The Ram 1500 4x4 4 door is a strong truck with some problems. It has a view issue when turning to your left. The exterior paint is failing from under the clear coat to the top. Bad grip during wet conditions. It has type of skip when A/C is on and in idle. The dealership showed that all the '05s have it. The bed cover (extra) lock quit working. Engine is powerful though.
Strong engine and body style
Better visuals when turning. Better suspension. Paint job!
I drive 30,000 per year. Transmission is slipping when you first start out or after truck has sat for one hour. The dealer said it was a bad filter. Transmission still slips. I will take it back again. The truck is an '05 with 50,000 miles. I have never towed anything with it.
I traded my BMW M3 convertible in on this beast and it's one of the best things I ever did. I love this truck. It's a hoot to drive and I enjoy the power. I've added alot of aftermarket things to it such as dual exhaust, a Mopar cold air intake, a sprayed in bed liner, a brush guard on the front, a remote starter, to cool it off in the heat of summer before I get in it and a few other little things that make it uniquely mine. It's great! Seems that a lot of the men that I work with appreciate it too. They're always asking about the things that I've done to it. I'm very proud of my truck
Remote starter, cold air intake, 4 doors, sprayed in bedliner, front brush guard, crome door panel molding, chrome accents, apperance, and the fact that it's Mopar!
Maybe a little better back seat. more padded, and the ability to adjust the recline on the back rest of the rear seat. Everything else is great!
This truck has been a blast for me to drive around town and on the highways. The coolest moments about driving this truck has been when I'm at a dead stop and I take off screeching the tires and everyone turns their heads. The Hemi realy does command respect. But driving my truck would be whole lot more enjoyable if it was not for those high gas prices, they cost me about 60 dallors to fill up now. Though even if I got one of those smaller engines I still would be hurt (but not as much) so I will just stick with what I got and hope gas does not go up any more.
My favorite features about this vehicle would be the style of the controls in center of the dash board and basicly the whole layout of of the truck interior. The Hemi would be my biggest like about this truck if I just had to pick one.
The grille in the front can be a little smaller to give it that cool sleek feel that Dodge fans fell in love with like in the 1994-2001 models.
