2006 Dodge Ram Pickup 3500 SLT 4dr Quad Cab LB DRW (5.7L 8cyl 6M)


I bought this truck to pull a 30' gooseneck horse trailer, about 10,500 pounds. On my first test tow, I could spin the rear wheels in 2nd gear from a rolling start (empty trailer--about 6000 pounds) and accelerate almost like I was unloaded. Have the 6-speed manual transmission. The more weight on the truck, or the steeper the hill, the harder it pulls. Coming home from the dealer (out of state), I was able to leave many "ricers" in my dust accelerating up the hills in TN and NC along the interstate. I have no doubt this truck was the right choice, and that it will serve my family well for the next 10+ years. Dodge finally has a truck that'll (more than) compete with Ford and GM.

Best Features

Jake brake, nav system. Six-speed manual transmission is a must, as the 4 speed auto isn't comparable to offerings from GM and Ford!

Worst Features

A built-in brake controller like the Dr. Performance BrakeSmart control would be awesome!
