By first dodge on


2005 Dodge Ram Pickup 1500 4dr Quad Cab SLT 4WD SB (4.7L 8cyl 6M)


My first Dodge got off to a poor
start. On the third day of ownership I
noticed a large puddle of oil under
the truck. After having to wait a
couple of days to get the truck in for
service a “hole” was found in the
front wheel differential (4x4). I was
given a free loaner and 8 days later I
got my new truck back. It has been
trouble free since. The 5.7 Hemi makes
good power and sounds great (and no
complaints on mileage), nice shifting
5 speed automatic, comfortable
automobile like ride, rock solid build
quality and plenty of well thought out
in cabin storage. It beats my previous
Chevy and Ford trucks hands down, I’m

Best Features

5.7 Hemi, optional 34 gallon gas tank, big truck aggressive look, it has a nice ride good handling and sharp steering (for a truck), in cabin storage, solid build (no rattles or squeaks), 20" wheels.

Worst Features

Optional GPS navigation not up to par with other systems, radio and GPS display when in auto mode and odometer become unreadable if you need to turn your lights on during the day, gear selector a bit ergonomically awkward.
