1996 Dodge Ram Pickup 1500 Laramie SLT 2dr Regular Cab SB

Review

Was in the shop twice for tranny problems. The first time was the day after I bought it - O-ring installed improperly. The second time a spool valve needed replaced (made tranny noisy in reverse). Also, the FM section of the Infinity stereo comes and goes. Actually, no major problems. I plan on keeping it for many years.

Best Features

Looks and handling. Drives like a car, although ride is much harsher - which is to be expected. Also the 360 V8 gives over 18 mpg on the highway at freeway speeds (and above). If you're 6' or over, the truck has plenty of room, so you don't have to spend extra for an extended cab.

Worst Features

More low-end torque for the 360 engine. Accelerates great above 35 mph, but below that it's a dog. Truck has 3.55:1 posi differential. 3.90:1 would be better for around town.
