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

Review

On paper this is a great truck. Trouble is it could have been better assembled by monkeys. Biggest gripe is with the engine's plenum-pan gasket leaking. It causes the engine to consume oil excessively and ping heavily under load. I don't know of one of these trucks that doesn't have this problem (5.2 and 5.9L gas engines since 1994). It is neither cheap nor easy to repair.

Favorite Features

Rides better than any truck I've ever owned (Wife even likes it!)
