by GT2002 on Dec 28, 2002 Vehicle: 1995 Dodge Ram Pickup 2500 Laramie SLT 2dr Regular Cab LB
My 2500 has about 63,000 miles on it
and I use it for towing a 30ft 5th
wheel trailer.Mine pulls like a
tractor. ride quailty and comfort in
the cab are very good on a long trip.
If you choose the auto trans, plan on
replacing the torq converter to get
that diesel power to the rear wheels.
Trans is the weak link. The diesel
engines will run 300,000 before needing
rebuilt. Also no smog required. The in
line 6 cyl is a 12 valve engine and as
such is quite easy to boost the
horsepower and engine torque. 70 more
hp for about $225.00 Get around 25 mpg
empty in hiway driving, 14 towing.
After a complete redesign in 1994, the Ram Pickup offers a club cab on a 134.7-inch wheelbase. Torque increases to 430 pound-feet with the Cummins 5.9L diesel with manual transmission and an illuminated overdrive lockout switch is standard. An Infinity CD audio system is optional and foglights are included with the Sport Package.
