Good used ram

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

Bought used with 95,000 miles. No problems, so I deceide to invest a little $$$ for the next 100,000 miles. Tune up $100: plugs, wires, rotor & cap. Exhaust: $700 new cat converter, O2 sensors and exhaust. High flow air intake, $120. Bed liner: $100. Fluid Exchanges $200: oil, coolant, Trans/filter. Molded floor mats: $80. This truck hasn't given me a lick of trouble and now gets 15mpg city & 18.5mpg hwy with the 360. Will take on first tow trip trip to NM in 2 weeks. Not worried. Lots of room, comfortable ride, quiet for a truck & hauls everything I need.

So far I have not been able to get my wife out of it so I can drive. She never wants another car, don't know what to do about the price of gas? now I drive her van. It's made driving fun again . Only problem is the speakers don't fade on the knob, might be a lose wire.




Poorly made interior

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

Transmisson problems, dashboard cracked to pieces, paint on the hood and roof lost clearcoat and started to rust, catalytic converter had to be replaced...besides that, nice truck. Buy at your own risk




Reliable truck

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

Purchased new to tow 3600lbs boat. Traveled to KS, TN, KY, VA, FL inside of 2 weeks and really enjoyed the trip. Great power, acceleration, and pulls like no other truck I've owned. A smooth ride on the Michelin tires; not so using Bridgstone AT. Dash top cracked after about 5 years. Minimum worrisome problems with regular maintenance performed. I did rebuild transmission at 84k; replace A/C system at 79k. Now I feel confident it is good for several more years and another 80k miles! Yes - I would buy another one.




Dependable blue sport

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

Good ride and great handling capability. Reliable. Those with bad experiences with the motor/automatic transmission, all I can say is proper maintenance goes a long way.103,000 miles and the motor and transmission (using the approved tranny fluid )are still strong. Not a dime spent other than fluids (oil changes) and 1 tune up on the engine, tranny. I would strongly recommend a tranny cooler added. The front seats are comfortable on long/short trips. This truck hauls loads with great braking and drive train capability. Only the evaperator, speed sensor, water pump, and light switch have been replaced .Not bad for 103,000 miles. Next truck will be another Dodge after this one wears out in 15 years or so.




Butt kickin truck with car

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

This truck has been the best I have ever owned as far space, ride, comfort, and performance...It really stacks up...The interior is of good design and good comfort. This truck is comfortable for long road trips or for towing a boat, I have not had 1 issue with this truck, except the oil needs changed...I hope the car I am switching too even compares to my truck, I am going to miss it.
