1996 Dodge Ram Pickup 1500 Laramie SLT 2dr Extended Cab 4WD SB


This truck has been great. Only minor
problems with things like pwr seat and
4 wheel drive. 5.9L pulls a 26ft
trailer with ease. 4WD gets me in and
out of anything I tried. Installed K/N
and performance computer plus 3 inch
exhaust and got good response out of
each. Ride is good but not great, but
prefer the solid front axle to anything
else. Truck has held up well with
regular maintenance and I don't baby it
off road. Getting ready to move up to
a 2500 with Turbo Diesel.

Best Features

Limited slip give great off road performance. 5.9L engine has plenty of power especially with upgrades I've done. Roomy interior. Good Ground clearance.

Worst Features

Gas mileage could be better. Braking system could be improved.
