Traded Toyota... Don't regret it...

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


I traded my Tundra in on this truck.. and I got the big diesel $5K upgrade package with 4speed automatic. Loved my Toyota, but I bought a 10K lb. enclosed trailer and it felt like the trailer was driving the truck. I have no problem towing with this truck and recently did so in a level 3 snow emergency with no problem! My Tundra got 14-18 MPG... this gets 15-22mpg and it is a heck of a lot larger. 6'4" tall person fits comfortably in the back seat. The suspension is for towing... so it can be rough. Tundra could go 40mph over speedbumps and RR tracks.. Do that here and you get airborne, but that is expected. PS - use diesel conditioner in cold temperatures or it won't run. Dealer didn't mention that

Best Features

Fold out mirrors for towing!.. and under seat storage... Both are very convenient!

Worst Features

Ash tray is cheap and may not open.. or may not stay closed depending on its mood. The ashtray in my $2000 Neon is 100 times nicer. Also... Work on elimating the rattle made by the fold flat storage shelves... Love them.. hate the occasional noise.
