1996 Dodge Ram Pickup 1500 ST 2dr Extended Cab 4WD LB


ok i bought my ram with 160k on it and it has not seen a shop for any major issues but its now lifted 5.5inches by skyjacker sitting on 315/75r16 mud tires and ill tell you what i will buy the same year and style i love this truck in the mud snow everything i just pull a 26ft tandem axle trailer with a backhoe on it gross weight of around 18000lb little upset with the toe power but thats a lot off weight should have never hooked up to that but anyways i just started having hesitation from the reverse and the 3rd gear but its all stock 250k and i am leaving for Florida as is i still trust it and i beat on it bad never had a truck take so much pain some of the things i do make me nerves

Best Features

4x4 great drove truck down a river. take to mud bogs. dunes hill climbs drags. ROOMIE hunting equipment and wife and dog all fit dont evan have to move the speaker box. POWER pulls boat great. LOOKS vary aggressive. DURABILITY cant kill it can kill the rear tires and the turf your on

Worst Features

the body rusts bad. steering box and trans could be build stronger. but over all i bought the truck for 2200 and am 2nd owner and no major maint and i have 90k on it just maintain you stuff shop around before purchase the rusted out one with the same mileage may be better then the shinny one
