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.

Never own another one 2nd

Vehicle: 1998 Dodge Ram Pickup 1500 WS 2dr Regular Cab LB

I have owned 2 Ram trucks. The first one was a 1986 2wd 6 cyl 1500 standard. This was a good truck it did have it's own set of problems Transmissions! The 1998 is a big disappointment. The first problem was tire wear.Had to replace front tires at 10,000 miles. It always ran ruff,ate breaks,poor mileage, rear window always leaked, and now needs a trans job at 100,000 miles. This is the last Dodge I will own. I have owned 4 others. Their quality has hit bottom and it's a shame. I was a Dodge diehard/no more.
