Optional O/D when works

1998 Dodge Ram Pickup 2500 Extended Cab Laramie SLT 2dr Extended Cab 4WD LB


Review

Tough truck overall but 5 speed manual transmission has serious design defect on models with diesel engine. Fifth gear retaining nut tends to loosen rendering overdrive inoperable. When everything works will pull my 9000 pounds travel trailer with ease. Engine noise is rather loud in comparison with other makes.

Review

Overall a good truck. Haven't had much wrong with it, just tie rod and wheel bearing, and throttle positioning sensor. However, I had an extended warranty which saved me.

Review

I've pulled campers, boats, hauled wood, and pulled out stumps. Very impressed when I loaded the back, with camper top, completely w/ books and put on the camper, also loaded, and the back end only dipped a couple of inches and had no problem pulling from Orlando to Dallas.

Generally a Great Truck

Review

Overall, I have been very happy with this truck. I've used it to both haul horses across the country and to run around town. Always draws looks with its attractiveness, although the VERY loud diesel engine makes the compliments hard to hear! Only problems have been with electical/computer elements (sending units specifically) and I've had a hard time pinning Dodge down on repairing them under my extended warranty.

Review

I have a 98 Diesel Ram 2500 4wd. Worst truck I have ever owned (I am a bldg. contractor and have owned dozens). Since new, it has been in the shop a total of 68 days. Problems: Transmission (2 times) Injectors (3 times) Throttle sensor unit (4 times) Frozen brake caliper No heater or AC Many other misc. problems. I just bought a Ford F350 to replace this piece of crap.

Review

Bought this as a medium duty truck, hauled across the US a buncha times. Only changed the oil, cleaned the air-filter, and added diesel - it never slowed down !!! Looked good, worked good - it hit the mark for value/performance.
