2002 Dodge Ram Pickup 1500 2dr Regular Cab ST 2WD SB (3.7L 6cyl 5M)


To those of you looking for a toy- keep looking. This monster is too big to be a toy, especially if your playground is the urban jungle. The truck is managable-the turning radius is good- but at the same time, the enormous mirrors (I have the trailer tow) and wide body make maneuvering in tight spaces difficult. Acceleration from the 5.9 is average at best (esp. on the highway) and gas mileage is subpar. Handling is very good,(I have the 20s), but the ride is terrible. The truck crashes over everything and will change lanes if you don't have two hands on the wheel. All in all, it's a good truck with three bagfulls of character...just know that one of those bags WILL be offensive/bad/annoying.

Best Features

I love the seating position, the comfy seats, the effective HVAC, the useful trailer mirrors (no blind spot!), and the ultra-handy shelving in back & cushions in the middle.

Worst Features

There aren't many spaces to easily & quickly store small items. There are only 2 holes in the dash for a cell phone and a wallet, and there really isn't anywhere for change. Auto headlights, a telescoping steering wheel, locking storage, and a fold- flat passenger seat would be nice, too.
