It's no Viper, but what a truck!
By viperdude on


2004 Dodge Ram Pickup 1500 SRT-10 2dr Regular Cab Rwd SB (8.3L 10cyl 6M)


With a slightly modified '96 RT/10
already nestled in my garage, I didn't
expect the truck to rival its
performance. It doesn't. After all,
it's hauling around nearly a ton more
in curb weight. But this baby is
plenty quick and fun to drive. It's
thirsty at 10.3 mpg, about what I get
from the RT/10 under reasonably normal
(?)driving conditions. Bottom line -
it's nice to have an "almost" Viper
with electric windows, good air
conditioning, a radio you can hear, and
a truck bed for the golf clubs.

Best Features

Bad boy looks, adjustable pedals, rockin' radio/CD, easy to drive and comfortable despite the stiff ride.

Worst Features

Satellite radio, color-keyed tonneau would be welcomed as standard features. A little more growl in the exhaust. This thing doesn't start to howl until you push past 4000 rpm. The "burble" effect emulates the Viper sound when you rap it. Very cool.
