2011 RAM 1500 4WD Crew Cab 140.5" Sport

For those who may not know, other Dodge Ram trim levels include the ST, SLT, Big Horn/Lone Star, Sport (1500 only), Laramie (which includes the new Longhorn edition) and Power Wagon (2500 Hemi only). Other packages, such as the Tradesman and Adventurer packages, will be coming as well.  As soon as the 2011 Dodge Ram 1500 Outdoorsman hit our driveway, we immediately started planning a trip to the closest park.We packed our test truck with all the camping and cold-weather gear we could find. The park, which is celebrating its 75th birthday this year, is split between two extremes: the lower-elevation (below 3,000 feet) Colorado Desert on one side and the much cooler, higher-elevation (as high as 4,000 and 5,000 feet) Mojave Desert zone. Exploring as much of the park as possible means being prepared for anything, especially if we wanted to get some serious stargazing in as well. The style and features of the truck are well done, as Dodge Ram1500 Hemi made every effort to include every off-road, towing, and four-wheel-drive option available to the platform. Likewise, all Hemi's 5.7L models get the biggest fuel tank available (32 gallons for the 1500 and 34 or 35 gallons on the used Dodge Ram1500 HDs, depending on the bed length); at least a class IV hitch with both four- and seven-pin plugs; a limited-slip differential; and the heavy-duty cooling package. Our Ram1500 Hemi had Goodyear Wrangler AT/S 275/70R17 tires that filled the fat-lipped wheel wells quite well and helped give the package a more rugged stance. All 2011 Dodge Ram1500 Hemi  packages get two-tone paint with a Mineral Gray lower color that starts in the bumpers then wraps around to the fender flares to the lower door valances. As you might expect with any rugged 4x4 package, all Dodge Ram1500 Hemi include front and transfer case skid plates for serious protection when exploring rougher backcountry terrain. Although most national parks do not allow exploration off designated roads, Joshua Tree offers many miles of well-maintained dirt roads, giving visitors access to the more remote — and scenic — areas of the park. Our Dodge Ram1500 Hemi provided adequate ground clearance and solid four-wheel-drive capability as we navigated through the Queen Valley, past Skull Rock and around Sheep Pass campground. Since our vehicle came equipped with the electronic 4x4 transfer case, shifting from rear-wheel drive to high-range four-wheel drive was an easy turn of the dial. It’s worth noting that once the 4x4 high-range is engaged, the center differential in the transfer case is locked, so this mode should be engaged only on low-traction surfaces like gravel roads, snow-covered pavement or loose sand. Combined with the aggressive treads of the all-terrain tires and smooth ride from the rear-coil suspension, the Dodge Ram1500 Hemi 5.7L never came close to getting stuck or finding an obstacle it couldn’t overcome.
