I purchased a loaded Sport Ram 1500 4
door about 7 months ago and haven't
regretted it in the least. The Ram
gives me plenty of leg, head, and
shoulder room. The interior is clean
and uncluttered but full of useful
storage space. This is my first Dodge
but it won't be my last. The Dodge is
my favorite full sized truck on the
market, it is also one of the most
affordable between Ford, Dodge, and
Chevy. I could buy more truck for less
money with a Dodge, and feel I got a
superior product as well. Its heavy,
safe, smooth, and dependable.
Folding storage panels under the rear
split seat are extremely handy. The
premium sound system (infinity) is
wonderful as are the steering wheel
mounted audio controls. Visibility is
exceptional, large windows eliminate
blind spots. Great ride, smooth
handling, tight turning radius.
The only thing that I see that could
use some improvement is the fuel
mileage. Aside from that I think its
I traded a '99 Chevy 1500 X-cab LT Z71,
back in March for this 02 Dodge 1500
4DR,4x4 SLT Sport. The Chevy handled
better, had much more power, did not
bounce all over the road when I hit a
bump, and got much better gas mileage.
If I had it to do all over again, I
would have gone back to a Chevy. I
really like the new look and 4 doors of
this vehicle but thats about it. The
transmission is not geared as well as
my old Chevy and just doesnt feel like
a truck with a 360 in it.
Interior is plush, stereo system is
very nice, lots or interior space and 4
doors are a big plus. Looks great
especially with the 20" rims.

I bought my pickup in August of
2002. The dealer had a demo with 13000
miles that had the options (Crew cab,
Dark red, 4.7V8, Premium seats,
aluminum wheels) that I wanted. I now
have over 25000 miles on the truck. I
have really enjoyed the smooth quiet
ride (for a truck) and the spacious
cab. I highly recommend the premium
seats. The engine is adequate but
could use more power especially for the
amount of fuel it consumes (average
15.4 MPG). I hardly notice the
transmission working. The truck feels
stable and easy to maneuver. Over all I
The best features are the four-door cab
big but not to big and the style.
The truck is great I love it. The only
thing wrong is I get A LOT of WIND
SOUND on the drivers door. I took it in
to Carmax in Los ANgeles and they tell
me nothing is wrong. I will try back
with Frahm but if they dont fix it I
will be trying a Ford in two years.
Lone Star edition of the Dodge Ram Crew
Cab is great. Fun to drive and makes
you feel like the king of the road!
Disappointment is gas mileage - only 11
to 12 in town and about 15.5 at 75mph
and about 17 if you only drive no
faster than 65mph. I traded in a 2001
Chevy Silverado Quad Cab 1500 for this
and have not been disappointed, except
for gas mileage.
20 inch wheels really set off what is
already a great looking truck. The four
full doors with rear windows that roll
all the way down is really a plus.
Posi-traction and 4 wheel disc brakes
also a plus on Lone Star Edition.
