Great truck

by on
Vehicle: 1999 Dodge Ram Pickup 1500 Laramie SLT 4dr Extended Cab LB

Bought from my next door neighbor with 100k on it, has 105k on it now. He kept great maint records and always followed oil changes, tuneups and fluid changes, as I have since I bought it. No problems except and transmission valve went out, $15 part and 10 minutes to replace! Would drive it anywhere.




One nice truck

Vehicle: 1999 Dodge Ram Pickup 1500 Laramie SLT 4dr Extended Cab LB

I have bought this truck from a gentleman that had it for about 3 years and he told me it was a good one. I can say he was right, strong engine gives you the power you want when needed, I feel confident on it and is quite comfortable. You can haul tons of stuff, the folding back seat allows to do so, even when in a rainy day. I am having a little bit of an issue with a leak on the transmission fluid, but other than that this is an excellent vehicle. I will get a newer one as soon as I can.




Unreliable and under powered -

Vehicle: 1999 Dodge Ram Pickup 1500 Laramie SLT 4dr Extended Cab LB

Unreliable – I now have 46K miles on my '99, and I have already had many problems, including engine gremlins causing it to run on only 7 cylinders, steering linkage replaced, rear end leak fixed, brakes replaced. Current problems are a transmission bushing ($1800), power steering pump on the way out ($??), and rust on the bottom edge of the tailgate and doors ($700). Under powered - The 318ci can barely drag itself up even modest hills. Forget hauling or towing, though I have frustrated myself trying. Forget cruise control in the hills or the truck will shift itself to .
