I ordered my Ram 3500 HO CTD Laramie fully loaded. I drive this every day and the truck now has 270,000 miles on it. Had no problems, rebuilt trans at 219,000 for 1st time, ATS Torque conv. Billet shafts, truck has been modified since 140,000 miles, Diesel Dyno 50 HP injectors, exhaust, bully dog downloader, intake work, larger turbo. Truck is very fast and is not always driven easy. Engine has never been touched outside of injectors, water pump, new trans, larger driveshafts, Ball Joints 1st at 140K, and again this time with Core Products. Paint is good, leather seats still good, most of my friend can believe it looks so good with all these miles on it.

I got mine with 10,000 on it. I have drove the crap out of it but I dont abuse it. i have over 120,000 and it starts every day never no major problems I even have the auto. I have done the oil change every 5000 miles, and regular maintence. It does need ball joints in front end and I replaceed all the ujoints this year thats about it. The driver window lock switch broke. thats about all. I am happy with mine

Best truck ever, strong fast and cool. This truck is fun to trick out and has a great ride plus feels like a tank. The 2003 Dodge Ram 3500 is the coolest best and most fun truck on the road and continues to be.
Dodge redid its Ram 1500 full-size truck for 2002. For 2003, the heavies -- the 2500 and 3500 -- get their day in the sun. Along with the new Ram styling, these trucks receive more powerful engines, increased towing capacities, improved handling characteristics and additional safety equipment.
