2008 Dodge Ram Pickup 1500 SLT 4dr Quad Cab 4WD SB (4.7L 8cyl 6M)


I've now reached 30,000 miles on my Hemi Big Horn Quad Cab with only two issues. A mismatched DC adapter caused the entire vehicle to shut down. Had to disconnect the battery to reset the system. Other is a crack in the windshield caused by a rock. This truck is absolutely fantastic. Smooth powerful ride, towing a 7000 lb boat over Cottonwood pass with ease. I consistently average 18 mpg at 75 mph. Heads turn and thumbs up from the style and rich wine red color. I bought this at the end of '08 for $20K off of sticker and I am completely satisfied with this vehicle. Awesome chrome package that other dodge owners have offered to buy time and time again.

Best Features

Shoot - just about everything. The ride, the power, the sound, the color, Sirius. What's not to love? Love the compliments - people have to come up and comment on it daily.

Worst Features

Sheet metal is just a bit too weak. managed 15 months before the first shopping cart ding. A truck needs to be tougher. Stock stereo has poor sound quality.

Agree on the sheet metal. Had my first casualty a year ago with a inconsiderate Lexus owner letting her door fly open. Agree ten fold with your review. 32K on mine and she is trucking right along.
