1998 Dodge Ram Pickup 1500 Laramie SLT 2dr Extended Cab 4WD SB


I bought this dodge private party from the original owner at 213,000 miles the original clutch lasted until 205,000 miles before it got replaced. I owned it for 2 months it now has 221,000 miles on it since I owned it I had to replace a headlight switch (push pull type)replaced the upper and lower intake gaskets, valley pan plenum gasket, power steering pump after i replaced the askets myself there is absolutely no oil consumption. the truck starts great in cold weather, never overheated in hot weather, climbs hills great and blows by other trucks. truck has performance mods but runs like new for the original miles on everything. I will never buy another ford again, dodge 4 ever!! great truc
