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


Overall, very dissatisfied with the engineering of this truck. The front doors rub and cut the weatherstrip off. Wind noise is worst in class. Rattles and squeeks like it has 10 times the mileage it has. The differential had to be replaced at 15k, and requires fluid changes every 15k otherwise. Seat motor burned up early. CD player ate a disk and required the Fonzerello treatment (that's a hard smack in the mouth for those of you who don't remember Happy Days). If anyone owns one, take a look behind the mud flaps on the front wheels, the paint will be worn completly off. The mistake I made in buying this truck was thinking that 35% off sticker price was a good deal.

Best Features

Horsepower, this thing will get up and go when it's not in the shop.

Worst Features

Wake up and make a reliable car that doesn't require 2" foam to seal the doors. Wake up again and realize that your door design cuts that 2" foam in half. Wake up again and go test drive a GMC Sierra so you know what a modern truck should feel and handle like.
