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.

A real work truck!

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

I have a 1998 Ram with a 5.9L V8. I bought it stock and now it has 6" (3" Rancho, 3" body) of lift, 35" BFGoodrich All-Terrains. I use my truck hard and it has proven to hold up to my abuse. The only things I have had to fix are normal maintenance issues. I tow a 5500lb K5 Blazer on an 18' trailer with my truck now, and I can pass F-150s with the Triton 5.4L while towing. This is a great truck and will do what you need!
