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

Review

I bought this new and I had only one major problem with the rear axle pinion bearing tore apart at 28,000 miles with just over 3 years on the truck($1000 of work). No 7/70 drivetrain warranty back then but now they do. I informed Dodge of this with lots of pictures but they wouldn't even help even though its something that should went out with so few miles and should have lasted a lifetime. Other than that, the truck has served me well and plan on keeping a long time.

Best Features

This truck is a real work horse and able handle most jobs without a problem. Also, with the 360 V-8 motor with 3.55 axle with AC running & 65MPH, I average just over 20 MPG on the interstate

Worst Features

The truck has a wide turning radius, still uses front suspension bushing and joints with grease fittings instead of sealed ones - why?
