Default RAM 1500 turning radius

One thing I hate about my truck is the (lack of) turning radius. My wife's Durango has a much smaller radius. I know, it's a smaller vehicle. But, I'd love to tighten the circle if i could...
Any thoughts???

No, but don't feel like the Lone Ranger. The Titanic had a tighter turning radius than my SRT-4 does!!!![:@]

For some reason Dodge must not believe in turning radius. My friend has a Neon and a Intrepid and niether of them turn worth a flip. My 04 QC 1500 turns alright for its size. I have never seen a dodge that turns well.

Last winter the Ram 1500 had a terrific turning radius. Did a truck's width turn at the red light on a patch of ice. After I opened my eyes I saw the cemetery straight ahead. I'm always thinking of ways to save money. Just plow into the cemetery and cut of the middle man.

I can't believe you guy's are bitching about the turning radius of this truck. I just traded a 95 z28 for a 04 ram regular cab, and the truck has a tighter turning radius than the Camaro did.
I had a 99 SLT Laramie that had a tight radius also. This is the best handling standard production full size pickup on the market right now.

I agree with rambob. Go and test drive a Chevy extended cab... you'll be really happy with your Dodge afterwards. Although I can't speak for the newer trucks, my '01 turns MUCH better than my Chevy did.

I traded in an 01 F150 extended cab for my 04 Ram QC... Oh my, this truck is so much better than the F150. That truck took an acre to park and I always had to pull in, back up, pull in. I hated to park that thing.

The Ram is sooo much better.
