1999 Dodge Ram Pickup 1500 ST 4dr Extended Cab 4WD SB

Review

I bought this truck because I love the look, the power, and the sound. It seemed to drive well, and the interior was spotless. So it went home with me. Then it began. I had to replace all of the brake hardware at the wheels, O2 sensors, cat convertor, full tune up, idler pully, belt, etc. I did this all myself, fortunately. Then, the track bar and a tie rod end was bad. I replaced them. Next, the transmission went. The rebuild was about 2500 bucks. Fortunately I bought an extended warranty, which paid for itself 3x over. So I basically have a new truck. A lot of this stuff could be expected at the age, other things not. I still love the truck and plan on keeping it a long time.
