2008 Dodge Ram Pickup 1500 Quad Cab Laramie 4dr Quad Cab 4WD SB (5.7L 8cyl 5A)


Review

Great truck! Turns surprisingly well for a large pickup. Plenty of power when towing my camper (5000 lbs) or when the bed is loaded. 4wd gripping is great. Went up an unpaved, icy, 300 foot driveway at about a 25% to 30% grade without slipping at all.


Best Features

Power. Remote start. Cornering stability. Chrome package.


Worst Features

Stereo controls on steering wheel. Mudflaps standard. Better fuel mileage (although it's tough with an engine of this size)

2008 Dodge Ram Pickup 1500 Quad Cab Laramie 4dr Quad Cab 4WD SB (5.7L 8cyl 5A)


Review

After owning a 2000 Ram and now a 2008 Ram Quad Cab, I wouldn't own any other truck. I've never had any significant problems with the Ram. It's very dependable and tough. The quad cab is very comfortable for adults in the front and the back seat. The 5.7 Hemi is an awesome motor. It has plenty of power and the exhaust has a nice rumble to it. The Ram looks intimidating on the road with its huge chrome grille and 20 inch wheels. The ride is smooth for a truck and feels very solid. The anti spin rear differential provides great traction. I am very happy with my new Ram.


Best Features

Hemi engine, chrome 20 inch wheels, keyless entry, Sirius radio, two tone paint, bedliner, lifetime power train warranty.


Worst Features

The only area I can suggest improving is using a little less plastic in the interior. It doesn't quite measure up with the quality of the rest of the truck but overall, it's still not bad.

Review

This was my full-size truck purchase. The overall appearance of the Ram and its power clinched the deal for me. After test driving all the competition, this truck blew them away. The ride comfort is vey good for a truck and the interior is very roomy. With the MDS feature, I routinely get 20 MPG on highay driving. Can't wait to try it out in the snow.


Best Features

Hemi, remote starter, flat cargo floor option, storage consoles


Worst Features

Automatic headlights, steering wheel mounted stereo controls

Review

Every place I take it, I get the nice ride look or nod. Love the rear floading seats and storage. Please it has a Hemi. Sweet power and sounds great with the aid of flowmaster exhaust. If you don't have one, get one. If you have one, you know what I mean.


Best Features

The whole package is great.


Worst Features

None!

2008 Dodge Ram Pickup 1500 Quad Cab SLT 4dr Quad Cab 4WD SB (4.7L 8cyl 6M)


Review

New off the lot in Sept 08. 4X4 shift on the fly, auto trans, Lone Star package (20 inch rims, Goodyear HP tires, power seats, Etc.) 2000 miles to date. I reached 21 MPG on the highway at 65 MPH after I installed the K&N air filter. Not too bad for a 4X4 with 310 HP. Actual fuel mileage is 14 with a 30/70 mix of city and highway. Traded my 07 Reg cab Chevy Work truck, could not be happier. Never thought I would be a Dodge Man.


Best Features

Comfortable interior, can seat 4 full size adults, MPG not bad. Could not beat the price. Electric sliding rear window. Ground Clearance. 310 HP with the 4.7 liter. Lifetime power train warranty.


Worst Features

Needs automatic headlights, daytime running lights, standard mud flaps with 20 in wheels. The amount of stuff they through up is crazy, but hey they only cost $30 for a complete set and I installed them in 45 minutes.
