1996 Dodge Ram Pickup 1500 ST 2dr Extended Cab SB
I have a 5.9L 4x4 SLT.. Owned it for 22 months and put 40k miles 2 missouri winters and 2 cross country road trips in it(Bought with 195k.. current is 234k).. This truck is a CHAMP... I have read tons of reviews and talked to many people who say bad things about it.. Ya MPG is bad.. Ya Cupholder design was a failure... But as far as reliability... I rebuilt rearend(215k) and replaced radiator(227k) and that was about it... it has 33x1250 tires with no other mods.. stk eng. stk trans.. pulls like a champ.. towed a lexus es300 with trailer and bed loaded with no effort whatsoever.. surprising part was MPG wasnt effected as much as i thought... Overpayed for it and horrible MPG but its worth it.
3.90 rear end with lsd and 5.9l motor.. tows and climbs like no other..
cup holders deffinetly(spilled too many drinks..) computer in 96 ws only year used. was replaced in 97 so chips and programmers are rare... MPG would b nice but for power im not gonna complaign considering price ..
