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

Review

I purchased this unit new, on price only. It was left over from 1998 into 99 sales year and discounted deeply. Now I know why. 12 - 15 mpg empty and 6 mpg towing a single car carrier (trailer gvw is 7000). It is a nice looking truck, but I could have purchased a diesel Ford and saved the difference just in fuel. Fuel guage failed recently, $800, thank you Dodge.

Suggested Improvements

Dump the 5.9 engine. Use an honest tow rating of 1500 lbs or so. Use paint, not plastic for trim. My 1500 SLT is all red with black plastic trim. It is now gray/white and looks real cheap.
