Should Have Bought This Sooner!
By Dave on


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


Purchased the last 2005 model the dealer had on the lot. WOW! What a truck. If ever a truck could have too much power (5.7L Hemi)this is it. More standard Horse Power than a Mustang. I have (had) been a Chevy man my whole life. The look, feel, ride, and performance of this truck scream testosterone. PLENTY of room for 6 people (Quad-Cab). I was also informed by the dealer that 2005 is the last year Dodge is offering the 7 Year/70,000 mile powertrain warranty. Sticker on window was $34k but after rebates/incentives drove it off the lot for $22k. It also has the 4WD, SLT package.

Best Features

Power, Roominess, Smooth Ride

Worst Features

OK, so by now you've obviously read that the gas mileage may not be that great. The first thing I did was purchase a K&N Cold Air Intake (just Google K&N). I was getting 14MPG City/18MPG Highway. After intake I am getting 16 MPG City/22 MPG Highway. The thing you need to remember, this is a TRUCK
