Crappyest of the Big '3'
By Joshua Krause on


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


This truck is crappy. I have driven
all three of the trucks produced in
america for my work and i would have
to say this is the worst. All though
it has a 5.9, while the ford has a 5.4
and the chevy a 5.3, it is the least
powerful. The ride sucks due to it's
solid front axle. The tranny recently
went out and now I have no third
gear. The new Ram is no prize
either. Go buy a Ford if you want a
real truck.
