Great cheap truck
By Bob Hall on


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


Great truck. No problems ever, except the front door seals chewing themselves up (replaced under warranty with the redesigned seal). The way this truck is driven, it may sit unstarted for weeks but then pretty much every time it is used for a property company, it is hauling a full load or towing. Never a hiccup, starts right up, and it gets an unbelievable number of "hey, nice truck" comments even being four years old. At Lowe's they even comment about how they see more Dodges than anything else at the commercial dock.

Best Features

Ride, comfort, power, solid feel, cheaper than Ford or Chevy for comparable model

Worst Features

Counterbalanced tailgate, which I think the 09's will have, and make the half- ton model ride a little lower
