I'd sure buy another one!

1996 Dodge Ram Pickup 1500 Laramie SLT 2dr Extended Cab SB
This wonderful truck, with 148,000 miles, 5.2 L, and 5-speed manual has been utterly reliable. It gets decent mileage (16-17 city; 20-21 highway) with the 3.55 differential. Acceleration is a bit slow, but I can cruise all day at 65 mph with only 2,000 RPM on the engine. Engine is so smooth, you can't even tell when its running. This is a "Mobil 1" truck: engine, transmission, and differential all have had Mobil 1 synthetic oils since after the break-in period. I expect to get easily 250,000 miles and 20 years of service.
Favorite Features
1) NP 1445, 5-speed manual transmission; 2) Rear bench seat is unexpectedly comfortable; 3) Styling and design: "big truck" look.
Suggested Improvements
1) Make sure all new RAM trucks can be made available with the option of a manual transmission; 2) Furnish the fuel-saving 3.55 differential with the locking feature for better acceleration from a stop in slippery winter conditions.
