Dodge/cummins 2500

Vehicle: 1996 Dodge Ram Pickup 2500 Laramie SLT 2dr Extended Cab 4WD LB

The best truck I've ever owned. Except for the defective fuel gauge Dodge has been putting in their diesel trucks for the pst decade or so, this is an exceptional truck.




I love my truck

Vehicle: 1996 Dodge Ram Pickup 2500 Laramie SLT 2dr Extended Cab 4WD LB

I love my truck. I just wish that when I wanted to buy a new one that they would offer the suicide doors again. Those 4 full doors are so geeky. For peets sake its a truck. I get pretty fair gas milage but it is a gas engine. I still get about 14 which is good. The mileage never changes when I haul the horse trailer either. I like that. The truck hardly gives when you hook it up.




Muscle truck

Vehicle: 1996 Dodge Ram Pickup 2500 Laramie SLT 2dr Extended Cab 4WD LB

The V10 engine guzzles the gas but feels like it should be powering a tank. Without a load the 2500's ride is stiff though not worse than expected. Overall this muscle truck makes you proud to be seen on the road.
