2005 Dodge Ram Pickup 2500 4dr Quad Cab SLT 4WD SB (5.7L 8cyl 6M)


I was a die hard Ford man. Drove several Powerstrokes. I then drove the Dodge. Handling is better, doesn't feel cheap or poorly built inside. No squeaks, rattles, or anything. The Cummins is just as quiet, if not more so, on the highway and wow, is it fast. Also a lot cheaper than a new Ford. Nearly $6000, that is like a free diesel engine. If you are serious about a truck like this, drive them all! I drove the Chevy at a car show after I bought the Dodge. The Duramax doesn't compare.

Best Features

The Cummins Diesel. Great engine. Interior features, fold flat storage, center console. I use both all the time.

Worst Features

Wish I would have got a sunroof. Also a power sliding rear window would be great. Tough to reach from the front seat. Ford has a good idea with that integrated trailer brake, mine did come with a wiring harness however. No wire cutting.
