Darn good truck!
By wlollar on


1998 Dodge Ram Pickup 2500 Laramie SLT 4dr Extended Cab SB


Bought this truck used from a trusted dealer. Only wish I had bought a 4WD version. The Cummins engine has performed extraordinarly well. Only problems I've encountered was with the A/C system and starting to have fuel pump issues, but with 200k miles, it was to be expected. This will be the drawback because the total fuel pump replacement is VERY pricey, between $2000/$3000. If your looking for torque, this is the truck. I pull a 14,000lb 5th wheel camper with ease. The engine/drivetrain still does not leak a drop of anything on my driveway!

Best Features

Plenty of leg room and drivers seat comfort. Dash, instruments, and controls laid out well and not complicated.

Worst Features

Large windshield post on drivers side impairs visibility. A/C vents need a open/close feature. Foldaway cupholder rattles when in the open position.

before you go out and buy the injector pump have your lift pump checked. I own the same truck and I was going down the highway and the lift pump went out. I thought it was the injector pump too. and also have your fuel relay fuse checked had one of those go out too at the same time.
