This is the first truck I've bought, and although my family farm has always had Dodge's, this one is easily my favorite. We have a 2500 Cummins and my brother in law has a 3500 cummins, and we've had nothing but good reliability and fantastic performance with them. My 1500 fits right in, and with its powerful 5.7 L Hemi can tow really whatever I need it to. I commute to college with it, and although it's fun to drive and looks great, it's not a commuter vehicle. Mileage is around 17 mpg total, not bad, but I hardly touch the pedal. Interior is fresh, clean, nicely done IMO, unlike Ford's whose interior is boring. Overall a great truck, if you need it! Otherwise, a great toy....
Hemi, Red color, satellite radio, 20" tires (not replacing the stock Goodyear though) Hemi. Did I mention Hemi? I want to make that clear, the Hemi is fantastic.
p.s. the 2009 Hemi, 380 hp, 405 ft-lb torque...
It's a Hemi so the fuel mileage is awful, but oh well..beef up the sound system a little. more aggressive exhaust. nothing that any aftermarket mods can't fix, overall fantastic
