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


My sister-in-law leased the truck new, I purchased the truck with 35000. In less than a year I have had to replace plugs & wires twice, flushed the fuel system twice (professionally), installed a K&N Air filter, and replaced the intake manifold gasket. That was all to get rid of cylinder 8 misfires. The Front main seal was leaking oil at 38000 miles. The rear axle was shot at 37000 and the factory made me pay $500 to replace verything. The trim in the interior feels like It's made of cheap plastic..oh, it is. I thought the bigger 360 would have some guts to it...not really. Im going for a Chevy or GMC...soon.

Best Features

I love the way this truck looks, but its like the pretty & dumb girl. You get past her looks pretty quick!

Worst Features

Chrysler should hire at least one engineer. It's a big company afterall.
