Dependable machine

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

My dash has never cracked! (must be that armor all hahaha) I bought this truck because of the way it looked back in 2001, big and mean. Very reliable truck, she has always gotten me back home, not afraid to go driving long distance. regular maintenance goes a long, long way. The only major repair I had to do was the torque converter (replaced with aftermarket high stall) and added a transmission cooler because the transmission started acting up at around 120k and haven't had any problems since. Strong 5.9 magnum will spin 35's no problem and still have lots of horses left to pull that moose out. Next truck will definitely be another Dodge whenever this one goes, not for a long time.




Long term happiness

Had this truck for almost six years. Never had a vehicle anywhere near that long. Great power, pulls my horse trailer, my camper and has power to spare. Transmission started shifting erratically at about 150,000 miles, (although it was a tow vehicle since new) 5th wheel hitch was installed before I bought it. Best seats in a truck ever! Bottom not sore after trip to Iowa from Michigan. Wish it had more rear seat room, my family is outgrowing it.

Burns a lot of oil, lifters ticking, blows a lot of blue smoke out of the exhaust




Good truck

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

I bought the truck new in 99 and have had good luck with it. I use it to pull a 3,000lbs boat all summer and do some intense off roading when ice fishing. I have had some warranty work for the intake manifold gasket and have changed brakes and tires from normal use. The suspension seems to be a bit soft as it sometimes will bottom out with load in bed and steering seems to have some extra play in it. The truck overall has performed good and has been reliable. I have always liked the styling which was the deciding factor to buy.




One great truck

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

Only 17 years old and bought the truck last month. 160,000 miles on it and it runs great. A lot of power, and can tow my pop's 28 ft boat with ease. It's hard on gas, that's it. Rides nices too. Just hope the tranny wont go like people say.
