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


I needed a new vehicle for college, and I decided I wanted a pickup truck for the 6 hour drive out of state. I've always been a Dodge guy and fell in love with the Ram 1500. Its a Big Horn edition, which adds some nice features, I got it as a rebuilt with 8,000 miles on it. It is a blast to drive and I have had no problems with it, the HEMI produces plenty of power while getting a decent 17-18 MPG on the highway at 75 MPH. It is very comfortable for long road trips and just puttering around town, after you drive it for a few months, it doesn't even feel like a full size truck, overall i'm very happy with my Ram.

Best Features

HEMI is very powerful, comfortable, radio w/ aux input, power seats, interior is very simple with no frills, remote start.

Worst Features

Fuel mileage could be better, then again i could slow down a bit on the highway, but it is a big truck so its expected. Parking can still be a hassle, i'm getting better, but some spots just aren't the right size.
