Summary:

No known issues as of this moment.

General Comments:

Beast of a truck - great styling and power.

Can tow mid-size loads with no problems.

Stock rims and tires can make the car a bit bouncy on non-smooth surfaces/roads.

Full options on my ride: rear power slider, sunroof, adjustable pedals and bench seating makes everything comfortable.

Summary:

Couldn't ask for a better looking or stronger truck. Very pleased with my 5.7 HEMI Sport!

Faults:

Right suspension seems weaker than other side. Had to have the suspension replaced because the truck was leaning. Problem resolved.

General Comments:

Pleased with the H.P. Gets even better when adding bolt on performance. Always looking forward to increasing power. Quite the head turner.

Seats could be a bit more comfy. Otherwise very pleased with my Sport. Second Ram I've owned. First was an SS/T with a 5.9 ltr 360 ci.

I owned a '04 Dodge Ram 1500 with a HEMI in it. Awesome truck. Very reliable as well. Dodge is the only domestic brand I trust. Unfortunately, I was unable to keep this beast because I just couldn't afford the gas for the darn thing. These are awesome trucks though. Ford and Chevy don't even come close.

I have had my Ram for 3 1/2 yrs. Will not have another!!!

Rebuilt tranny at 120,000 miles.

Replaced with a new tranny at 135,000, clutch over drive went out at 147,000. Warranty paid for it, but I will sell it ASAP!!! Tranny is crap, crap, crap!!

Going back to Chevy.

Oh almost forgot, transfer case went out at 130,000 and I only use 4x4 for snow driving approx. 15 times (not snow plowing). This was a 1998 Ram 1500 extended cab 5.9 (good engine though, no complaints).
