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


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!
