2014 Ram 1500 EcoDiesel: Comfortable Junk Hauler

February 17, 2015

2014 Ram 1500 EcoDiesel

After a round of home improvement projects over the last couple of months, I had a side yard full of wood scraps and other junk to get rid of. Despite not having a protective bed liner, our Ram 1500 handled the task with ease, and without a scratch.

With the smaller bed size, you can't throw stuff in as randomly as you can with an eight-foot bed. There was still plenty of room though and I probably could have fit even more if I needed to.

There wasn't enough extra weight to notice a change in ride quality, but this Ram feels perfectly comfortable when it's empty anyway. I think our new F-150 is a close second in that department even with its leaf spring rear suspension. It's also worth noting that with over 25,000 miles on the odometer, our Ram still feels as tight as ever.
