Great vehicle hands down. First time
Dodge owner and probably will buy
again. The 5.9L needs more punch and
gas mileage per cubic inch (willing to
accept low MPG for more HP). Sport
Package should come with header/exhaust
system upgrade. The 4 speed Auto
shift/downshift points need another
look at (would be fine with beefier
motor). CD player skips on bumpy roads.
Excellent built vehicle, ride is
comfortable, and room for everything.
Quad Cab, Infinity Sound, Cargo area w/
back seats in up position, and of
course, tough looks.
Another 50-75HP from the 5.9L, Header &
Performance Exhaust option, CD Player
to accept road conditions better.
This one is the sport version. Use the
truck for work. I wanted a truck that
could carry a 6" step ladder in and
this was the only crew cab that could
do it. The 4.7 has plenty of power,
fuel economy is pretty much as rated.
The large hood makes it difficult to
park. 4Wd works good in snow. Interior
is handy an versatile. Rear seats are
roomy and can carry
Audio controls on steering wheel.
Overhead console. Storage area between
front seats. back seat versatility
Blind spot where pillar between
windshield and side door and side
mirrors meet. Ride on rough roads
I've driven/owned Ford, Chevy, and now
Dodge. This Ram is the best overall by
far. No mechanical problems, drives
like a dream. The Dodge folks really
put some thought into this.
Biggest difference: Dodge has more
interior room, no mechanical problems,
and the layout was well thought out.
Storage inside; rear seats really get
out of the way (as opposed to the Ford).
Lots of interior room, very comfortable
Good movement from the V8, not sluggish
at all. Great handling.
How about a pushbutton 4WD to get the
current floor shifter out of the way?
the truck as a whole is great as it
does everything i need in good form.
my only complaint would be the
interior seems very cheap in certain
places. it has door rattles that are
worst then a 1912 dodge and the AC
openings have all but one got all
messed up and off track. they rest is
great, engine, reliabilty, comfort,
PRICE!!!!!!!!! I got an SLT that
stickered for 27700 for 19999!!!!!
interior quality, a sunroof would be
nice, and perhaps a DVD option to
compete with the for and GM folks
I have owned the truck now for 8
months and have 14,300 miles on it. I
have the 4.7 engine and it produces
plenty of horsepower and torque. The
20" wheels/tires add a very nice touch
to the truck. Plenty of room in the
rear for 3 s and or kids. Rear
doors open all the way allowing easy
access. Driverside power seat is a
nice feature to get. Without one, I
felt like I was sunk way too low in
the cab and I am not short. Solid
truck and very satisfied.
