I LOVE this truck!
By ruzzeld on


2005 Dodge Ram Pickup 3500 4dr Quad Cab SLT 4WD SB (5.9L 6cyl Turbodiesel 6M)


We have a small farm and use the truck for basic transportation, recreation, long trips and hauling loads.
For a big powerful truck it has great fuel economy (18-19 mpg pulling over 18,000 lbs and regularly over 22mpg empty - the BEST I ever got was 28mpg on a long trip)!
Great resale value.
Relatively comfortable, good visibility, dependable.
I've put over 140,000 miles with only normal maintenance, replacing the serpentine belt, batteries and at around 120k mi, upper and lower ball joints.

Best Features

Dependability, versatility, looks, power, economy - a one ton 4x4 that gets over 20mpg... why can't everybody make a truck like this?

Worst Features

This is my 3rd Dodge diesel and they all needed front end work eventually. I've never heard of one of these that didn't need the front end rebuilt at around 80-120k miles.
