RAM 2500 -- gulp!
By ram05fan on
Vehicle
2005 Dodge Ram Pickup 2500 4dr Quad Cab ST 4WD SB (5.7L 8cyl 6M)
Review
Overall, the fit, finish, and ride for the 2005 RAM 2500 with the HEMI is quite good. While the chassis is fairly stiff, the ride is reasonable. If you're expecting anything in terms of gas mileage, this isn't your truck. The HEMI works pretty hard at propelling the 6,000 lb truck down the road. If you're looking for a RAM 2500, spend the bucks and get the Cummins. The M5 tranny is for tow-mules only! Mileage is 11-12 in mixed hwy/cty driving mainly because 5th gear is way too high. 1st gear is a granny gear, effectively making this a 4 speed. Overall, it's a pretty decent truck but the Cummins drivetrain is a must. I'll probably sell my HEMI truck in a year.
Favorite Features
The availability of the no-frills ST package, with tough cloth seating surfaces, rubber floor. Available manual transmission, even though the gearing isn't optimal. Full control of the lighting system. No Daytime Running Lights.
Suggested Improvements
Offer 6-speed manual with overdrive for cruising. 70mph at 1750rpm should be doable. Factory headers. Better headlights. Real foglights - amber lamps with sharp cutoff in beam above the horizontal. Rear seat cup holders.
