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. full 2004 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. full 2003 Dodge Ram 1500 review
