1998 Dodge Ram Pickup 2500 Laramie SLT 2dr Extended Cab 4WD LB
Review
This '98 turbo diesel 2500 4x4 automatic is my second Dodge. I owned a '97 4x4 with a 5.2l (318) 1/2 ton 5 speed stick that I absolutely loved, but it couldn't handle a Lance camper and a boat. The '98 really handles the camper and boat very well; I blew by my father in law's Ford v-10 while he was pulling his a 26' light travel trailer; of course we were coming over Carson spur from the Nevada side. It's steep.
Favorite Features
Electric driver seat gets up and tall; let's me know I'm in a truck that can handle the work. Seat is also adjustable to every angle and comfortable. Very reliable truck also. I change the oil and fluids when they need it, check tire pressure and it keeps on going.
Suggested Improvements
I wish I had the standard tranny. I had a larger fuel pump spacer installed for quicker acceleration from stop. Runs quicker, but I only get about 13 mpg with a load; but that is at 65-75 mph hauling a Lance camper, sometimes a boat.
