1997 Dodge Ram Pickup 1500 LT 2dr Regular Cab 4WD SB


I've enjoyed this truck. I would buy another. My income puts me in the used market so I don't have huge brand loyalty. I used it to tow a 28 foot travel trailer on holiday weekends - decent power for that. Four wheel drive in the snow is great. I did spend money on some repairs. Intake mainfold gasket replaced, front wheel bearings, and front end steering parts twice. I think that it's just part of the 4WD thging. I live in Wisconsin. It's starting to rust - go figure.

Best Features

Four wheel drive and a back seat most average people can climb into

Worst Features

Cup holders are terrible - They fixed it on the '89s
