2006 Dodge Ram Pickup 1500 Laramie 4dr Quad Cab 4WD SB (5.7L 8cyl 5A)


This truck is half the truck my 98 gmc z71 was. I mean the 4 wheel drive has a mild low range and cant really get the truck to pull the boat out of the water. The ride is rough and have no idea that a truck made in 2006 can get the same fuel economy as a model A. The comfort of the seat is like siting on a rock. I dont know if its because the truck is cheaply made or that all the other american made trucks are that much better. Also if you lean against the truck you will dent the slim sheet metal. I can't think of any other truck that shifts as much as this one. It dosen't even know when it wants to.

Best Features

The looks and maybe that well the looks. Wife looks hot in it.

Worst Features

Maybe you can start by trading for a Ford or Chevy but you will nead alot more money because there is no resale value. If theres improvements to make it would be the engine.It's very powerful but has no low end torque. If you tow,load dirtbikes or just want to get firewood this truck is not for you.
