by Mad Dog on Oct 9, 2010 Vehicle: 1995 Dodge Ram Pickup 1500 Laramie SLT 2dr Regular Cab SB
I found this '95 online and bought it spring of 2010 for backup vehicle & weekend rides. Limited use from previous owner ("for hunt'n/fish'n"). With only 65k miles on it, most issues are from sitting in a barn (headliner dry/falling, etc.) and some frame rust (drop'n boat in & out). More than enough truck 4 my needs. Great reliability so far. Got one small patch of the usually paint peel, some oxidizing too. My 17yr old son loves the truck as well; cant wait to get something else for him so I can have my truck back! Good, strong, simple truck; w/minor restoration, minimal winter exposure, this truck could definitely last me through retirement (another 15 years yet)!

Peeling Paint, rusting doors, and it is
not even 10 years old. Has been
undercoated and paint protected every
year since new. Cruise control works
when if feels like. Last 22000 miles
it has been missing,bucking and kicking
at 45 to 65 MPH despite three sets of
plug wires and distributer caps. Oil
has been changed every 3K. Trans every
60K. Seat has torn around the
adjustment for lumbar support. I see
10 year old GM/Ford Products with less
care looking better.
After a complete redesign in 1994, the Ram Pickup offers a club cab body on a 134.7-inch wheelbase. Torque increases to 430 pound-feet with the Cummins 5.9L diesel with manual transmission. Optional equipment includes a natural gas 5.2L V8 and Infinity CD audio system. Foglights are bundled with the Sport Package.
