Review of the 1998 Dodge Ram Pickup 1500

  • Info is not yet available.

  • Safety
  • Pros

    Distinctive sheetmetal, user-friendly cab, standard V-8

  • Cons

    Underpowered base V-6, ABS is not standard

  • What's New for 1998

    The Ram Quad Cab, as in four doors, becomes the first pickup on the market with two rear access doors. And for convenience, the front seatbelts are now integrated into the front seats, making for obstruction-free rear access. All Ram Pickups get a totally redesigned interior, standard passenger-side airbag with cutoff switch, and all airbags are "depowered" for safety.

Good all around truck

Vehicle: 1998 Dodge Ram Pickup 1500 Laramie SLT 2dr Regular Cab SB

I have had this truck for almost 2 years. It has 90k miles and giving it a tune up and changing fluids is the only thing I've ever had to do. It is very dependable and tows my 18ft fishing boat with ease. Very impressed with limited-slip rear end and engine torque. I can pull boat up very slippery ramps with little or no wheel spin and it's a 2W drive.




Won't buy another dodge!

Vehicle: 1998 Dodge Ram Pickup 1500 Laramie SLT 2dr Regular Cab SB

Purchased this truck new with 2 miles on the odo. Engine has run great but no power and terrible fule ecomony. Transmission is terrible. A/C core started leaking after 2 years. Dodge had problems with these and refused to warranty.

This has been a great truck to drive and own. This is my first Dodge truck after Fords and Chevys and have always liked std cabs and this one is enormous. I applaud Chrysler for this great truck

Vehicle: 1998 Dodge Ram Pickup 1500 Laramie SLT 2dr Regular Cab SB

Have had small electrical problems from the start, eventually resulted in transmission overhal and replacing computer. This with just 66,000 miles. I had planned on keeping this vehicle forever, now I am dumping it. Worthless piece. I am so disappointed... will never buy from Dodge again.
