'04 5.7L Hemi Rumble Bee
By Zepp on


2005 Dodge Ram Pickup 1500 2dr Regular Cab SLT Rwd SB (4.7L 8cyl 6M)


Just bought the truck on the 1st of the
month, and have only driven about 1000
miles, but I love this truck... I traded
in an '02 Chevy Avalanche and couldn't
be happier with the trade. I was
originally looking for a 2dr, sb Hemi
but when I saw the $2600 Solar Yellow
Rumble Bee option package (see dodge.com
for a description as Edmunds makes no
mention of this limited edition) with
the dealer installed custom leather
seats, I fell in love with it... I have
always been a fan of yellow and when I
took it for the test drive, the off the
line acceleration, tons of power across
the powerband and deep throaty exhaust
note had me hooked!

Best Features

Hemi engine lives up to it's famous predecessor. It's fast and can haul plenty of cargo. Perfect! Great interior features such as well designed dash, shopping bag hooks all over, storage tray behind seats, and fold-down center console and under seat storage bin are all great.

Worst Features

The seats could do with bolsters as I tend to slip around a bit in the curves. As is typical of leaf spring rear ends on pick-up trucks, the rear wheels hop over bumps and the ride can be somewhat harsh on some surfaces, but nothing different than the late model Chevy's and Fords I've driven.
