1997 Dodge Ram Pickup 2500 Laramie SLT 2dr Extended Cab SB


Review

Bought this truck new. Have 103K on it now. Other than brakes and tires never have had a problem. {On third set of breaks and second set of tires.} Key was not having anti-locks. Bought HD package with overloads and tow. Ride a little stiff, but was built for heavy work it has had to do in its life. Will be a fan for life. Fuel isn't ideal, but that wasn't why I needed this much truck.


Best Features

Full set of overloads, class 4 tow, added coolers.

1997 Dodge Ram Pickup 2500 Laramie SLT 2dr Extended Cab 4WD SB


Review

Truck performed as promised. Plenty of power for pulling a loaded 4 X 8 trailer with a fully loaded full sized box. Very little mechanical problems. Will buy another soon.


Best Features

Power, power & more power! Ride is also good for truck of this size.


Worst Features

Better gas mileage.

Review

I bought this vehicle to pull a car trailer and it has been excellent for that. Gets excellent fuel mileage with the Cummins diesel. Truck has been 100% reliable over the 30000 miles that I have owned it. The only problem it has had is a leaking front axle seal which cost me a 100 dollar deductible charge to fix.


Best Features

diesel engine, four-wheel drive

Review

This is the first vehicle I ever bought new. I like others to break them in first. Never had a problem. I use it as a work truck every day. I haul heavy loads all week, clean it up and take my family on weekend road trips. I don't know if there is a perfect vehicle out there, but this is as close as I've seen!


Best Features

Love the comfortable ride. Never had it in the shop other than routine maintainence.


Worst Features

Does need better front bumper brackets, it doesn't sit straight...

1997 Dodge Ram Pickup 2500 LT 2dr Regular Cab 4WD LB


Review

I have now owned my V10 4x4 for a little over 5 months and still love it. Had to replace the radaitor last month, but all in all this is a great truck. It is quick, has good truck road manners on the highway and performs well off road. I am very pleased and would purchse another.


Best Features

The power of the engine is outstanding.


Worst Features

Just wish there was a good sounding aftermarket exhaust for the V10.
