'03 Ram 5.9L V8

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


Overall I'm pleased with the truck. It looks great and has plenty of power on tap. No major problems except an emissions vapor canister which I have to replace. Mine is an early '03 so I still have the old 5.9L 360, but from the Hemi owners I've seen and talked to, I still get better gas mileage!

Best Features

The looks of the truck and sound of dual exhaust on Magnum power! Interior design is nice as well.

Worst Features

Fuel mileage isn't the greatest even with a K&N air filter, throttle body spacer, and Flowmaster exhaust. I get 13 city 15 highway at best, winter is worse! The transmission on this motor isn't the greatest. Shifts into O/D way to early.
