2004 Dodge Ram Pickup 2500 4dr Quad Cab SLT 4WD SB (5.7L 8cyl 5M)


I have had Chevys and Dodge trucks. This thing is awesome. I drove the Hemi. It is good but the diesel will eat it up. I suggest the Hemi for the 1500. It drives as tight as my wifes 99 Benz. It is very quiet for a diesel. When you factor in the lower service costs for the diesel it pays for itself. If you are taking off it will keep up. If you are in the 40 mph range or higher and kick it in passing gear, hold on! It will surprise you. The ride is smooth even though it is a 2500. Dodge has some intense brakes. It stops with authority. Interior space is good. I use the fold flat floor in the rear. Great for grocieries or large bluky items.

Best Features

The Diesel engine and the off road package. This adds a skid plate for the transfer case, 4:10 ratio, locking rear, tow hooks and fog lamps.

Worst Features

Make the trailering package or at least a class II reciever standard. People want it if they are buying a truck.
