2008 Dodge Ram Pickup 1500 Quad Cab SLT 4dr Quad Cab LB (4.7L 8cyl 5A)


Review

Recently bought the Big Horn edition. Was a little gun shy about buying a Dodge have always been a Ford guy so far seems like a good buy. The only issue so far is the rear end seems a little light seems to hydroplane easier then it should. Truck came with Goodyear HP's so I know it's not cheap tires. If anyone has an idea what may be the cause please remark. Overall we like our Ram truck!


Best Features

Lift up rear seat, Sirius radio. Overall exterior looks.


Worst Features

MPG. Rear end stablity.

2008 Dodge Ram Pickup 1500 Quad Cab Laramie 4dr Quad Cab 4WD SB (5.7L 8cyl 5A)


Review

Great truck! Turns surprisingly well for a large pickup. Plenty of power when towing my camper (5000 lbs) or when the bed is loaded. 4wd gripping is great. Went up an unpaved, icy, 300 foot driveway at about a 25% to 30% grade without slipping at all.


Best Features

Power. Remote start. Cornering stability. Chrome package.


Worst Features

Stereo controls on steering wheel. Mudflaps standard. Better fuel mileage (although it's tough with an engine of this size)

Review

After owning a 2000 Ram and now a 2008 Ram Quad Cab, I wouldn't own any other truck. I've never had any significant problems with the Ram. It's very dependable and tough. The quad cab is very comfortable for adults in the front and the back seat. The 5.7 Hemi is an awesome motor. It has plenty of power and the exhaust has a nice rumble to it. The Ram looks intimidating on the road with its huge chrome grille and 20 inch wheels. The ride is smooth for a truck and feels very solid. The anti spin rear differential provides great traction. I am very happy with my new Ram.


Best Features

Hemi engine, chrome 20 inch wheels, keyless entry, Sirius radio, two tone paint, bedliner, lifetime power train warranty.


Worst Features

The only area I can suggest improving is using a little less plastic in the interior. It doesn't quite measure up with the quality of the rest of the truck but overall, it's still not bad.

Review

This was my full-size truck purchase. The overall appearance of the Ram and its power clinched the deal for me. After test driving all the competition, this truck blew them away. The ride comfort is vey good for a truck and the interior is very roomy. With the MDS feature, I routinely get 20 MPG on highay driving. Can't wait to try it out in the snow.


Best Features

Hemi, remote starter, flat cargo floor option, storage consoles


Worst Features

Automatic headlights, steering wheel mounted stereo controls

Review

Every place I take it, I get the nice ride look or nod. Love the rear floading seats and storage. Please it has a Hemi. Sweet power and sounds great with the aid of flowmaster exhaust. If you don't have one, get one. If you have one, you know what I mean.


Best Features

The whole package is great.


Worst Features

None!
