2004 Dodge Ram 1500 SLT

The only new vehicle I have ever bought is a 2004 Rumblebee 5.7 Hemi it has 134000 miles just spent $1200 on the rear end bearings and seals did front wheel bearings about 4 years ago it has had a power steering leak from day 1 and still does even after replacing the whole rack and pinion under warranty, it also has a defect in the gas tank (a check valve) which if you fill the tank it will overload the EVAP system and die at stoplights and when turning corners which the dealership says will cost $1500 to fix so I just don't ever fill the gas tank, problem solved otherwise 02 sensors EGR and normal maintenance no major mechanical issues. Between rust on the rear wheel wells, tailgate, rear bumper which I have replaced and 4 accidents it has been a good truck. At the moment it's sitting in the driveway waiting for lower control arms after buying a front suspension kit the lower ball joints that came in the kit don't work mine has lower ball joints that are not removable had to buy the complete lower control arms with the ball joints that are rivoted in I'm replacing upper and lower control arms ball joints inner and outer tie rods stabilizer links (1 was broke) and replacing the oil pan gasket. I have upgraded the brakes to Powerstop Z36 drilled and slotted rotors, calipers and pads. I have always kept seat covers on it so the seats are like new I just didn't like the gray colored seats that came in it doesn't really match the mostly black and yellow interior.

2004 dodge ram 1500 quad cab and 6 ft bed for hauling people and property.

2004 Dodge Ram 1500 SLT

The 2004 dodge ram 1500 has a very useful 6ft bed and it is a quad cab. It also has a full towing package with two different type of plugs for trailer light hook ups. I have never had engine trouble and has a protection feature that will not engage the starter motor if the engine is already running. It has had oil pan gasket leaks and had to replace front wheel hubs. The interior has plenty of storage, under the back seat and between the front seats. Radio controls are local to the radio or on the back of the steering wheel for easy finger control. There are six speakers for an all around sound. Both cassette and CD's can be listened to.
