2004 Dodge Ram 1500 Quad Cab

 

This site is a showcase of my latest vehicle, a 2004 Dodge Ram 1500.

I found my Ram on eBay Motors and shortly thereafter bought it form its first and only owner, a Mopar enthusiast in Seattle. The whole process of purchase, payment, shipping, import and legalities was facilitated by the nice guys at Affordablesupercars.dk, and the actual shipment was handled by DFDS Transport (US) Inc. While waiting for my Ram, I sadly had to part with my 1987 Chevrolet El Camino Conquista, which I had owned for 16 years.

My Ram was originally purchased at Jack Powell Chrysler-Dodge Inc. in Escondido, north of San Diego (click this link to view on Google Maps), and after a year's time in southern California moved to Seattle, Washington. I bought it in April 2005 and received it, after a - loooong - paperwork and shipping period (well, think of it: it had to sail from Seattle to Copenhagen - that alone took more than a month), in August 2005. By the time storage, handling, shipping, customs & import duties, value added tax, technical conversions, inspection and registration tax were paid, the total price had roughly doubled. Nevertheless, I ended up with a late-model full-size truck in excellent condition for about the same price as a new plain-Jane VW Golf here in Denmark. (For those of you that aren't aware of this, we suffer from insanely exorbitant car taxes: passenger vehicles are taxed roughly 180% - on top of 25% sales tax! "Buy one, pay for three". Alas, the high cost of free education and healthcare...).

And my Ram is unique: I guesstimate that there are anywhere between 50 and 100 third-generation Rams in the whole of Denmark (car population: approximately 2.5 million). Even though the popularity of SUVs has exploded lately this side of the Atlantic, my Ram still stands bigger and taller than most other non-commercial vehicles. And it can out-accelerate Cayennes at a fraction of the cost!

The heart of my truck is the 5.7 liter, 345 hp HEMI Magnum V8 engine - rated by Ward's AutoWorld Magazine as one of the 10 Best Engines for 2003, 2004, 2005, 2006 and 2007. This new-generation Hemi was introduced on the Ram in 2003. The Hemi is manufactured at Chrysler's Ramos Arizpe, Mexico Saltillo Engine plant, and the truck is assembled at the Warren Truck Assembly Plant in Warren, Michigan. Read more about this wonderful engine on my Hemi page.
