It's a good thing that Dodges don't hold their value!
By jwestie85 on


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


Seriously... it's a fact. Dodge's DO NOT hold their value compared to, say an F150 or a Sierra, or a Silverado. BUT... This is a good thing because that means you and I can get our hands on a really good, really appealing truck for $1000s less! I've had 3 Dodge's so far, one with a 3.7 V6, one with a 4.7 V8, and one with the 5.7 HEMI V8 (Awesome engine!), and i wished i'd kept all three. Unfortunately i suffer from, "Gotta' have the next thing-itis" and i think it's terminal. All 3 trucks were great, the V6 was really underpowered, the 4.7 was normal, but the HEMI was incredible. Got rid of the HEMI a few months ago and it had 238,000 miles and ran like it had 50k, no lie. I LOVE EM.

Best Features

HEMI power, Feel like you're the king of the road especially when you're driving a 4x4 Dodge with 35's, I particularly think that this generation Ram is the best looking truck on the road except for maybe the 09 and up

Worst Features

Cheap feeling interior (especially the dash plastic) Suspension is really bumpy, Also, never had a Dodge get good gas mileage at all.
