    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.

    Pros: Style, performance, engine power, driving enjoyment.

    Cons: Gas mileage, blind spots, rear cab space.

    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.

    Pros: lots of power, great mileage with the chip

    Cons: the goodyear tires suck

    Attention Getting Vehicle — I love, love, love my truck. Unfortunately it is very expensive to run. I have had problems with the steering (rack & pinion) which is apparently very common in this vehicle. Too bad Dodge does not care about the quality of their craftsmanship. My truck has the Hemi and it is very responsive and a powerfull engine. It is just too bad that it comes at such a cost gas wise.

    Pros: Really comfortable, lots of room, powerful engine

    Cons: built poorly, really bad gas mileage

    It Is Very Spacious And A Great Ride — I hate the gas mileage. With the gas prices where they are, I need to trade it is. Other than that my truck is awesome. I would love to keep it but I can not afford it. My truck is metallic blue and has black interior. The back seat fold up and there is storage underneath

    Pros: My truck handles great and looks good with the color

    Cons: gas mileage is horrible

    Made In St Louis — I bought my truck in 2004, the Dodge Ram 1500 Hemi 4x4 and the truck has been running without any problems ever since. It has the Hemi 5.7 liter V8 engine couppled to an automatic transmission.Its the perfect no frills work truck. I plan to use it at the Maintenance shop by the end of this year

    Pros: Engine is awesome!

    Cons: Didnt get the electrical window openers...Lesson learned!

    A Lot Of Room And A Good Stereo System.....a Lot Of Potential To Jack It Up With Some Big Wheels — Love my truck; has a lot of balls but sucks the gas. Dodge makes a pretty good truck. The Hemi is an awesome engine; and they made it pretty user friendly. Adding oil to this thing is easy. The four wheel drive is easy to engage in the winter and works really well as long as you have some weight in the back. Its a hot rod truck.

    Pros: Has balls

    Cons: Sucks gas

    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

    Pros: 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.

    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...

    Pros: Great power with smooth ride.

    Cons: Fuel consumption hurts the pocket book!

    Big Old Truck — Over all good truck for those with big needs or desires.

    Pros: faster and louder than hell. more than enough space to fit six people comfortably. 6 disc changer makes for great music too.

    Cons: drinks gas like an alcoholic does beer. hard to park sometimes.
