Review

After two great months I am still in
awe of this truck, I only have two
complaints 1. I wish my wife didnt like
to drive it so much, then I wouldnt be
driving a minivan to work. and 2. I
wish I had gotten the 5.7 HEMI instead
of the 4.7 so I could say YES to all
the ????

2003 Dodge Ram Pickup 1500 4dr Quad Cab SLT 4WD SB (4.7L 8cyl 5M)


Review

The truck is a 2003 SLT 1500 Quad Cab
4x4 Hemi with 20inch wheels. The brake
rotors warp, which cause the truck to
bounce during braking. Initial warpage
occurs around 3000 miles, most
dealerships appear to not acknowledge
the problem. Now that the truck has
passed 12k miles, I found a Technical
Service Bulletin (TSB) that suggests
turning the rotors and replacing the
pads. The rotors need replaced and not
turned as it is a defect in materials.


Best Features

The HEMI is awesome, its a shame it won't stop without rattling you and your cargo.


Worst Features

Install high quality rotors!

Review

I have a 2003 Hemi with around 8k on
miles and it and it hasn't been back
except for an Oil Change. Great Truck
it has way more power and people
always tell me what a great truck it
is. I also love the room and can put 6
people in the truck no problem. I have
never regreted not having the Bucket
Seats


Best Features

Hemi engine and 4doors as well as being able to put 6 peopl in it.


Worst Features

Not much but maybe more luxury features like automatic lights standard.

2003 Dodge Ram Pickup 1500 2dr Regular Cab ST Rwd SB (3.7L 6cyl 5M)


Review

love everything about it except the
engine 3.7 v-6 [wouldnt pull a greasy
string out of a cats rump)put in a k&n
air filter ,flowmaster 50 series
catback exhaust,nothing helps mine, has
a 5sp manual trans,figured it might get
more faster on acceleration with a few
more miles on it but no chance


Best Features

handling,ride,looks,styling,looks real good with a tube bolt over grill in it


Worst Features

better performance,from 210 hp,traded a 02 tocama 145 hp 4 cylinder,that would leave it in its tracks
