Review of the 2005 Dodge Ram Pickup 3500

  • The heavy-duty Ram offers serious diesel power, stout suspensions and a well-built, functional interior -- all of which make it an impressive package for hard-core truck users.

    Powerful engine lineup, huge payload and towing capacities, comfortable interior, compliant ride, available side-curtain airbags.

Bad paint real bad ride

Vehicle: 2005 Dodge Ram Pickup 3500 4dr Quad Cab ST 4WD SB (5.9L 6cyl Turbodiesel 6M)

After receiving my black Dodge the clear coat would not protect the paint even w/ extra care . Bought this for hauling goose neck trailers. What I got was a truck equiped with a roller coaster past life that reminds you at 35 empty and 55 loaded that it is not designed for pulling trailers. The 4x4 dully long bed has a drive line alignement problem that can not be fixed. 7,000 miles on a $43,000 trk and its the worst ever.
