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

Review

All maintenance done on schedule. Towing has only been performed with
overdrive OFF. NEVER exceeded or even came close to rated towing
capacity. Transmission after-cooler for additional protection installed.
Transmission failed at 30K, 75K, and 100K. EVERY time it has been the
torque converter clutch as the initial cause. Rear differential needed work at
25K and 60K. Transfer case failure at 75K. DO NOT shift on the fly, it will
ruin the transfer case eventually, even when ONLY performed below 30mph.

Best Features

Styling is sharp, lots of engine torque, comfortable, and fun to drive.

Worst Features

TRANSMISSION. REAR DIFFERENTIAL.
