1996 Dodge Ram Pickup 1500 Laramie SLT 2dr Extended Cab 4WD SB

Review

This truck has over 200,000 miles on it. Had to rebuild engine and transmission, but well worth it. We were forewarned about automatic dodge ram transmissions anyways, so that was expected. The only real problem has been the fuel pump. That's been replaced twice, but I think it's a quality issue. Be careful about the retailer and quality of your fuel pump. Great for going over curbs, rocks, etc. Fits in places you would NEVER expect! It can be challenging to get into 4WD. It's comfortable on long road trips. The rear seat folds up which gives you more space. It's quite roomy in the back for passengers considering it's a truck!

Favorite Features

Very comfortable seats. The feeling of safety. Being able to fit 6 people in it. There's plenty of room to work on the engine and not a bunch of jumbled computer stuff or sensors in the way.

Suggested Improvements

Transmission kick down definitely could be better. Stock CD player won't play homemade CDs. Fuel economy-10 or 11 mpg just doesn't cut it!!!
