1997 Dodge Ram Pickup 1500 Laramie SLT 2dr Regular Cab SB


I love this truck! I bought the Ram as
a much needed replacement for my 1990
Ford Bronco and I just think this is an
awesome vehicle. The interior is very
roomy and very well laid out. The
paint is still bright and shiny even
after 7 years. The transmission is
smooth as is the steering with over
75,000 on the vehicle. I bought this
truck used, but it is very reliable. I
also love all the room the vehicle has
under the hood. My only complaint is
that the clear coat is very easy to
damage. The top of the bedrails
clouded up were I had a toolbox
installed. There is a TSB out for this
problem, but I solved it by getting bed
rail caps.

Worst Features

I would improve the shift points on the transmission to make them a little more firm. I would also like to see a HEMI offered, but that was taken care of in the 2003 model!
