It's big, burly, and a blast to own
By GlennM on


2003 Dodge Ram Pickup 3500 4dr Quad Cab SLT Rwd LB DRW (5.7L 8cyl 5M)


This model of Dodge truck is the last before the 600 Cummins was introduced, and the fueling problems that came with it. With class-leading towing and load capacities, this truck makes no excuses for anything you ask of it. Drive throughs are interesting with the wide stance, but you forget about that as you look down to the window where your food is waiting. I cannot say enough that this truck has simply made me a happy man again, after dealing with inferior vehicles for far too long. Even my neighbors with their V-10 and Diesel Fords and Chevrolets are jealous. You need a truck for a good ride and awesome capabilities while still getting decent mileage? This is the one for you.

Best Features

Engine. Towing capacity. Payload capacity. Power. Appearance. Comfort. Options. Fuel Mileage. Handling.

Worst Features

Update the dash for more ergonomics. Update the seats for a bit less initial lumbar bolster. Put a transmission in it that matches the brute strength of the Cummins TD engine (can you get a hold of Allison's?)
