What a Bargain! with the 5.9 Cummins
By gkato on


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


Just traded in an 03 Avalanche 1500 for
the 5.9 SLT 'Bighorn'. Compared the
Silverado Duramax, and the Dodge is a
steal! The Chevy rides softer, but the
Dodge with the 'New 5.9 and tranny' out
perform the Chevy (and thousands
cheaper). I will tow a 10,000lb tow
hauler in the spring, and will followup
with a report on towing.

Best Features

Turbo diesel 5.9, Torque +600lbs, gas mileage. Looks great, and big brakes and 4" exhaust to boost the horsepower and mileage.

Worst Features

Needs just a few more bells and whistles without going up to the Larimie package (i.e. homelink garage door openers) In fact, there is 'no' place to put a garage door opener. Put a bedliner in as standard equipment please.
