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


The 4WD works. This vehicle has never left me stranded and has always started. Transmission sounds like a handfull of nuts & bolts in a clothes dryer when engaging reverse. Huge oil consumption problem and spark-knock under most any kind of load. It uses a quart of oil at every other tank of gas in city driving and a quart of oil every tank-ful on the highway. The dealer re-set the computer to reduce the spark-knock but caused the 5.9 litre V-8 to behave like a slant six. There is rust beginning to show on the bottom edge of the doors and on the rear bumper. Like anything else in today's disposable society, pay your money and take your chances.

Best Features

The truck rides very nice. More car like than a truck. 4WD system works surprisingly well. Sound sytem is very good.

Worst Features

Improved quality control and follow up needed. Windows freeze shut and will not go down when parked outside in the winter.
