Review

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.


Favorite Features

Everything is awesome


Suggested Improvements

Dash cracks not bad but this tends to be a problem with Dodge

Review

This model of Dodge truck is the last before the 600 Cummins was introduced, and the fueling problems that came with it. With class-leading towing and load capacities, this truck makes no excuses for anything you ask of it. Drive throughs are interesting with the wide stance, but you forget about that as you look down to the window where your food is waiting. I cannot say enough that this truck has simply made me a happy man again, after dealing with inferior vehicles for far too long. Even my neighbors with their V-10 and Diesel Fords and Chevrolets are jealous. You need a truck for a good ride and awesome capabilities while still getting decent mileage? This is the one for you.


Favorite Features

Engine. Towing capacity. Payload capacity. Power. Appearance. Comfort. Options. Fuel Mileage. Handling.


Suggested Improvements

Update the dash for more ergonomics. Update the seats for a bit less initial lumbar bolster. Put a transmission in it that matches the brute strength of the Cummins TD engine (can you get a hold of Allison's?)

Review

Went from a 454 to the Cummins. This is one heck of a motor. Great mpg and power. Truck looks great. I love so much about this truck. I got mine with the 6sp, Still don't trust Dodge's automatic. I only have minor complains about this truck. It's been the best truck I've own and that's coming from a Chevy man.


Favorite Features

The design. Drives like a truck should. Seats high like a truck should. I like almost everything about this truck. Also holds resale vaule well. My loan pay off actully drops faster than the truck valve.


Suggested Improvements

Odd size tires(expensive)The headlights too dim. blind spots due to big pillers Water leaks from the cab lights and door seals. Had to repalce u-joing twice now at 60K. Make a true full size 4 door alway hitting my knee with the bottom of the door cause they come out so far.All minor would buy again

Review

Excellent power, relatively quiet engine, very good diesel mileage. I have hauled over 4000 pounds in the bed, and used 2nd gear to start, did not need low. Cab needs some more space, my old Ford was a lot larger, especially the back seating area. Good access to air, radio controls. It has a good strong ride, and is very easy to drive, easier than the Ford or Chevy. It turns easily with a long horse trailer. Will buy another Cummins diesel truck, if I can wear this one out.


Favorite Features

Reliable power, mileage, good brakes


Suggested Improvements

Improve and expand the cab. Give more room for back seat passengers.
