2009 Dodge Ram Pickup 3500 Quad Cab SLT 4dr Quad Cab 4WD LB DRW (6.7L 6cyl Turbodiesel 6M)

Review

I traded in a 2000 ford with the 7.3 diesel. It was chipped and had after market exaust, intake and after market 4r100 trans. This is my 2nd Dodge (had a 72 PW) So far I'm liking this truck, the ford was much faster from 0 to 60 but the 6.7 Cummins has better low end torque and pure pulling power. It handles a 14,600 pound 38 ft toy hauler very well(in the mountains of Oregon). The 6 speed manual allows me to keep it in the power band on hills without much effort. The milage is not great yet but I am hoping for improvment (14.5-16) empty and 10-12 pulling. The over all build quality isn't what the ford was, only time will tell if it all holds up.

2009 Dodge Ram Pickup 3500 Quad Cab ST 4dr Quad Cab LB DRW (6.7L 6cyl Turbodiesel 6M)

Review

Have had my new truck for 2.5 months and have 4800 miles on it. I use it for work and tow a 21 foot toy hauler loaded that weighs roughly 9000lbs total. Have 6 spd manual and it works particularly well since I drive over the high sierra mostly. Fuel mileage on my most recent long trip (3000 miles) averaged 10.5 for the duration. That was through Northern Nevada, Colorado, New Mexico and Arizona. Worked great love the power. Yesterday hauled firewood with a 7000lb dump trailer in snow and decomposed granite. Use low range which shifted in beautifully and having the exhaust brake is a big plus. I enjoy driving the truk itself really like Uconnect and the general feel.

Review

I have just purchased this vehicle and I am very satisfied so far. I have a 2900 lb truck camper loaded in it and power wise it has no issues. The camper does cause it to sway a little but with air bag add-ons I don't think that it will have any trouble. The mileage with the camper is about 11 but I figure that since there is only 1000 miles on this truck it should get a lot better.

Review

This is still new so the mileage has not settled. First Cummings and it has impressed, much more responsive than my Detroits and the International. I miss the full steel front bumper and I'd like a heavier rear bumper. With the 4x4 it is pushing my equipment trailer like it's weightless. Also never considered a truck with a sunroof, but I'm loving it. uConnect is great, dials both phones. NOW the bad, wanted the heated & cooled seats, toolboxes, climate control, lifetime warranty. These are 1500 only.

Just got this truck about 2 weeks ago and love it. The exhaust brake is awesome. Truck is still in the breaking in process so power and mileage should improve although I have no complaints now. Overall super nice truck!

I just plain like driving it all day.

Best Work Truck on the Market

2009 Dodge Ram Pickup 3500 Quad Cab ST 4dr Quad Cab 4WD LB DRW (6.7L 6cyl Turbodiesel 6M)

Review

I traded my 06 3500 which was loaded and had the Cummins 5.9L for the 09 3500 ST with the 6.7L. Both are 4WD DRW. The 09 has a 6 spd man tran and is a bare-bones work horse. It has much more power then the 5.9L did, and the manual tran helps manage the power band well. I tow both a large boat and large 5th wheel with ease. I am hoping for better fuel economy when the engine becomes broken-in, which occured about the 17K point with the 06. MPG increased about 25% at that point. If you need a truck to work for you take a serious look at the Dodge. I have owned 2 F350's and now on my 2nd Dodge 3500. Dodge wins hands down!

Real Truck

2009 Dodge Ram Pickup 3500 Quad Cab ST 4dr Quad Cab 4WD SB (6.7L 6cyl Turbodiesel 6M)

Review

This truck is built for work but it can be used as a daily driver. I ony have 2500 mile on it so far and the MPG is as follows. HWY 16.8 City 14 Towing a trailer with 8,000 lbs 12 MPG. Maybe the MPG will increase as the engine breaks in. The dealership has been very helpful with the few minor questions. The Diesel Exhaust Brake should stay on per dodge but you have to engage it every start up.

Power, it's what this truck is all about. I farm and pull horse trailer and racecar trailer and when you hit the road, you forget about what's behind you. Fuel mileage is about 19 t0 20 and I am greatful to that. The only truck in the market that is a true diesel.

Wanted Better

Review

Sold my 06 Ford 6.0 with a chip, it had more power and take off speed than this Dodge does. This Cummins is great, however, I am concerned about the rest of the truck. The dash seems to be made of cheap, thin, plastic. Ride is a little rough compared to the Ford I used to have. I have 13000 on this one so far, have had it to the dealership twice for electronic items that had failed! I hope things get better with my new Dodge, but I do miss my Ford!
