2006 Dodge Ram Pickup 2500 Mega Cab SLT 4dr Mega Cab SB (5.7L 8cyl 5A)
This is a diesel megacab, 2WD review. 93000 on the odometer-maybe will be called the best overall vehicle I've owned. On the road 22.4 mpg, in town 19-no hot doggin, and yes, the truck is capable of spinning the tires- whenever. Great room for a big/tall guy, and the person behind him. Not an intown vehicle-is not a short radius turner, and at 7600#, it doesn't handle or brake like a Porsche. But it is a very capable truck. Ride is truck like. Removed a leaf in the rear to help soften ride-I don't haul much. Three decided mfg. defects- engine has a breather tube which drips black engine oil, exhaust pipe too short-soots the rear quarter panel, spokes on wheel (al) had chatter marks.
Vehicle has low end torque emblematic of diesel-this is a nice characteristic. For a huge vehicle mileage is exceptional-but don't expect a Prius-note what I wrote above. Actually a capable highway machine w. the best cruise control I've ever had.
I was sorry Chrysler discontinued this vehicle. Go figure.
