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

Review

I just read a bunch of negative reviews of the truck I own and I have to speak up. I have 70K miles on my 98 quad cab and have never (knock on wood) had a single problem with it. New front brake pads at 45K, new tires at 55K, new battery at 63K, rear drum shoes are about due now. That's it. This is a great truck. Check the TSB's since 1998: Dodge: 1, Ford F-150: 200+!!! All this, and I regularly pull a 3000# boat around like it's nothing! Get both sides of the story before you buy.

Favorite Features

Interior comfort and ergonomics are great. Towing pkg. enhancements must work, because the engine is in great shape despite regular workouts.

Suggested Improvements

Braking and Steering ability could be sharpened. Rear seat room could always be increased. Power options for passenger seat would be appreciated.
