2003 Dodge Ram Pickup 2500 4dr Quad Cab SLT 4WD LB (5.7L 8cyl 5M)


I fell in love with this truck the first time I drove it. The HO Diesel has better seat of pants feel in acceleration than the '01 5.9L gas truck I had. I tow an 18 foot car hauler with a tractor on it (approx. 7,000 lbs. total) about 30% of the time. With this truck I hardly know the trailer is behind me. I am very pleased with the mileage. I normally average 19- 20 unloaded on the highway and I get about 15 around town pulling the trailer/tractor. The fit and finish is great. The truck rides better than the '01 1500 I had. I love the extra room with the 4 doors. The only thing I would change about this truck is to have larger rear doors with more room.

Best Features

Favorite feature is the HO with the 48RE automatic transmission. I live in Houston and did not want to have to shift gears all the time.

Worst Features

Make the rear doors larger. Have an optional tire or tires that are more aggressive than the standard highway tread available for the 4X4 trucks.
