I traded in my '03 Dodge 1500 4X4 QC
for the '04 Dodge 2500HD 4X4 QC and I
couldn't be happier.If you want a
truck for a truck (not because it is
the latest fad to drive with big HP)
then get the Dodge (1500 or 2500).It
has the most bang for the buck out of
the Big Three and the biggest "short
bed" out of any short bed pickup.
Ford is overpriced and underpowered,
Chevy needs an update and is way
expensive.You cannot go wrong with any
one of the Big Three, but Dodge
focused on the fundamentals of a
pickup truck where Chevy, Ford, and
Nissan are trying to make theirs more
The Hemi 5.7. Simple and ergonomic
inetrior design. Ride height and
stance of the 2500. Bed capacity. CD
player is standard. Rear windows go
ALL THE WAY DOWN.
Gas mileage (but you don't buy a truck
for that). More leg room for rear
passengers. Electric rear sliding
window. Rhino lining option @ dealer.
