Consumer Rating

1997 Dodge Ram 1500 Club Cab 4x4 Sport.
This is the best truck I have ever owned. It is extremely realible. It is the heavy duty version, so I have not had any transmission problems. The only thing that is bad is the gas. I have did a little work on it to get batter gas mileage so it's not as bad.
Best I Have Owned
Owned every make, owned every model, I treat my truck like a work horse and it delivers every time. Most reliable thing on the farm...You won't go wrong with this 310,000 miles on it and just came back from a 1200 mile trip pulling a trailer...never missed a beat. After owning this rig, I can't even remember what a Ford or Chevy looks like.
Looks Good, But...
Love the look, the Sport package, and the dependability of the 4x4. However, not enough power w/5.2L, 5-Spd, & Towing Pkg when towing a pop-up. However, putting a Quad in the bed did not affect drive. Also, already need rear-main replaced, and sometimes the cruise will not stay steady on highway.
