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


Hemi power is a joke, could not spin the tires on wet grass. Starts to pull a little after 4000 rpm. I tow a two place snomobile trailer loaded and feels like the brakes are on. Ride is rough and choppy for a long wheel base. I have replaced all ujoints,tie rods,wheel bearings,ball joints,shocks and still it wanders all over the road.With some aftermarket add ons i can now pass for a sober driver but have to work at it.Still has a vibration at 75 that no one can fix.Sterio sounds really good when it feels like powering up but wont half the time.Rear power windows roll up and down great but only when they want to. 12 mpg on a great day but normally 9 or so.

Best Features

Every one says to me, man thats a sharp truck, it sounds really nice with dual flowmasters.Im like yea till my wife gets beside it in her yukon with a 6.2 vortec and leaves it like its going backwards. It does have a great amount of room and a sharp exterior and thats why i bought it. mpg? who really cares in a truck this size.

Worst Features

Dodge, figure out how to wire a your vehicles so electronics will last longer than it takes to drive it off the lot. Build a smooth running drive trane with no vibrations. Build a front end that isnt completely shot at 60k miles. Make it drive as good as a g.m. truck,lol.
