'05 Ram 1500 4x4 Hemi Reg Cab
By Scott on


2005 Dodge Ram Pickup 1500 2dr Regular Cab ST 4WD SB (4.7L 8cyl 6M)


So far so good, engine takes awile to break in for better gas milage (I have a Hemi) I noticed an improvement at about 5000 miles and a slight improvement at 10,000 miles. I get 14 city and 17 Hwy at 11,000 miles. Have trans issue, see suggested improvements.

Best Features

The Power... the truck is fast.. have a Hemi with 3.92 gear and limited slip.

Worst Features

Trans-1)no backflow valve to hold transmition fluid in trans after use. When I start the truck sometimes does not shift properly for about 15-30 seconds of use until trans fluid is back in. 2) Under wide open throttle from a dead stop does not shift into second gear properly-about a second delay.
