2004 Dodge Ram Pickup 2500 4dr Quad Cab Laramie 4WD LB (5.7L 8cyl 5M)


I ordered this truck in late 2002 without even
a test drive. The hemi, I knew from the initial
reports was the engine that would be
revolutionary. After 4 months of anticipation,
my "faithful companion" arrived.

After 13 months, I've driven 38,000 miles.
For 3 months I traveled through the west into
Canada and over to Alaska. I'd love to share
the pictures of just how muddy this city boy
truck got after enduring the Dalton Highway
to the Arctic Ocean. If you thought Motor
Trends adventure was great, I could say the
Dodge had just as much fun.

If you’re ready for an adventure; this is the
place to start.

Best Features

Just listen to the Hemi purr over the mountain grades. Amazingly, I've seen milage as high as 16-19mpg. Easy to drive, handles like a car, just harder to find Bus sized parking!

Worst Features

I would love to see some back up sensors as offered by Ford for backing the truck. Although parallel parking is not really an option with this wheelbase. LOL I'd love to see trailer towing mirrors that automatically swing in while parked on the street or in tight city spaces.
