2006 Dodge Ram Pickup 2500 SLT 4dr Quad Cab SB (5.7L 8cyl 6M)

Review

Bought the 4X4, diesel, in June 2009. Traded in 2006 Tundra regular cab for it. Closed box beam frame, brakes that'd stop a locomotive, and an industrial grade diesel engine - all "the" requirements for a work truck. Interior is not glamorous, but the SLT has the essentials. SB has a tight turning radius; on a dime. Stock configuration sits up high off the ground. Low gear 4X4 transfer case; climbs up anything. Sound system has good tone; MP3 player plug in. Cab is quiet. Quab cab is roomy enough for adults for <300 mile trips. All around - looks manly; not an overchromed glitz truck. Best truck for the money.

Best Features

Cummins with 4 in pipe; rich sound. Mileage is unbelievable; 17 city, knocking on 23 hwy. Strongest 5.9 liter cummins configuration; no emissions crap for this year model. Rugged styling is reminiscent of the old 1940 series power wagons

Worst Features

GPS as standard equipment.
