2003 Dodge Ram Pickup 3500 4dr Quad Cab SLT 4WD SB (5.9L 6cyl Turbodiesel 5M)


Mine has the HO 305/555 motor, and the
6 speed manual transmission. I bought
it to tow a car hauler with a Jeep on
it (around 6000 pounds). Towing is a
dream, just put it in 6th gear and set
the cruise control. Steep hills are
not a problem, the engine has tons of
power. My drivers side door had
excessive wind noise and had to be
adjusted, but other than that it has
been problem free.

Best Features

The engine and transmission are unbeatable. The quad cab fits four adults comfortably, but the truck is short enough to be able to turn and park easily. The optional folding cargo shelf under the rear seat is an abloute necessity!

Worst Features

The front seats are too hard for my taste. I have the premium cloth (hate leather), and the seats seem uncomfortable on long trips. Maybe they just need to be broken in. I would like to see fender flares, mudflaps, and wheel-well liners included on the truck too.
