2008 4dr Crew Cab 6.5ft bed 345-horsepower 5.7L V8

2004 4dr Extended Cab 6.5ft bed 345-horsepower 5.7L V8
5-speed automatic 4WD, part-time w/low range
I have had this truck many years and worked hard with heavy loads and rough terrain. Truck has been flawless. It has taken more abuse than almost any other truck and never has failed. see full Dodge Ram 1500 review
2003 4dr Extended Cab 6.5ft bed 345-horsepower 5.7L V8
5-speed automatic RWD
Most reliable vehicle I've ever owned and I've owned them all. Toyota, Honda, etc. None have been any better. Truck is used as a work truck with heavy loads and short trips. Only a few minor issues in over 10 years. Never broken down on side of the road. Just solid. see full Dodge Ram 1500 review
