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


I have had the truck for just over 7
months now. I really have enjoyed
every aspect of it. Has some serious
get up and go. I took it up against
one of my friends who has the new Hemi
and blew his doors off. We then each
put 3,000 lbs trailers on headed up the
the mountain. I couldnt even see him
in my mirror!!! And at the gas pump he
paid, where mine wasnt much more
different than normal. With a chip,
air intake and exhaust adding well over
180lbs of torque I feel I could take
almost any car, let alone truck on the

Best Features

I really enjoy the sleak design with the comfortable ride. For a 3/4 ton pickup it rides great. Tons better than the Ford, but not as nice as the Chevy. Of course the HP, has more than the Duramax, but just a shade less than the Ford Powerstroke.

Worst Features

Things I think the should improve is the area above the bumper, but just under the lights. This area is a joke, paint peeled after first 5,000 miles. However was covered under warranty. If you have a new truck, get a clear bra put on before you have any problems.
