2004 Dodge Ram Laramie 4x4 Quad Cab Sb — I was a Ford man until the new Dodge came out in '02. But I wasn't sold on it due to its underpowered gas guzzling engine selection. Granted the 318 was bullet proof, just not great for a 5000lb truck. The 360 hasn't been good since '78 in my opinion. Then the Hemi made its come back, and the dotted line was signed. This truck still puts down the power, acceleration is amazing! Braking on the other hand could use some upgrades. When you stand on the brakes hard you want the trust that it'll stop you in time, and it does(first hand experience). After replacing the shocks the handling is back to the new truck feel. Normal repairs have been done: steering hoses, complete trans flush including torque converter, and all other fluids at regular times. As for gas mileage, lets be honest, Green Peace probably doesn't like it, but I get 12 mpg city and 18 mpg hwy. It's not the best but it is truck. The interior in this model 02-05 is enjoyable. You get in the leather and suede wrapped seats are comfy and dash has a great layout and doesn't give the appearance of being cheap. I have a minor problem with visiblity, power seats correct that, except for the A pillars which seem to create a blind spot. For me, I have to see the end of my hood, just a thing I need. The bug deflector is my aid to that. Overall, I recommend this style and model truck. There's always room for improvements in any vehicle.

Owned It For 9 Years Since It Was Brand New And Its Been A Great Experience — it has been very dependable since day 1, other than routine maintenance it had not cost me a dime for any major repairs, the hemi engine is second to none in its class and the body design is just as amazing as its drive train, would recommend a dodge ram to anyone considering getting one,

Pros

Safety on our winter roads

Cons

a little hard on gas...

55

I Love My Ram — Very good acceleration but you have to be gentle on the peddle with a 5.7 Magnum engine, they guzzle alot of gas. The ride is smoother than a car and sitting up high you feel like your on-top of the world. Trucks built now are very beautiful in appearance. Not built just for work but for everyday use also. I bought a used truck so the payments are the same as my other car was. Lets just say once you drive a truck you wont want to go back to a car. I find that small cars respect you more in your" BIG TRUCK" because you will cause more damage to their car than they can to your truck...

Primary Use: Sport/fun (spirited driving, track racing, off-roading, etc.)

... — Acceleration- pretty badass, brakes-always good to have, handling- fairly easy. Interior- basic but effective, exterior nice and chromed --if you want to buy a truck, get ready to pay some nice high gas prices/insurance. overall great purchase and i have not a single problem

I Love This Truck, Best Truck I Have Ever Had — good acceleration, good braking, handles well. I have never had to spent money on repairs just maintenance. Nice color outside, and simple amenities inside. Good mileage. I love driving it. I have had since it was new and wouldn't trade it for anything.

04 Dodge Ram 4x4 — I love the looks of the 04 dodge ram the grill is solid and the lights are a lot nicer than the new ones (in my opinion) Vehicle drives extremely smooth with the exception of the shake in the wheel due to needing new tires but other than that the 4x4 is awesome and the seating and comfort is spacious! The car picks up quick because of the 5.7 Hemi, but because of that.. i get a solid 10-11 mpg which blows

Wicked Hot Truck — The truck has loads of power. Great mileage for what is under the hood. Lots of interior room. Took off the stock Goodyear tires and put on BF Goodrich and the handling and ride has improved immensley. Other than that no trouble and love it. Highly recommended. fun, fun, fun.

That ginormous freakin engine, arrr arrr arrrr

Cons

Fuel mileage sucks butt, but if I could keep my foot out of the oil pan it would get better mileage.

Mclovin My Hemi — This thing has amazing power and incredible reliability. The only thing I have replaced that was not my fault, was an idler pulley and it has 185,000km on it. Will obliterate a set of tires. I need new back tires, when I can afford them, I am going to video me roasting what's left of these. I would recommend this style of truck and this amazing engine to my friends and have done so. Long live the HEMI, baby

Ram Tough....arrrgh ! — Awesome power and great ride! With the Hemi, towing and hauling will never be a problem...Twenty inch rims, add extra height and comfort to an already great ride. The interior is reasonably "classy" when one remembers that they are actually in a truck. The upgrade to an Infinity sound system was worth the extra few dollars...
