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

Review

Ever since the re-design of the '94 models, I lusted after one. Leased a loaded quad-cab. Then, reality hits. Had to replace rotors around 10,000 miles($500). Front bumper paint(Black Sport Model) started to bubble, flake. Now, the front bumper has rust spots all over. Dealer said "we've seen this happen before, but warranty doesn't cover". Had to replace speakers TWICE! Then, all was good until 55,000 miles (5.9 L - engine).Passing gear and poor fuel caused a sucked intake gasket, and COMPLETELY threw off the timing. Once again, no warranty coverage. But overall, the truck did it's job and it's had it's own hightlights as well.

Favorite Features

The "tough-looking" exterior. Rides FANTASTIC!

Suggested Improvements

Improve the painting techniques. Better quaility speakers. MUCH BETTER warranty coverage - Chrysler needs to stand behind their work!
