2009 Dodge Ram Pickup 3500 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.

Best Features

The 6.7 teamed with the 6 speed manual. The rugged good looks and the exaust brake

Worst Features

Ecm software that does'nt block after market tuners. The infinity sound system is not what I expected and the interior needs some upgrading(big time)
