It's been a good truck
By travelguy on


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


Bought this truck new, now has 144000 miles on it. Very good gas mileage for a large truck - 16 to 19 on the highway depending on the wind. Had to replace the front brake calipers & pads @ 100K - this is a dodge design defect where the calipers hang up and ruin the pads. this is the second Dodge truck I've owned, and both suffered upholstery tears due to sharp edges from the seat frame cutting through the foam padding and through the fabric. If buying a 2WD, get the limited slip differential - it gets you through snow and up slippery boat ramps great. Great truck, but poor interior quality needs to have some attention from the Dodge engineers. Otherwise, buy it right and enjoy.

Best Features

Four full doors, 4.7L has ample power for towing a heavy boat, smooth ride, good gas mileage for a large truck.

Worst Features

More comfortable rear seats, better quality seating and design.
