I have a every expanding mowing business that I do on the side and was looking for an inexpensive pickup. I found this Arizona owned truck with two wheel drive and it was priced to sell by private seller so I grabbed it up. The truck has the 4.7 V8 that does pretty well pulling around my enclosed mowing trailer with equipment in it. It does great around town mowing 40 yards a week. I get about 11mpg pulling the trailer in stop and start non stop while mowing. My only gripe is I wish it had the Hemi in it. I think it would pull the trailer better at highway speeds. It does pull it down the highway ok but I just feel like it could use the extra HP. If it is a windy day I feel like I am giving it some throttle to keep it at 60. Overall the truck for being 12 years old has minimal issues 125,000 miles. AC works great very comfortable interior. Only issue is the CD player stopped working but did not break my heart as my new laptop does not even have a CD accessory anymore to make CD's. I am impressed with how the door handles hold up on the truck. Which may sound stupid but other work vehicles I have used to mow door handles were always falling apart. For a work truck, I am honestly scared to upgrade because this thing has been so good to me. I rated the MPG low but I use this nearly all of the time pulling a trailer so hard to judge.

I've had this truck for many years and have used it in deep snow, sand, and mud and nothing has stopped it. Mine is RWD only and it was pulling 4x4s out of sand and ditches no problem. My only complaints are the cheap looking interior and the bad mpg. Unless you need it as a daily driver for a long commute I'd definitely pick this any day. It's better looking than many other tucks in its time but is no slouch. Good for towing and hauling. Throw a dual exhaust on it and it sounds beautiful.

if you cant dodge it, ram it

Bought new in 04 ,they put a new battery in before I signed papers because it was dead,and still to this day 78,500 miles later it's has the same battery. Now I live 3 miles from work and I do go out of state one or two times a year not a single major mechanical problem other than normal brake pads,shocks,1 tune up,it's not the smoothest ride(it has 20''wheels)Its a truck not a car!Doesn't leak,All it takes is miner Maintenance.

Trucks are not just for guys. We girls drive them too. I bought my Ram used with 53,000mi and have over 183.000 on it and still going. As a nurse I depend on my Ram in bad weather to get me to and from work because we don't get snow days. As a horse owner I trust my Ram to pull my horses safely to where ever I am going. Compared to my parents Sierra, I don't even know I have a horse trailer behind me with the Ram. With the Sierra it moans and groans. On the farm I use it to haul seed during planting season, firewood when cutting up trees and whatever else comes along. With wear and tear I have had to replace things. But when I buy again it will be a RAM!!!

I had windsheild whiper problems twice where they conect one would pop off one wone would work. the clutch went out at 100k(i dont do burn outs i baby my truck-never pulled huge load) that was liek 1500$$ i love hate it the driver side rear break light works of adn on...tho when i drive the manaul 5spd 4.& V8 with the 30 series flowmsater I sit back and wonder if i coudl ever get Rid of mt truck i love the manuls:) the egine it slef is ok power rusn great i get 20MPG highway if i baby it but uslay 17-18 adn 14-15 city....in all honesty i would say go with a ford MABE chevy.

Seriously... it's a fact. Dodge's DO NOT hold their value compared to, say an F150 or a Sierra, or a Silverado. BUT... This is a good thing because that means you and I can get our hands on a really good, really appealing truck for $1000s less! I've had 3 Dodge's so far, one with a 3.7 V6, one with a 4.7 V8, and one with the 5.7 HEMI V8 (Awesome engine!), and i wished i'd kept all three. Unfortunately i suffer from, "Gotta' have the next thing-itis" and i think it's terminal. All 3 trucks were great, the V6 was really underpowered, the 4.7 was normal, but the HEMI was incredible. Got rid of the HEMI a few months ago and it had 238,000 miles and ran like it had 50k, no lie. I LOVE EM.

i have an o4 dodge with 78k original miles, i just spun a rod bearing and dodge refuses to assist in any way meaning time for a new motor at my cost. i have had more warranty work done in the past than probably any vehicle should have, the had to fix leaking rear end, transmission failure, and replace both exhaust manifolds at the motor. my ball joints are also shot and my transmission is leaking at the yoke. i will never purchase another dodge again and i will recommend the same for anyone i meet. they were completely unhelpful at corporation when it came to warranty assistance.

Very reliable truck. Have had to do only normal maintenance. If you want horsepower and looks this is the truck. If you want a girls truck I would try the F-150. I've had some people try their luck against the Hemi and all they have seen is my bumper as I pull away. What a great feeling. Will always have a Ram.

I love the Dodge style and ride but the 4.7 is a horrible motor. I have replaced 2 on my truck that only has 119,000 miles. After talking to techs at dealerships and looking online I see that Dodge, Jeep, Chrysler have had many problems with this motor. I will never make a purchase of any vehicle with this motor again.

Pros: -Great Engine! owned a 94 ram 5.2L, after this the 5.7L was incredible. After 2 yrs of driving and hauling more than I should the engine never even breaks a sweat. A 3/4 engine in a 1/2 ton. Tow/Haul mode is a + -Interior front has plenty of storage and works as it should, back seats have plenty of leg room and the fold out flat cargo "platforms" under the flip up seats are genius. -The quad cab deserves it's own comment because although it's not a true crew cab I'll never go back to not having 4 fully opening doors. Personally, I wouldn't want anything with bigger rear doors. Con: -The rear suspension is lacking when paired with the 5.7L (I upgraded with air) -No rear limited slip.

The truck is a good truck dependable, nice looking, except it just barely reached 70,000 miles and just was told transmission needs to be rebuilt. Apparently this happens alot with Dodge trucks. The company that told me about the tranny has been in business 37 years and very reputable. Don't use truck for really anything than driving to and from work so it's not used often. To have tranny issues already is messed up. Other than that no other issues it's just the 1 issue is major and very expensive. Don't think I would be buying a Dodge again, unless the warranty holds up... checking on that now.

This is an excellent truck. It is everything a truck should be; it's fast, looks great, and is better on gas than some believe. I'm getting at least 18 miles to the gallon. As you may know, the Hemi kicks in after 35mph,saving in some gas, not a lot, but savings is savings. Older model but it is a great vehicle. Great truck!

I never thought I'd drive a truck but bought the SLT 5.7L HEMI after renting one to tow motorcycles. I absolutely love it! It's so incredibly comfortable inside, and you feel like king of the road when you drive it. I have NEVER had mechanical problems with my truck. It has been very dependable and I always enjoy driving it. Yes, the engine's loud - don't get a HEMI if you don't like it. That's where the power is. No, it doesn't handle bumps well - don't buy a truck if you don't want it to drive like a truck - just hit them slowly and head on. Fuel efficiency is not impressive - we all know that - take the bus to work. If that's not your objective, this is your truck. Don't miss out

My first dodge since my parents had a aspen. Bought it used with 23,000 now showing 56,000 and have no problems with the truck. I replacing the plugs after 20,000 and found it easy to do. Flushed all fluids and again it not expensive to do. Fit and finish is fine for a truck. Seats a little flat but do work and easy to keep clean. Plastic hard but easy to clean. Not a perfect truck but those thinking none American companies can do better they can not. Owned a toy and a kia and traded them for Ford and Dodge. Read owners manual and keep up on the maintenance and found that these truck are pretty good. Now thinking of replacing the Ford with a Charger. Most reviews are good.

Bought my '04 Hemi w/25000 miles on it. The previous owner babied it. Now I have approximately 78500 miles on it and have only had to replace the front rotors. Excellent power althought new models have more. It pulls my trailer with no problem. This year I installed a Cherry Bomb Pro muffler to add a little "growl" to the motor. I kept the single factory pipe which comes out of the sidge behind the right rear wheel. Most people that I run into thinks that it sounds better than their own more expensive Flowmaster and Magnaflow dual exhaust set ups.

Purchased in May 09, only 7100 miles when I bought it. Has 12,000 on it now. Added a Volant CAI which increased highway from 16 mpg to nearly 19.2 mpg and City 9 mpg to 11 mpg if I drive 5 miles over the limit. The CAI increased horsepower from 500 to 522 horsepower. I do punch it at times and it responds well and the sound is AWESOME! The truck has 22" rims, put Hancooks on and handle very well, even in wet weather. The Perelli's did not grip well in wet weather and set of 4 Hancooks cost under $1000. Purchased Altezza tail lights, billet grill for looks. Added a Pioneer DVD GPS system. Overall, great truck!!

I bought the vehicle with 14000 miles on it. I was stationed at Camp Lejeune, NC, and I took it home to Atlanta every holiday I could. I beat the crap out of this truck, in the mud, WOT almost everywhere I went, music up all the way, in the mud, on the drag...er...highway, I was ROUGH on this thing. I had very few problems. The speaker on the driver door stopped working (probably my fault), and the tranny is starting to hesitate right after startup, but that goes away in 30 sec. All in all, this truck has treated me very well. It's never left me stuck, and though I still tromp on it (especially after adding CAI and exhaust) it is still very much alive and kicking after 114,000 miles.

The Lone Star Package is great. This is the 1st HEMI I have owned in a truck, and let me say WOW. That is some power, off the line and on the highway, you will not be disappointed. I have had no problems in the past 3 years, and with the great deal am not upside down on my loan :~). Just wish it had a sun roof. For RAW power and decent mpg, its well worth the money. This truck can get almost 18MPG highway, or down to 9mpg if you have a lead foot and love speed. The bottom line is the power is there when you need it!

I bought the 3.7L Dodge well over a year ago and I couldn't be happier with it. It has a lot of pep on stock motor. I added JBA headers, high flow cats, true dual flowmaster mufflers, K&N cold air intake, and a JET computer chip. The power, MPGs, and torque that it added was unreal! There is no way I will ever sell this truck. If you are looking at buying one, SERIOUSLY seriously consider buying this truck! You wont be disappointed, even with all stock parts, I promise.

What awesome Hemi power. Blows away most other cars and trucks. Bought used at 5000 miles and added cruise and power locks. Just drove 3000 miles in rain, snow and sleet including mountain driving and freeways. Averaged 16.5 mpg at 75 to 80 mph and a big load in the bed. Love this truck! No repairs, only oil changes since purchase.

I bought this 04 Dodge Hemi in April of 2007. It's a sweet truck. It's got everything but a sunroof. This truck is very fun to drive except on really wet roads with some standing water. The 20" tires seem to hydroplane too much. (but yes I do love the way they look) On snowy roads they seem to do the same thing. I never felt like I had good traction in the winter. My 95 Dakota felt more stable. The gas mileage isn't very good around town 11/12.2 is the best I've seen. Freeway is OK but I never broke 16, until I got a K&N (just the pop in filter). The cold air intake is to loud. After I put the filter in,after about 300 miles I would get high 16s and 17s on trips if I drove around 75mph.

This old boy as 53,000 miles on it. This as been a great truck so far. Most of these miles have been highway, it's the family vacation truck. Wife doesn't know how to pack. I have no problems out of this truck. The gas cap went bad with 500 miles on it and the dearler replaced. At 30,000 miles did the service at a local shop not Dodge paid about 500 or so for it. When gas prices got high we used my wife's car for vacation this fellow only gets 15.5 miles per gallon on highway at 80 mph. People can't beleive it's an 04. It rides good and looks good with the 20 inch wheels. Had to replace the tire with 30,000 miles on them. There sometimes is a ticking sound from the engine put in Mobil 1 synthetic oil.

No more Dodge, I bought the slt quad cab with the small v8 thinking the gas mileage might be better, mistake. I have a Ford ranger that gets better mileage and for the weight to power ratio way outperforms the slug that Dodge is, lately I have been having trouble with overheating and have replaced every bolt on part associated with the cooling system and still it runs hot, bad gas mileage, underpowered, overheats, Toyota next time

Hemi performance excellent, gas consumption not a concern at time of purchase. At $5 a gallon it is time to be frugal. At $8 use only for fun and necessity. If the eco wackos have tier way I still won't separate from this vehicle. I love to drive it. I feel comfortable, safe, and in charge. It handles as well as any car I have ever owned. I am satisfied and have a goal of at least 200,000 mi.

I bought the SRT 10 to replace my other dodge 5.7 although I had it up to 425 hp. Gas E/mpg is about the same as the Hemi, plus in Chicago you need to be faster just to merge in traffic because no one will let you in but in the SRT they don't have a chance. Stock right now adding an HX40 turbo very soon. Plus nothing beats a Ram. Semper Fi.

I love this truck, just bought it a month ago and have already put 5000 miles on it, it rides great other than the seats that have no lumbar support. It has a gas sipping v-6 which by no means is slow, in fact I have outrun a 5.3 liter Chevy with it... And no one believes me. Oh well! It made a two hour drive to Austin and from there a 12 hour drive to Nashville! Not a problem whatsoever! It has the best air conditioner of any vehicle I have ever owned let alone been inside and this is vehicle number 11 for me! I cant think of much more about this truck because its a base model and didn't come with much, the only problem is during extreme rain it leaks under the dash a bit but I have vinyl floors

I sold my 04 a few months ago, and I miss it dearly. I had warped rotors in 18000km, never again.One bad oxygen sensor. Put 120000km on it, and loved it. Lots of trips in all kinds of weather, and the AWD never missed a beat. Couldn't lite up the back tires to show off, but I'm too old for that s$#^.I pulled 2 ATVs in an enclosed trailer very easily. 18hwy,13city,11-12 towing I'm looking for another Ram now, gotta have the full time transfer case.

Great truck. No problems ever, except the front door seals chewing themselves up (replaced under warranty with the redesigned seal). The way this truck is driven, it may sit unstarted for weeks but then pretty much every time it is used for a property company, it is hauling a full load or towing. Never a hiccup, starts right up, and it gets an unbelievable number of "hey, nice truck" comments even being four years old. At Lowe's they even comment about how they see more Dodges than anything else at the commercial dock.

No power in the 4.7, yet same fuel economy as the 5.7 Hemi? Other than the small "jeep" engine wearing prematurely, the transmission is my only concern- shifts are insecure and I know my tranny will be the first thing to go. Though, very comfortable truck, love the way it handles and drives! I'm considering a Cummins diesel version...

Great truck, fun to drive, handles very well for a big truck. Brakes are great, engine preformace is unbelievable for such a large vehicle. In the last three years of ownership the only problem I have had was a leaking left front shock. That was replaced under warranty. On the hiway traveling at 120 KH the truck scoots along. But still gets about 24 mpg.

This is the first vehicle that I have ever been involved with for this long and I have had absolutely zero defects whatsoever. Truly amazing. The only fault I can find with with this truck is the gas mileage, but given the power and torque it has, I guess I shouldn't complain about that. I did'nt buy it going in with the expectation of great gas mileage.

Great truck

This is my 6th Dodge and was very aggrivated with all the problems. Water pump failed leaving me stuck out of state for 3 days, steering wheel wobble, steering wheel radio controls fell off all at around 14,000 miles. Since then I have not had any problems and am approaching 60K .I need a truck and at the time Dodge seemed the best of the bunch but am not sure if I would purchase a Dodge again especially with the poor warranty. I'm stuck with this truck due to the poor resale value so hopefully I won't have any more problems and hope to get a 150K out of it. This truck is still better than the Ford and Chevy I had.

Dodge is awesome. I mean, what other truck has a 505 cu. in. V10 with 500 horsepower? None. The performance is amazing. The interior is luxurious and roomy. It is built extremely well. Rims are awesome, resembling the 2003 Viper. This truck is one of a kind. The gas mileage is horrible, but come on, it's got 500 horsepower and everyone will respect you when they see that "Viper Powered" logo on the hood when you pull up. Dodge Power!

Bought the truck with the 5.7L Hemi and gas mileage is great. Getting between 18.5 and 19.9 miles per gallon highway driving between 60-65 mph. Climb any hill with ease and power to spare. With 55000 miles on the original tires I still have substantial tread wear remaining on the original tires, never had a vehicle with this attribute including Toyotas and Ford pickup trucks

Without the Cummins engine this truck would be plastic on wheels. The transmissions have always been and will always be a problem for Dodge. The interior lacks the comfort of Ford, however the exterior looks tough. The truck also rides like a truck, be prepared for back problems.

I bought my hemi quad cab with 28000 miles and the only problem I have had was a bad O2 sensor in the cat. But all sensors go sooner or later. I had a Ford explorer 4x4 with traction controll which handled well in the snow. The ram surprisingly handled better without adding extra weight to the bed.

Hey there truck buyer! Let me tell you I love my Dodge.Why? One word, Hemi! Wanted a standard cab, a short bed, a 4x4, a Hemi, didnt care about all the frills just the thrills! Who cares about gas mileage when you love to hammer down. I don't really have to drive far to go to work but I sure do like driving to work more than I used to.Only 22000 miles put on by the first owner he also added duel exhaust and flowmaster. Truck is like new. I traded in a 1999 ford f150 5.4 liter that was a real clean truck but the 5.4 cant hold a candle to this Hemi. I heard a 5.3 cDhevy getting down on it the other day, he sounded good but was going nowhere fast. Anyway it drives like a car, rides good, even though its 4x4

I have a blue 1500 SLT sport 4x4 loaded with tow package. Bought used and since I off-road am not crazy about the 20 in dubs. Will switch to 17's later. 3rd truck I've owned and definitely the funnest. The Hemi has oh my God type horsepower. Same gas mileage I was getting with a Dodge V- 6. After going to a full size, I am never going back. Cruises smooth, and the Hemi is extremely tempting to get happy with. Mileage 13-14 mpg.

Overall, very dissatisfied with the engineering of this truck. The front doors rub and cut the weatherstrip off. Wind noise is worst in class. Rattles and squeeks like it has 10 times the mileage it has. The differential had to be replaced at 15k, and requires fluid changes every 15k otherwise. Seat motor burned up early. CD player ate a disk and required the Fonzerello treatment (that's a hard smack in the mouth for those of you who don't remember Happy Days). If anyone owns one, take a look behind the mud flaps on the front wheels, the paint will be worn completly off. The mistake I made in buying this truck was thinking that 35% off sticker price was a good deal.

Only downfall I have is front end suspension squeaks and squawk at slow speeds, in the shop for part replacement several times, no remedy yet. Heard alot about the Hemi glad I stayed with the Magnum. Had to have the door seals replaced, tearing apart near front window and front quarter panel trim. Overall pleased on how it handles and style.

Well so far so good, I really wanted a Ford F150 in the same year, but after driving both and looking at each they were about even (except the Dodge looks more manly man) Now I will say the Ford seem to have more get up and go off the start (I only have the V8 Mag and not the HEMI) but seems smoother all in all. Now, I have 21inch rims on mine now (bad choice if you want a non bumpy ride) but the ride is not as bumpy as my buddies Ford with the same rims and tires. Interior has space and room, I have the front bench seat so six total fit in mine.

This truck is not for any beginner driver. It will tear up the asphalt quicker than you can shift the gears. The steering takes some getting used to. It is very tight, and will go where you move it. The brake dust is a bummer on it. They work like a charm, but if you like a clean look, expect to have some towels to wipe them down when you stop. The black is very hard to keep clean. It looks nice, but it is high maintenance. Get a red or silver if you can. Wear your seat belt in this thing. It will throw you all over the cab if you don't. The gas mileage is not bad for a truck. I have gotten as little as 4, and as good as 17. I had a lead foot the first tank.

After owning chevy trucks the last 11 years,this is my first Dodge,and i love it! The handling and suspension is excellent! The 5.7 Hemi is great! This is the best handling truck I have ever driven in snow! I only have had this truck for 15 months, and have 19000 miles, so far no problems. I have owned 3 s-10's(1995,1999,2002)and a 2001 chevy silverado, these vehicles have been very unreliable, after the 3 year 36000 mile warranty expired, repairs were needed. I will find out in 1 or 2 years if the Ram is more reliable than the Chevys! The radio is better than the Chevys, a lot better! This truck is the biggest, baddest, and fastest truck available. This is the best truck available!

I traded a Ford F-150 for this truck. Mechanically, I have no issues with this truck. Comfort is another issue. Ride quality is extremely stiif. I know this is a truck, but the Ford is far more forgiving. Wind noise from the ill- fitting doors is unreal. I can slip my fingers in the gap between the windshield and the door. Evan after adding additional rubber to the gap the noise is still annoying. Fuel mileage is poor as well. Maybe it's just me, but 12.5 on the small V-8 could be improved.

The hemi gives good gas mileage at 65/70 highway-but-drops in city driving to 12/13. ride is excellent and room for 6 passengers except for the shift to 4 wheel drive the person in the front seat does not have much room. OK, for short distances but overall comfortable and a good drive/work/towing truck would highly recomend a test drive and purchase.

I love this truck. I wish it was a little lower and the subwoofer had a little more thump. I get 15.7 mpg between city and highway. I got 16.7 mpg on the road before I did two modifications to the truck. What truck do you know that they give you mileage figures of 9mpg and 11 mpg, and I got much more then that. I had two new Chevys, and they were both wrong. I got much less then what they told me they would get. I get between 18mpg and 21 mpg on the road with the two modifications that I did. This is a 10 cylinder with 500 horses. I love the torque. It looks great.

No real complaints, bought it to use as a light duty truck and in that respect it works flawlessly. A bit unhappy with Dodge's claims about the gas mileage, I see nowhere near 21 on the highway, more like 14-15, but I did not buy it solely for the gas mileage.

I've found my Dodge truck to be both fun and tough. It went through being rear ended at 20+ mph with only minor damage and no occupant injuries. It does pretty well on mpg with averages of over 20 mpg on the highway. I drove it through a huricane in SC through headlight deep water and high winds with no problems at all. It handles well and with the hemi engine has plenty of power and performance. I am very pleased with this truck.

Everything I could ever want in a truck, and more. After hauling 3 things 4 miles in 2 months, and dropping twice as much on gas, I came to the frightening realization that I had made a mistake. I don't NEED a truck. Unfortunately, neither does anyone else, so I'm stuck and more upside down than a cake. Don't get me wrong, the truck is hot and fun (in a straight line), but I feel trapped.

I've had this truck for 8 months, and I've enjoyed her. I've added a CD player and subwoofer, having a camper top (bought her with it) helped when moving home at end of college year. I'm a big guy (6'2") and I fit perfectly in the driver seat, the white faced gauges are easy to see/read. The lack of shelving behind the seats were a dissappointment, so i built some of my own. The 4.7L at times seems underpowered but gets the job done satisfactorally. All and all, she is a great truck.

So far, the Hemi has been good, but in retrospect, I would either have elected to go with the 3.92 axle instead of the 3.55 (just trying to squeeze as much MPG as possible and based on $2.09/gallon, who could blame me?) for around town driving and towing or simply employ the 4.7L verus the Hemi I purchased. The Infinity Sound System Volume Limit and basic speakers were a dissappointment. The ride is quite comfortable, the straight-forward cabin layout is obviously German influenced and for the BETTER I say. I wish they would take another 3 inches out of the bed and add them to the rear cabin. All in all, a good value for $3k less than Ford or Chevy. Think about it.

I struggled with this purchase. I owned a trouble free Toyota for years and wanted a bigger truck. I heard the horror stories about certain Dodges. After asking my mechanic and others I went for a test drive. This has been a great vehicle - dependable, comfortable, fun, very nice. I recommend it highly. It has plenty of power, great comfort and good quality. It is a beast in the snow - no problem at all. It is well built and sharp looking too.

Is there anything else, other than Dodge?

If your looking for a great all-a-round truck, can't beat the Dodge. Interior very roomy with plenty of storage. Have 4 kids, so I need lots of room. I've got the Hemi. It does get a little thirsty, but when you hit the pedal it takes off, even at 75(+). Have 35k miles in just 1yr with no problems. I will have to say it does have a vibration a little when I'm turning to the right after a stop. Feel it in the right front brake. I use Amsoil series 3000 synthetic motor oil. Great oil with less break down, which means less oil changes. Truck has plenty of torque for towing. Hate to get rid of this truck but have to go to the Dodge 3/4 with Cummins. Need the mileage since I drive over 35K(+) a year.

Excellent

The Hemi engine is awesome!!! I traded in my 2001 silverdo 1500 ext cab 5.3 v8 for the Hemi, best decision I ever made. This is my first Dodge,and I love it. I was a Chevy owner for 11 years before the switch to Dodge, and look forward to owning many more Dodge's

The power of the Hemi is great! Unfortunately you pay in fuel economy. The interior of the dodge Ram trucks are very boring with controls and features straight out of an 80's model vehicle. It's time Dodge gave us a few toys to play with inside the vehicle.

I purchased the truck with the intent of having an all around vehicle, but shortly after had to move 1300 miles. I bought a 32 foot enclosed trailer and made 5 trips from CT to FL in the span of two months towing cars, furniture and thousands of pounds of tools and equipment. The truck operated flawlessly. I wish I could say as much about the trailer! The only upgrade I made to it was installing a set of air bags for the rear suspention, worth every penny.

Got what I paid for and then some

Strong truck (have carried literally a ton of material when doing a major home renovation), 4.7 V8 is plenty powerful for me. Towed the biggest trailer U-Haul has with ease. Handles and brakes surprisingly well, especially given size - it's even nimble. For example, somebody cut me off hard on the interstate one day and I was able to brake/swerve to avoid an accident with little difficulty. Very pleased with the vehicle. Very drivable vehicle.

This is my third Dodge, truck, 2nd fullsize. I really love this truck and the quality has improved every year. The interior is solid a quiet, all controls are easy to operate and don't feel cheesy. The paint and body are excellent. The engine is the HEMI need I say more? Of course the fuel milage is poor, but I knew that when I decided to purchase this truck. And this is a truck, make no mistake about it. Itis big, commanding and will haul anything I have put in the bed or hook to the trailer hitch. The only real down side I have found are poor rear wheel traction on wet surfaces (again it is the hemi) and I don't like the front end being so low on the 2x4 model. Level it out some Dodge.

I love my SRT-10

Very nice interior storage, especailly under middle seat in front, and under rear seats. Excellent turning and handling, but ride is much rougher than the 1996 Chevy CK1500 I drove for 115K miles. Delivered with non functioning horn that drained the battery and required a tow at 300 miles. Dashboard GPS is basically worthless and non intuitive, you'd be much better off buying the Garmin portable GPS unit. Heated seats work great.

This is the smoothest riding truck that I have ever owned. It drives great. This is one of the best trucks. I was always a chevrolet man, my last truck that I just traded in on my new dodge ram was a silverado swb. This new truck is awesome to say the least. I wish I had switched to dodge sooner but better late than never. I love my new truck. I hadn't had it three hours when going out to my brothers house in the country, a deer ran into the driver door, so now I've got to put it in the shop to get my door fixed. But it still looks great with a dent in the door.

I have been GM most of my life but the Ram is the most comfortable truck for (6'2"-240lbs)me. The Ram offers excellent access to engine compartment and components like cleaning radiator and condenser. All wiring is neatly routed and enclosed in plastic conduit. Excelent visibility.

I've owned this truck for 5 months now and love it. Previously owned a 1998 Ford F-150 4x4 which had more features than the Dodge but the Ram has much more power and towing capabilities and looks better. The Dodge cab is also bigger than the Ford cab. Obviously if you buy a full-size truck the gas mileage is going to suffer. I average 13.9 miles a gallon between the highway and around town.

We purchased a new 2004 Doge Ram Quad Cab 4x4 in Sept. of this year. With 400 kilometers on the truck, my husband headed off from Ontario Canada to Texas to pick up our son. On the way back in Arkansas (Fort Smith) a wheel fell off the truck. The axle, bearing, etc. was all destroyed. The truck at this time had 3400 kilometers on it. We had it repaired and my husband came back home with no problems. We have written to Chrysler (weeks ago) and have heard nothing. I guess they feel that this type of extreme failure is not worth their attention. We have bought Chrysler products for the last 30 years and we will NEVER, EVER, buy another one.

I bought one in July of 2004. SLT w' Hemi/3.55 axle in hopes of getting adequate gas mileage. I expected it to burn fuel in Atlanta traffic, devour comes to mind..in town w/5 spd auto and easy on the pedal? 11- 13mpg. As far as power? Truthfully, I don't "feel" 345 hp worth...I test drove one w/3.92 axle...a bit more torque as expected but not that great...I test drove the regular 8 w/4sp auto..good enough for most, I simply wanted the HD cooling & towing...coupled w hemi, it can do just about anything...to be expected with this Hemi...Overall, extremely satisified, excellent value for the money...better bang for your buck..period and I have owned Chevy's and Fords

Purchased the Ram Quad Cab SLT with the Hemi 5.7 engine, because of reviews I read on the internet. I wasn't disappointed. I pull a 27ft camper trailer that weighs about 7200lbs. The Hemi pulls it with ease and the truck itself feels much more stable pulling than my 2002 ext cab Silverado did. The Hemi is very thirsty, especially when pulling. I averaged about 7.5 mpg while towing.

I will not say that Chevy and Ford trucks stink because they don't.I am honest in saying I owned a Tahoe and hated it. I am on my third Ram. I had a 96 single cab that was an underpowered V6. I did love it though. I owned a 99 5.2L quad cab with a manual transmission. I enjoyed that truck, but I had almost 130000 miles on it. It was time to get a new one. I bought a 2004 Black Quad Cab Sport Edition Hemi 1500. To say it is my favorite of the trucks is an understatement. It has so much base power, over 100 more horses than my last Ram. I will drive this for 200,000 miles. It is smooth as glass with the power of a sports car, and it hauls serious weight.

We almost bought the Nissan Titan but got a much better deal on the Dodge (our has the Hemi, but Edmunds for some reason doesn't list that engine as a choice..???). We got the sport appearance package instead of the chrome, looks much better and alot more menacing. The 20" wheel option looks cool, but it can turn the ride a bit jiggly, so try before you buy. It's my wife's daily driver, but when she's not looking I sneak it out whenever I get the chance ;-)

I drove my '98 Ram Quad Cab more than 200K in the 5 years I had it. So naturally I looked to Dodge for a replacement. I found an '04 Silver Quad Cab Laramie 4X2 Hemi that had my name on it, and drove it home. That was a year and 15K miles ago. this truck drives better than most cars I've had. Sure it's huge and loves to visit gas stations, but I've surprised many a driver of high priced exotics as well as domestic muscle cars with the way the Ram handles the windy roads of SF coast. This truck feels as stable and composed at 90 as it does at 40, and with the Hemi getting to 90 is a very short wait.

I have never been a fan of the Dodge pickups. I remember the uqly burnt orange thing that my brother bought in the mid 1970s, it really turned me off Dodge trucks. Then something happened, they got good looking and really functional. While I was deployed in suppport of Operation Iraqi Freedom I decided if I lived through it I would treat myself to a new Pickup. I looked around and it came down to having to park my but in a truck to make up my mind as I could not get a good read of the internet. Ass soon as i sat in my Dodge 4X4 I knew it was the one. It was taller than any other I had tried, it was peppy off the line and had power to spare in the mid-range.

I've always owned sport cars, I'll never but another car again. All I have to say is Hemi. One problem I am having now is the front brakes are squeeking and I think the front rotors are warped. I've read in a few other instances that people were having this problem too. Of course the warranty on brakes and rotors is up after a year,so I don't know if Dodge will replace them.

After 20 years of loyal Ford ownership, I decieded to take a look at other truck manufacturers because I just didn't like the look of the new regular cab f-150. Decieted on Dodge over GMC/Chevrolet after test driving all three. The interior of the Ram feels much more spacious than the other two, which is good because I'm a big boy (6'3", 280lbs). I also like the agressive exterior looks. The Ram just looks mean. Besides the good looks, what really sold me was the power of the HEMI engine and the way the Ram handles. For such a big truck this thing can is quite nimble and it also has great breaking ability.

Absolutely fell in love with this truck after test driving it. The 5.7L HEMI engine meets and exceeds all of the hype created by the dodge commercials. I was actually in the market for the 4.7L engine, which has more than ample power, but after comparing it to the HEMI found that there was no comparison. What is interesting is that the HEMI produces over 100 more horse power but only loses ~1mpg in fuel efficiency. Besides the engine, another thing that really impresses me about the Ram is the way it handles. I was very surprised at the way such a big truck can move and handle. Overall, everything about this truck has thus far exceeded my expectations

The 2004 Dodge Ram 1500 SLT 4wd is simply the best truck on the market in my opinion. I chose to get the HEMI engine because it simply outperforms the competition. Ford, GMC, and Chevy cannot keep up with my Dodge. I test drove all 4 U.S. Mfg. trucks, and it came down to the Dodge Ram and Ford F- 150. The Ram's HEMI engine simply outperformed the F-150's 5.4L Triton engine. I also liked the Rams exterior appearance much better than the F-150's. The only thing that kept Ford in the running was it's interior features. But in the end, the Ram's features outshined the competition. This is one great truck!

This is by far the best truck that I have ever owned! The truck is very fun to drive, and the hemi engine is amazing. The brakes have excellent stopping power and feel, as they are the biggest in the trucks class. Build quality is great, and the cab is very roomy. Fuel mileage is better than I expected on the highway, and ok around town if you can keep your foot out of it!

I purchased the 2004 HEMI SPORT (quad cab)and it is without a doubt the BADEST LOOKING,DRIVING,and quickest truck on the road today! The styling, the proformance, its presence is awesome!I looked at every truck on the Market before deciding on The Dodge Hemi Sport and determined that there was NO COMPARISON. This truck is the ONE!

This is a "racetruck". I have owned GTO's, Z28's, Porsches and Corvettes and this truck is awesome. Just had the Flowmaster exhaust added with dual outs and chrome tips and it turns heads everytime I show up. Lots of storage, including some concealed, great stereo, etc. Surprising ride and a 4 x 4 feel with the 20" tires that makes this the King of the Big Truck club. Runs on 87 or 89 octane, and is very fast. 7 year/70,000 mile warranty..you gotta try this truck.

The Ram1500 4wd is the the best truck i've ever owned. Been a GMC man most of my life but switched over after driving my cousins 2003 Ram 1500. This truck not only looks better than the competition, it outperforms them too. I went with the 5.7 liter HEMI engine, which simply blows the competition away. This truck is just fun to drive. Like to take it off the road occasionally also. Performs well there too.

I've had this truck for nearly 8 months now and I've had no problems with it. I've got the 5.7L HEMI and the thing performs like a dream. It's 345HP will simply blow away the competition. If you have any choice or way, get the HEMI. The extra 100 or so horse power over the 4.7L make the extra grand or so you pay for it so worth it. Plus the there is not much of a difference in fuel economy between the two. Gotta get the 4x4 also. Its fun and relaxing finding a muddy hole on the side of the road and doing some doughnuts. The chicks love this truck.

This Ram 4WD is one fun piece of machinery. I've got the off-road group with the HEMI and the thing has exceeded my expectations with its off- road performance. Its been able to keep up with a friend's Jeep Cherokee (with a 3" lift and some fat tires) in some muddy spots. It performs well on the road as well. Love feeling that 345 horse power under my right foot. My only complaint is that the thing loves the gas as just as much as I love the beer. But I guess I knew that before I bought the thing. Still a great buy and I'd recommend it to anyone who wants a bad-ass truck.

Being an analyst, I did a lot of research before purchasing a vehcile. The Ram ended up being the best choice. There is one drawback of this vechicle, your face will hurt for a while. If you are looking for a vehcile that will put a smile on your face, this is the one. I bought the Laramie with the 20 inch wheels and GPS system. I am surprised how high the vehicle is considering it's not a 4X4. The GPS system is nice, but I am not overly impressed with the Infinity system. For a factory system it's not bad, but I thought it might be a bit better. Also, you will be tempted to spend a lot on mods!

This is the first full-size truck I have had with a V6. I don't tow or haul heavy loads so the 215hp is more than enough. I have a gibson cat-back and CAI. There's a couple of companies developing headers and when I add them I should be close to the 4.7L HP with a little better gas mileage.

I've found that the laramie addition with the 5.7 V8 has more power and better acceleration than any vehicle i've ever owned. The power in limitless when you are behind the wheel. The styling is superior when compared to competitors such as the Chevy Silverado SS edition and the horsepower is the highest in it's class which is only matched by the Chevy Silverado SS.

It has some fantastic torque and is so comfortable its amazing. Awesome stereo,navigational system, 500hp viper motor. It doesnt get any better than this.

I fell in love with this truck at first, but after 5 trips to the dealership for repairs I fell out of love quit quickly. Repairs incuded the IAC (idle air control) module (took 20 days to fix), speaker that had the wires crossed from the factory, tailgate missing a connecting part, and buttons that fell off of the steering wheel. Other then that I like the truck but am constantly waiting for the next thing to go wrong.

This has been the worst vehilcle I have ever owned.The engine hesitates at 50 mph, the ride is so harsh you feel like your riding on a turnip truck, and every day there are more squeeks, rattles,and vibrations. I have owned both Ford and GM trucks and never had a vehicle with such poor ride and performance. I have taken the vehicle to the dealership 4 times since I purchased it. The only result is that the engine hesitation/slugishness is a little better. I have purchased a Dodge vehicle for the first, last, and only time.

Dodge has produced a fine truck (My truck being a 2004 Dodge Ram 1500 SXT, 5.7L HEMI, Regular Cab). The HEMI engine gives the driver power and speed. It's great for the person who loves trucks and the sporty feel of vehicles. The actions and performance of the new HEMI makes the driver feel more alive! It has good pulling/howling power, but I bought my HEMI as a "Sports Truck," meaning it's a sports car gone to a truck form. My Rating: 10/10 (Only problem, if you take it as one... all right on gas, but can be a little better. Listed, CITY MPG: 14, HIGHWAY MPG: 18. $40+ to fill it up from empty)

A great truck, an excellent pick for my first truck since moving to America. An excellent engine and gas mileage that is expectable for a truck of this size and performance. I purchased the Laramie and had the 20" wheels put on the extra money was well worth it. Fun to drive as well using for the everyday runs. Interior build quality is the only negative but still better than the very cheap feeling F150 I test drove first of all.

At delivery ran well. Recalled at 685 miles. PROM reflashed, now down on power. Dyno tested, power down. 2 dealers & Factory Rep drive and tell me that its OK. 7 years = 7 new vehicles, never treated this bad. Dyno tested, DC will not recognize Dyno sheet, they do not have the correct equipment to do their own test. Factory won't do anything. Frustrated. Documenting as I go and writing a letter to CEO of DaimlerChrysler, I am trying to pursue all reasonable remedies. Wife says she really likes the Chrysler Crossfire, but what about customer service. Looking at S55 Mercedes and was close. The way I have been treated it might be an M series BMW.

This is a great truck. It is not a Nissan Titan, but the Nissan was not available in a single cab with a eight foot bed either. The Fords, in my oppinion have inconsistent build quality, no option for side airbags (though Ford designed them in, the feedback in customer clinics caused Ford to nix them), and the lack of a single cab model with full equipment. The GM designs are old, the Toyota was old and only offered a stripped down model for single cabs.

I OWN A HEMI QUAD. GREAT STRONG TRUCK WITH POWER TO BURN. UNFORTUNATLEY THE FUEL ECONOMY IS POOR. IF I WERE TO BUY AGAIN, I WOULD CONSIDER THE DIESEL. OWNERS BEWARE OF DRIVERS FRONT DOOR MOLDING WHICH CHAFES AGAINST LOWER A- PILLAR DOOR EDGE, CAUSING THE MOLDING TO RIP AFTER 3 MONTHS. REAR DOORS OFFER EXCELLENT ACCESS INTO CAB. 20 INCH WHEELS ARE CLAD, PLASTIC BONDED TO ALUMINUM. PRETTY CHEESY FOR A $30K PLUS TRUCK! RADIO W/CD HAS FAIR SOUND QUALITY.

When I first drove the 2004 Dodge SLT w/ the 5.7 I was shocked by the ride & power. My wifes loaded suv w/ the air ride didn't ride this good. The power is there if you need it. It has enough room for a family. To exterior sold me...the truck is just beautiful. Interior great...can't complain. Not the best on gas...but I would still buy it even if regular was 2.50 a gallon....

This is an awesome ride for a performance oriented driver. The power, suspension, appearance, and sound system are combined in a great package. This is a specialty truck, not well suited for towing or carrying large loads. It is a ton of fun as a street cruiser. The super acceleration and highway cruising is the most fun you can have with your clothes on.

Both and excellent exprience to drive and buy. Everything has been great since I walked in the Archer dealership. After test driving the F150 Dodge and the Toyota Tundra, I opted for the Dodge. The Dodge easily beat both on power and ride although the Toyota did offer better build quality but came with a very large price difference as well.

I bought the Laramie quad cab 4x4 after pricing and testing the competition. The bottom line is that for the same price as a mid-range F150 you can buy a top of the line Ram 1500. This is no comprimise either - the HEMI and 5- speed automatic provide outstanding performance with imperceptible shifting. The handling and maneuverablity are quite good - the truck "feels" smaller than it is. This truck is well thought out without going overboard on gadgets. My actual mileage is as advertised 18/13 and I live in hilly country. Wish I bought: heated seats for $130.

Our family of five traded in a Dodge Caravan for our new 2004 truck. This vehicle has more leg room, seating, and storage than our van. I never knew. Our truck is Patriot Blue and we are a military family. That lead the way for a full patriotic customization job which we've done. This vehicle is fun, tough, and comfortable. Yes, I would change some things but not much. We love our truck. It's actually my wifes...she makes sure everyone knows it too.

The 1500 quad cab has all the creature comforts one could ask for in a truck (the Laramie offroad package). Although gas mileage lacks (mine gets about 13- 14 mpg in town) it is a great ride over distances and passing acceleration is nothing short of awesome (from 75 to over a 100 in a heartbeat). Having added a Rhino liner, a clear bra and a hard tonneau cover this is one good looking ride and it does get noticed.

Best vehicle I have driven for overall comfort and versatility. The ride compares to many luxury vehicles. The 4.7L could use more power on steep uphill grades. High frontal and side winds cause some steering issues, but not enough to be a safety issue. Fuel economy needs to be addressed.

There is more room and a bigger engine plus lots of bells and whistles at thousands less than the other two. And now after a few months of ownership I beleive this is the most thoughtful vehicle I have ever owned. This is a great truck!

I've had this vehicle for about a month now and the only complaint I have is the fuel economy. So far I'm only getting about 10.8MPG but that's probably because I only drive it 10 city miles a day (880 miles total as of today). I added a FlowMaster exhaust and now it really sounds like a HEMI!! I took a look at Nissan and Ford and they definitely ride smoother (especially the new F150). What sold me on the RAM was it's classic look (not boxy) and the fact that you get a 6 ft bed. No need for an extender when hauling my other favorite vehicle (Mountain Bike).

Very nice truck, just towed a relative's Taurus 250 miles & truck didn't even break a sweat (mine has the 4.7L engine). Well made vehicle, Infinity audio system is excellent. Power is good with the base 4.7, gas mileage is ok too considering this is a full size truck. Truck has the optional Goodyear 265/70x17's Wrangler SR/A's, much better ride than the standard Michelins. 20" wheels look good but give the truck a buckboard ride on the first truck I demo drove at the dealer.

I love the performance of the truck - who wouldn't!! The stereo system is extremely impressive for a "stock" radio. Handling is exceptional. Suspension and ride are very stiff - both because it is a truck and it is a sports car. Ride is stiffer than standard Ram 1500. Vehicle is extremely fun to drive - I look forward to having to drive somewhere!! $45k is a bit for a truck, but hey it is a steal of a deal for what you are getting - a Viper that is actually easy to get in and out of!!

I've owned my Dodge 4x4 truck for over a year now and really enjoy it. It's all Black with 20" wheels. People always take a second glance while i'm driving. I've added a 3" performance exhaust and fresh air intake, and ordered a throttle body spacer and a Jet Chip for more performance and mileage.

i am extremely satisfied with my Dodge RAM...the other trucks out there pale in comparison...My RAM is reliable and dependable. I drove a Colt before i got me my first Dodge RAM now i refuse to buy anything else! My first Dodge had to be retired after of course saving my life in the only major accident i have had...that is why i won't buy anything else! My RAM was a lifesaver!

The ride of this truck is like no other, quiet, smooth, powerful and most of all comfortable. The room that it provides for our two boys and all their sports equipment is more than adequate. The fact that my wife felt comfortable behind the wheel and the car like ride was a big factor in our purchase.

The few months that I've had this vehicle I've found that it's perfomance, driveability and it's appearance/style is the best in it's class. Ford and Chevy don't come close. I noticed immediately the cabin space difference between the Chevy Silverado, which I owned, and the cabin space alone in my Dodge Ram, huge difference. I am glad I made this purchase and I am completely satisfied, overall. The style and the big rig look is what really won me over. Thanks.

I owned a 94 Ram, and regretted the day I traded it in. When Dodge came out with the Quad Cab, and then added the Hemi, I was hooked. This truck is awsome. I have it loaded with Larime and Sport Package, 20 in wheels & fat tires, plus GPS. It is a joy to drive, and I am getting over 14 miles per gallon around town, and close to 20 on the highway. I did swap out the air filter for a K&N, and saw an immeidate improvement in milage. Next is the exhaust.

Too new to comment about gas mileage, but after trading in my '99 GMC Suburban w/ 454 motor (9 mpg)...anything will be a pleasant change. It handles like a sports car and rides like a dream.

I bought a brand new Dodge Ram Quad Cab in August 2003. It had the 4.7 in it, which was fine for what I was using it for. But I test drove a Hemi in February of 2004 and fell in love with it. It feels much tighter all the way around. Needless to say, I traded in the 4.7 to get the 5.7. If you are debating whether or not to get the Hemi...GO FOR IT! It is well worth the extra $895.

a great truck.. only 2 drawbacks to onsider.. rear spoiler permanently fixed across top of bed. dont plan on any freezers going in the back. (not that this particular vehicle is meant for hauling... its purely bling-bling) The other is the gas mileage. 5mpg city 9 hwy. at least thats what mine gets... but thats not bad for a 10 cylinder viper engine.. and a full sized pickup... I love mine.. glad I bought it.. wouldnt dream of gettin rid of it... Drive Safe...

I've wanted one of these for years. I got a good deal at the end of the year. The dealership added on a bunch of extras that made the truck beautiful and more functional (chrome steps and cargo bars, burled wood interior, etc.) This turned out to be a mixed blessing. The dealership contracted with a vendor to install a powered rear slider window in the cab. The window has been repaired twice and the dealership has had to change vendors to get the problem corrected. The lesson: Be wary of after market add- on's. Some may give you more grief than pleasure.

Awesome truck. I've owned a Dodge since 97'. Seems every 3 years I'd get an upgrade. I honestly can't see Chrysler making many more improvements on the Ram 1500. My brother bought a 4.7L and I drove it around a little. At the same time, Iowned a 2001 5.9L. When I compared them both to the 5.7L HEMI... I was simply amazed. DO NOT... I REPEAT... DO NOT buy a Ram without the 5.7L HEMI. It's just not the same. (Example: My wife owns a 2003 Honda S2000. We raced... I didn't pass her but she never gained a foot on me for about 2 blocks).

The Dodge Ram Quad Short Bed is the worst riding vehicle that I have ever owned. If you do alot of freeway driving than you will hate this vehicle. You feel every little bump in the road. When driving on a concreat sectioned freeway, the truck will bounce, thrash, and shake at every joint section. If you have a drink in the cup holder it will be all over the cab. The seats are nice but I have not been able to find a comfortable setting.If you go back to the dealer to discuss this, they will tell you that you bought a truck and there is nothing they can do. Good Luck

This is the best looking truck on the market. It took me a few weeks to get used to driving something that large. It drives exceptonally smooth (especially for a 4 wheel drive truck). Mine is a 2002 and the Hemi didn't come out until 2003 so I'll go for that option when I trade for a new one. Many people tell me that's a NICE truck.

We love how roomy the interior is; We eat our food on the huge arm between us, like as if it were a table, when we are on the road.

This is a monster truck. Definitely more "truck feel than a Ford". We test drove the new Ford and it resembled a floating car. The engine sounds good, the size is better. We have had references to it as being the "Cadillac" of trucks. We can fit adults in the back seat just as easy as in the front. The sound system is great. This is a purchase we have no regrets about.

My prevous dodge was a 2000 4 door 2 wheel drive. Comfert was everywhere. nice ride , Poor brakes tho had to replace cailpers and rotors at about 30000 miles, traded to the 2004 4 wheel drive quad.. first thing I noticed was the fuel milage..It sucks! cost about 40 bucks to fill once a week, and has a stiff ride. The kids love the 4 full size door and the room in the back. I purched a tonno cover and step bars so I could get in and out of the truck without breaking my neck. Oh and by the way..have you priced 17" tires latley?..Dodge is the only one putting 17s on thier trucks..replacement cost is going to be like 250 to 275 each...wheres my 2000?

MY RAM TRUCK IS EQUIPPED WITH THE 5.7 HEMI MOTOR. IT HAS POWER TO SPARE. AND IT IS VERY FUN TO DRIVE. I LIVE IN NORTH OHIO. WE HAVE HAD A LOT OF SNOW IN THE PAST MONTH. MY TRUCK LAUGHS AT THE SNOW. SINCE I AM OVER 6'AND 260LB IT IS HARD TO FIND A VEHICLE TO FEEL CONFORTABLE IN. THE RAM TRUCK HAS PLENTY OF ROOM AND THEN SOME FOR 6 PEOPLE.

ever since i could remember, i always looked forward to my dad bringing home a new ford truck, every couple years. i too, bought fords in the past, but then decided, i didnt need something so big and the ranger was too small, so i looked at the dakota.after 3 strong years without a single problem, we bought a camper and we started looking at the big trucks again.i just couldnt seepaying the ford price, i looked at the new ram and fell in love! especially for the deal we got. later, after buying our 4 door 4x4 with the hemi, the new ford came out. glad i went with the dodge. the ford is smaller and less powerful and still costs way too much.

Love that hemi

Compared to other trucks I have driven (and I've driven most) this thing handles well and will really move. Style listing is incorrect and not available to choose from. My truck is a SLT short bed with the 5.7 liter Hemi. The Hemi has lots of torque-very smooth power! I have timed it a 6.6 seconds 0- 60. Nice interior design and comfortable. Mileage (after break-in) is up to 17.4 with a bed cover installed. Was 16.5 without. (in both cases the mileage represents a very light foot on the throttle-hard to do with the available power. You could easily get 13-14 if your not careful.

YEAH ITS GOT A HEMI !!

I purchased a 2004 Dodge Ram 1500 RC, HEMI equipped (of course). And I have to say I've had about 15 trucks in my time and this Ram , by far, Out performs all of them in ALL areas!!

Geat vehicle--nicest I've ever owned. Only down side is cargo light switch-- be careful how it is adjusted or it will drain battery. Hemi engine? When you punch it to pass it's like you have a rocket up your behind. Truck handles well, great performance--brakes excelent.. Have driven it in snow-- handles well. I love the shift on the go to 4wd. Goes in and out of 4wd easily--no more hubs to get out and spin. I recommended the vehicle to a friend and he bought one also. I checked out Ford F-150 also, as I've driven Ford trucks for years. No comparison. Ram, hands down.

I am a second time buyer of Dodge pickups. The first was a 1996 Dodge, both have been short boxes. The first I still have, just decided to get another. The first has almost 95,000 miles on it and is still trouble free. This one I fully expect the same of. The styling is great, the motor's performance is fantastic, and the whole truck is a real trip to drive. KUDOS to Dodge, great job!

This is my first full size truck. I was set to buy the new Ford. My family was always a Ford family. I even put off buying my new truck for 8 months until the new Ford came out. But a friend talked me into test driving the Ram and the whole time I told her, that there is no way I would ever own a Dodge. And here I am 5 months later with my Hemi. As soon as the salesmen started it and I heard the Hemi purr, I was in love. The power is unbelievable compared to the new F150 and I wanted a quad cab with a 6+foot bed and the ford quad cab only has a 5 1/2' bed. My family picks on me everyday for buying a Dodge, but in the long run, it is worth it.

Great truck. Hemi engine is very powerful but I only get about 14 MPG using mid grade fuel. I have the SLT modified with leather interior which is a nice upgrade. Ride is a little bouncy but with a Fiberglass topper it rides better. I havent had a chance to try the four wheel drive on the highway yet because the winter has been mild in Minnesota. This is by far, the best looking truck on the road and with the 20 inch wheels I can look down at the H2-Hummer at a stop light. I would recomend this truck to anyone and with the incentives, it's a great buy.

I have the first year of this new design and purchased it in dec 2001. I have not had any problems with this truck. There are 40000 miles on it and it still feels new. With the 4.7 I am getting 16 city and 20 hwy mpg. Never a front end problem. Tires have worn evenly and still have the originals. Finish has held up well and people ask if I just got it. I tow a 22ft 5000lb boat with it and have always felt comfortable with it behind me. Snow? Best vehicle I have ever driven and I have had 14 different trucks. Good job with this one!

It's no Viper, but what a truck!

With a slightly modified '96 RT/10 already nestled in my garage, I didn't expect the truck to rival its performance. It doesn't. After all, it's hauling around nearly a ton more in curb weight. But this baby is plenty quick and fun to drive. It's thirsty at 10.3 mpg, about what I get from the RT/10 under reasonably normal (?)driving conditions. Bottom line - it's nice to have an "almost" Viper with electric windows, good air conditioning, a radio you can hear, and a truck bed for the golf clubs.

I have a new flame red 2003 Ram 1500 Quad Laramie with the Hemi and 20" wheels. It looks and sounds great. The interior is really comfortable and well thought-out, and you can see over everyone else, even with 2wd. The price was great with Dodge going after market share right now and the fact that it was a year-end close out. I love to drive it. I had a Chevy before, and did not think I would buy anything else, but decided to try the Dodge after driving it. It has the best warranty, most horsepower, best interior features, and best looks of any pickup out there.

I've had my truck for a little over a year ,and have found it to be reliable . I did however find existing body damage hidden under the weather gasket. The dealer fixed it but, I'm now finding spider type blisters under my clear coat. The dealer has pledged to fix the paint but I can't help but think I bought a 1500 with some issues

I have been unable to find the 5.7 liter Hemi in any of these sites. So here we are. I am not a truck person, but my husband has wanted one for a very long time! We got it right before being stationed in Germany. Very big truck for this country. Lot easier in the states, but still very big. Also the gas mileage!! Not very good, but what can you expect from a 5.7 liter Hemi? I do love it now though!

I plan to update the review after a few months, but even after just one day of owning my new 2004 Ram 1500 SLT QC 4x4 SWB I am so happy with it I wanted to write about it. I drove the truck about 40 miles today - I just couldn't stop myself, it was such a blast. The truck handles great in town, on the highway - everywhere. I haven't taken it on the trail yet, but I have no reason to doubt it will be at home there, too. Some of the perks in the SLT really shine through - the power drivers seat, the upgraded cloth seats, the infinity stereo system, the cool storage compartments, etc.

I bought this truck in 2002, has the 4.7 with full towing package. I towed a 25 ft travel trailer to Utah last year. (fr0m Louisiana) Not one problem. I towed to Connecticut and New York this year with a new 28 ft trailer. I wish I had the Hemi, but it wasn't available at the time of purchase. Still the truck performed flawlessly. My wife loves it. This is my first Dodge. Odometer is now at 35000. With the 20 inch tires the ride is nice and smooth. My next move will be up to the 2500. My trailers seem to be getting bigger not smaller.

This is our 3rd Dodge. The other two were Grand Caravans. I can personally attest to Dodge quality and safety. My husband was hit and broadsided in his Grand Caravan. It sustained $15,000 worth of damage, but he came out with only very minor injuries,l thanks to Dodge engineering. Our new 2004 Ram 1500 slt has that same quality feel and weight, yet it handles adeptly and the ride is great. The seating is very comfortable, the lit instrument panel easy to read and overall, it is an excellent ride. Theres plenty of storage, and the front seat center console box is great for storing maps and other needed quickly items.

I bought my Dodge in 2001. It had 65000 miles on it and when I got rid of it, it had 161000 miles. I NEVER had any major problems with the truck. I had to get rid of it because I went back to school. That was the saddest day of my life. :( Dodge is by far the best truck ever made. I will tell everyone the same. I am truly a Dodge fan.

My reference vehicle is my work truck, a 2000 ford f150 4X4 with the 4.6 and a four speed auto. The Dodge is noticeably faster with the 4.7 and the five speed auto. I love this transmission and engine! The mileage was not good for the first 1500 miles but has since improved to the advertised figures. I love the spacious cab. The only negative has been the ride. The dodge has a good highway ride but is a little harsh over bumps in the city. The ride seems to have gotten better as the miles have piled on or maybe I've just gotten used to the ride? Overall I'm very pleased with this truck and would reccomend it.

Really nice truck. I've owned many Fords but after checking out all the new styles on the market, Dodge was the best. I went with the HEMI 5.7 liter with 20 inch wheels. Lots of power and comfort. I love this truck. Check around on pricing as I found....I paid a little too much!! Milage could be better. Quad cab not needed if you dont have kids,as rear storage area is HUGE!!

I had the 2003 4.7 and loved it.They came out with the Hemi in the same model I had and I traded up. They both are awesome trucks.They are both similar except for performance and horsepower.My fuel mileage is better in the Hemi than the 4.7,with the bigger engine and more horses my engine isn't working as hard. I just have to get use to the pedal, truly my dream truck!!!

In the 7 months i have had my dodge ram, it has been great. I have always wanted one, and now i do, its my first new car, and i cant complain. Few minor things such as no power locks/windows, or cruise control, but those i could live with out. I think those things should be included in base models, my 82 camaro had power locks and windows. The gas mileage i thought would be better, but for city, its not great. Gotta love that Ram look!!

The new dodge srt-10 is what i think is what makes a real truck lover go crazy. This is what it is all about a viper engine in a truck making 500 hourespower. What more could you want? But i do have to say the gas mileage is a little low but hey if you can afford a 45 thousand dollar truck who needs to wory about the fuel economy. The handling is great and preformance is a great thrill to have. Who needs to go to the amusment park when you have a dodge srt-10, i sure dont. This is the badest truck ever.

Mine is actually an '02 but since Edmunds doesn't take previous years into account for current reviews, I'm posting it here. This is my first Dodge. A friend owned an 02 Ram and raved about it so I test drove and decided to buy it as I needed a new truck This is a phenomenal ride. Power, styling, features and it's quality! Over 30k on it, it had 1 recall (blower motor fan which I had done when I got my oil changed) no problems whatsoever. It's worth every penny!

Was very disappointed with this truck when the highway mileage claim for the Hemi 5.7 was 18 and the actual was closer to 13. The steering feels like there isn't enough caster. Go across a railroad crossing a little fast and you will think its all about to end. The interior is nice as long as you dont have to sit on the seats. Mine is the Laramie and the seats are hard and not comfortable. Had a power steering line blow and had to wait a week for a part. This was my first new Chrysler product and also my last. The engine is powerful but with that kind of fuel mileage I would expect Viper performance.

I WISELY ordered the Hemi motor and it makes all the difference in the world. My previous vehicle got 18 mpg, so my Hemi costs me about a buck a day more to drive. I smile a lot on the drive home no matter what happened that day. The truck is well put together and the 4 doors work great when hauling a crew. The guys howl when I twist the Hemi's tail and make it growl. Best truck I evered owned. Every time I pass a Dodge, we check each other out for the Hemi emblem. Ok, enough about the engine. This is a good truck in every way. Bottom line, don't hesitate to buy this truck, especially with the deals being offered out there.

I have owned my 2wd reg slt cab for two weeks now, and had no adjustment period. The truck felt like it was designed for me. The hemi performance is awesome, and ride quality is excellent (but you still know your in a truck). The dealership after the sale has been terrific. I think Dodge has listened to the consumer and produced a truck that will be a force to recon with among the top three. This is my first Dodge, and I am impressed with the fit and function of the truck. I definately recommend it, and if you have driven the Ford and Chevy do yourself a favor drive the dodge.

Great so far. HEMI sounds great thrill every time it starts. The 20's dont ride as well as the 17's but I love them. YOu dont but a truck to ride well. Space of interior is great as is the 6'3 bed. My only reccommendation is that its probably not as fast feeling as you would think but youll notice when you go to pass on freeway.

This truck is difficult to park, I still can't get this beast between the lines! The A/C is LOUD. The dealer says it sucks leaves and dirt into the fan... nothing can be done except remove the fan & clean it. When the brakes are applied the driver seat shifts just slightly enough to be annoying. I'm 6'2" and find the seats comfortable, my wife is 5'1" and hates the seats. There is MUCH more road noise now than when the truck was new. Drive side visor has just gone "floppy". Can't wear my western hat while I drive, the head rest is in the way, hellava note for a pickup.

Love the interior and exterior appearance. Silver paint and 20 inch chrome wheels really add to the appearance. Slate gray leather interior (Laramie package). Very smooth ride. Added nerfs, bug deflector and locking gas cap (mopar). Truck has been a real head-turner. Excellent service from dealer…and a GREAT deal! Purchased at end of month AND quarter, AAA purchase program (invoice + 1-5%), cash, $1500 incentive. Used Internet to research purchase…THOROUGHLY! Truck has poor gas mileage (expected this!). Loose gas cap will cause check engine light to turn on.

This truck has more poer and acceleration than any truck I've ever owned. I was strictly a Chevy guy and had good luck with them, but the looks and feel of this truck won me over. I have had many people walk past when sitting in the truck and comment on the good looks. If I have a complaint, they over exagerated the mileage. It's no where near what the comparable Chevy gets. I hope the power and looks are worth the loss in mileage.

I absolutely love this truck, it smokes Chevy and Ford in sooo many ways. They are really trying to move these trucks at the dealerships as well, hence the great deal I made. The truck is very tight and rides well on and off road, no rattling and the Laramie leather is super comfy. The Hemi pulls like a mule and won't kill you at the pumps either. What a great truck.

After 3 months I have the following to say: - Fuel economy estimates are high. Getting 12 city, 14 highway, not 14/18. - With 345Hp, should be quicker. - Drive train, especitally while towing boat, seems to take a long time to pick up speed. Once engaged, it pulls ok. With 345Hp, seems like it should do more. - Without load, can be a bumpy ride. Not suggested for commuter vehicle. Ride great with load or while towing. - A/C does not get cold fast enough when over 95 degrees outside.

Super truck. Lots of interior room and conviences. Hemi engine is awesome. Poor gas mileage. Ride is somewhat jittery. Interior and exterior quality, fit and finish is excellent. Dealer is the best I have experienced. NO hassle, a straight forward deal. This is the second new Chrysler product I have owned. The first was a 1958 Plymouth convertable. The engine, interior room and cab features sold me. The dealer approach was low key and honest.

When i drove it, i bought it. It is the best looking truck on the road. it is a blast to drive...it is as quick on the road as it is opening the wallet as the fuel economy lacks strength. i am overall, excited about this vehicle and its performance on the road.

The hemi 5.7 l engine passes everything but the gas station. My avg fuel is 10 mpg city and 12 mpg hwy. I expected 14mpg. The truck is feature rich but seriously lack quality. After 12k miles everything rattles and squeaks. although the feel quality seems great, dodge cut money on the essential components of the vehicle. The 20" rims are beautiful, but always out of balance. The suspension bounces like a rollercoaster ride when the road is not completely smooth. Several time the vehicles has almost bounce out of control.

Poor Fuel mileage is the worst thing about it. Truck tends to bounce to much around curves in the rear-end but, that is common with a short-wide bed. Center seat in the front should slide as the driver and passenger seat do to ensure more comfort for a center seated passenger. 0-60 in 8.8 sconds is rather slow for a V-8 but the pulling power can not be beat. Turns many heads and i fun to drive.
