Great truck, great price
By Bob Martin on


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


This truck simply looks amazing! The
fit and finish is very tight. All
gaps are straight and even. Dash
layout is simple, straightfoward and
easy to use. For a truck it's size,
the gas mileage is on par but still
shocking at first, expect 14MPG in
mixed driving. Very comfortable
family hauler, good for my small kids
(needs rear headrest though). You
will not notice the 3" they took from
the bed; and bed is still a foot
longer than the Ford s-crew. The rear
is a little bouncy, but this is
normal, with a load or 250lb weight in
the back, handles like a sedan. I
love this truck.

Best Features

I always receive compliments; something that never happened with my previously owned Ford. Exhaust has a pleasant rumble without being obnoxious. Interior fit and finish very tight - I was surprised by Dodge, must be the Daimler influence. Lots of room for the price!

Worst Features

Engine adequate for regular transporting (what I use the truck for), but would be inadequate for "real" work. Better cruise control features (odd button pattern). Clearcoat a little soft.
