2005 Dodge Ram Pickup SLT 5.7 V8 from North America


A Very Good Truck That Begs To Be Used


Nothing So Far, but Some Scratches In The Paint From Normal Work Ware.

General Comments:

Work Ethic-

This truck was bought to be a work horse, and a work horse it is. The truck has been put through it's paces as it has hauled trailers, been loaded with stone and other materials, and has often been off road.


It is a four door truck and I have had six adults inside of it and still had room. Many would not like the cloth seats or plastic dash, but it makes the vehicle easy to clean. Since the truck wasn't special ordered it does not have a CD player, which I would like to have. The AC is excellent and the sound system is wonderful.


It has the 5.7 Liter Hemi which I have yet to have a problem with. With lighter trailers you would not know you even had a trailer on. Even weighted down, the 5.7 still has good get up and go. Gas mileage is 15 mpg not towing and 13 mpg with a trailer. Not good, but with the power this truck puts out it levels the low gas mileage out.


The truck is sharp looking in a silver paint job with chrome wheels and bumbers.

I have scratched the truck, but other than that it looks very imposing.


This truck is a good truck for people who will use it to its full potential, but other than that I would not get this truck (or any other full sized truck) if you are not going to use the truck for what it was made to do...Work!

Your truck may beg to be used, mine begs to get out of a service bay. If your pickup runs long enough for you to enjoy it, don't count your blessings, you're a rare Dodge owner. If my year old pickup would stay running long enough to make the 3 mile drive to the Toyota dealership, I'd be rid of it already.

Yeah, go buy a Tundra, which is basically a Camry with a bed on it!! LOL, in other words, a poor excuse for a truck that will just have more expensive problems!!

Stick with the American trucks, which are are actually built for work, not just a smooth ride. How many Toyotas do you see being used by companies?? Not a whole lot, at least here in Wisconsin, all you see is Dodges, Fords and Chevys.

By far the torque alone will rip your passengers head off leaving it in the back window of the truck absolutely incredible performance. GOD BLESS THE HEMI!!!

I have a 2005 4wd 2500 with the cummings turbo diesel. I've had a chance to tow a 9000 lb. camper behind it from Dallas to Missouri. It's a flatbed so I hauled a large 4-wheeler and a couple of 300 gallon empty water tanks on the back also on this trip. Going through the hills of Arkansas on I-30 the truck did not know a hill! I put her in 6th gear (as its six-speed standard transmission in it) and pushed the cruise control button at 70 mph. I've been very happy with this truck. Ill let you know however, just before this one I bought a 2001 4wd with an automatic trans. and it would pull the same camper from a stop up a good hill, but I could'nt get her beyond 20 mph. until over the hill I went. That one got traded after one month for the one I'm happy with now.

I have an 05 Rumble Bee and absolutely love it. I have had 3 ford f150s - the most recent being a 2005 loaded fx4 - in the past and they can't touch the quality of this truck. The power is unbelievable and its wild on wet roads. It's at 30000 km and no probs LOVE this truck never want to sell it!
