2003 Dodge Ram Pickup 2500 4dr Quad Cab SLT 4WD SB (5.7L 8cyl 5M)


We purchased this truck to pull campers and car trailers with. Unbelievable power from the Cummins HO Diesel. This truck can pull 15,000# trailers and hardly notice they are back there. Mileage is outstanding with 21 MPG unloaded and 13/14 pulling trailers. This is impressive after getting 5-7 with Ford 460 gas engines. Engine noise is a little louder than I care for inside the cabin. Three kids love the backseat room. Ride is suprisingly smooth compared to 3/4 ton Chevy's I have owned in the past.

Best Features

This will sound silly but the flip up towing mirrors seem to provide the best of both worlds. The diesel engine almost gives the feel of gas acceleration with the power of a Peterbilt.

Worst Features

This truck has a six speed manual and it lock the doors at 15 mph. This is great however, it never unlocks the doors when you stop. Have read the manual multiple times and procedure outlined does not shut the autolocking feature off.
