Year / Model Reviewed:
2000 Ram 3500 QC 4x4,Cummins & 5spd
Cummins diesel,awsome pulling power,comfy seats,spaceous interior,great looks & ride height,big Dana 80 rear end,folding back seat,bulletproof 5-speed.Got the best deal on it versus the other 2 brands.
Quad cab could stand more room. More sound insulation for engine would be nice,it's not too bad though.Auto trannys are weaker. I also like to hear the turbo spool up like the other people on this review.
Overall,a great truck,especially for towing really heavy things like a 30' Hunter sailboat.Yes,that's right, all 14,000 lbs of it(w/ a triple axle trailer). No problems at all(I have the Jake Brake as well).I could tell it was back there,but the truck seemed to shrug it off like it was just another day on the job. So far,I love this truck. I use it for pulling our 3(really 2-1/2) sprint cars to all the tracks in the northwest & northern CA areas just about every weekend.I would recommend this truck to anyone who is going to be pulling some stout loads behind them(10-15,000+ LBS). The Cummins is an amazing engine,it doesn't matter what the circumstances are, it just keeps going the distance and delivering the goods. It also pulls up hills quite nicely around here.I have passed quite a few diesel equipped Fords & GM's going up the hills like they were sitting still,all the while, hauling a heavier load! One Ford PSD owner on the C.B. asked me what I did to make my truck pull like that,and I replied: "What do you mean?, This is stock!". Needless to say we talked about Dodge trucks for the rest of the trip across I-90 and he wished he bought a Ram instead(oh-well,I felt bad for him in a way). This truck is deffinately built for the long haul! Stay away if your looking for a "take the kids to school" kind of vehicle. It's designed to do more than that kind of stuff.....
