1998 Dodge Ram Pickup 3500 Laramie SLT 4dr Extended Cab 4WD LB

Review

I bought this truck to tow a fully loaded 34-foot fifth wheel camper in the Appalachia Mountians and she is a willing partner. The Low Range and 4wd make it possible to get the camper in almost anywhere. The 12 valve Cummings Turbo Diesel sounds like a big rig and when matched with the 5 speed manual transmission, you can putt down the highway at low rpms. 3rd gear will climb any highway mountain at 45 mph at full tow. A good contractors cap keeps the ride less bouncy when not runnig with loads. Diesel Fuel costs can swing more than gas. But if you need to tow heavy things, this is a hard truck to beat.

Favorite Features

Cumming Diesel Engine, Big Truck power and sound. Dual Batteries, Rear Entry 1/2 Doors, Power Driver Seat and Music System.

Suggested Improvements

Battery Cables Ends need to be made to fit battery terminals. Block heater for winter starts. Full 4 doors, but have been added to new models.
