2004 Dodge Ram Pickup 1500 4dr Quad Cab SLT Rwd SB (4.7L 8cyl 5M)


So far, the Hemi has been good, but in retrospect, I would either have elected to go with the 3.92 axle instead of the 3.55 (just trying to squeeze as much MPG as possible and based on $2.09/gallon, who could blame me?) for around town driving and towing or simply employ the 4.7L verus the Hemi I purchased. The Infinity Sound System Volume Limit and basic speakers were a dissappointment. The ride is quite comfortable, the straight-forward cabin layout is obviously German influenced and for the BETTER I say. I wish they would take another 3 inches out of the bed and add them to the rear cabin. All in all, a good value for $3k less than Ford or Chevy. Think about it.

Best Features

Cabin, cabin layout, huge center console and storage. Exterior styling, marginal crew-cab for an extended cab price. Logical engine layout arrangement. Easy flip up rear seat for storage access. A comfortable and quiet ride

Worst Features

Take another 3 inches out of the bed and add it to the rear cab. A 6' bed versus a 6' 3" bed is minimal. The 3 inches added to the cab would make this a perfect light-duty arrangement. Work on the mileage...it's not acceptable. Ford and Dodge both need work here. Chevy wins the MPG race hands-down.
