Good truck bad tranny

Vehicle: 1999 Dodge Ram Pickup 2500 Laramie SLT 4dr Extended Cab 4WD LB

I have two dodge rams 2500. one is a diesel standard and the other is gasoline automatic. The diesel with the manual has never gave me a problem but the gasoline with the automatic transmission is not so good. Ive rebuilt it twice so far. The mopar automatic is junk. Gas or diesel the tranny's are junk. Engines are good auto tranny's aren't.

Great truck, I bought it to pull my Jeep and snowmobile trailer. I have over 250,000 miles and it runs great and pulls like a train does not burn or leak oil. The only down fall is the tansmision had to be rebuilt at 240,000 miles.

Well...to start things off this Diesel truck has a cracked block. Its not the first. I am read up on this and its a big problem. The mileage is ok but the cost on antifreeze in the winter is the killer. The speakers blew in the front within 2 years. Good truck for the first 100, 000 miles.

Still a keeper

Vehicle: 1999 Dodge Ram Pickup 2500 Laramie SLT 4dr Extended Cab 4WD LB

Bought this truck new- Brakes are a joke. Had it in repeatedly while it was still under warranty; they never got it right. I've got 100k on it now with the 4th brake job coming up. And the ABS is anti-braking skid system...the rears lock up easily. But it goes through anything (I live on a farm, and this truck works!!)The gas mileage still isn't real good, but is actually better than when it was new. (no, I didn't have the money for the diesel) Since I drive a car to and from work (my real job) the truck only puts on about 10-12k/year now, so I'll probably have this truck another 5 years or so- it does everything I need it to do, which is mostly pulling heavy trailers.




Good old truck

Vehicle: 1999 Dodge Ram Pickup 2500 Laramie SLT 4dr Extended Cab 4WD LB

I have owned this vehicle since it was new. If I had to complain about anything it would be the brakes. I have full ABS brakes. I am doing the first brake job at 60k, My '92 had at least 50% brakes left when I traded it in at 85k. The truck has been very dependable and is comfortable to drive on long trips. Other than that I think the brakes are a little lacking, I love the truck.




The best pickup

Out of the three top American light duty truck builders this 1999 Ram 2500 HD has been the most dependable truck I have ever owned. I curently have 192,000 miles on it and have had no problems with it . I bought it 10 miles on it, actually it had 3 miles on it I put 7 on test driving it and I am the only one who has driven it and I beleive this truck will be with me a long time. I have no intention of selling it . Lets put it this way at 5 years old and 192,000 miles my cost of maintenance is a little over $1800.00.
