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


Review

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.


Best Features

Overall craftsmanship. Seats and instruments inside have all held up great. Truck is very solid.


Worst Features

Definitely gas mileage. I can get around 15 around town being careful with the throttle, but that's part of having a truck that can also pull. (I have friends with small trucks with V6s and their mpg is about the same as mine.

Review

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.
