1997 Dodge Ram Pickup 1500 Laramie SLT 2dr Regular Cab SB


Review

I love this truck! I bought the Ram as
a much needed replacement for my 1990
Ford Bronco and I just think this is an
awesome vehicle. The interior is very
roomy and very well laid out. The
paint is still bright and shiny even
after 7 years. The transmission is
smooth as is the steering with over
75,000 on the vehicle. I bought this
truck used, but it is very reliable. I
also love all the room the vehicle has
under the hood. My only complaint is
that the clear coat is very easy to
damage. The top of the bedrails
clouded up were I had a toolbox
installed. There is a TSB out for this
problem, but I solved it by getting bed
rail caps.


Worst Features

I would improve the shift points on the transmission to make them a little more firm. I would also like to see a HEMI offered, but that was taken care of in the 2003 model!

Review

This vehichle has 134,400 miles with
one set of tires. No work, except
regular service. Never even had front
end lined. Tires came off my other

Looks better thsn a new one and is
cleaner.

Review

Ezmerelda is my Green 97 Ram -The
3.9v6 under the hood is a bit under
powered for the full size rig but with
a lowering kit and a pwr chip you dont
notice to much- the cab is awsome its
like driving your living room couch. i
have had the vehicle 3 yrs and it has
never left me stranded - i drove GM for
many years but this Ram has made a
Mopar man out of me ....!


Best Features

Love the Ram's Classic body style and roomy comfy cab. Its Grimacing look as it closes in on you in the rear view mirror!


Worst Features
