1998 Dodge Ram Pickup 1500 Laramie SLT 2dr Regular Cab 4WD LB


Review

Transmission is the weakest link. Mine
had to be replaced at 60k. Other than
that, replaced the battery and the
serpentine belt once, tires twice.

1998 Dodge Ram Pickup 1500 ST 2dr Regular Cab SB


Review

well, reading the bashing statements
from other people crack me up, i guess
they don't think that chevy and ford
have there problems. As far as the
brakes, they are made by "G.M." so
there's your problem. i agree the
brakes are defiently under par, but in
atlanta traffic there going to be a
issue. i've driven my truck very hard
for 80,000 miles now, bringing it to
the drag strip every weekend for about
2 years straight, and now every weekend
towing a 4,000 lb. car. As far as the
power goes, at least once a week i blow
a chevy away. I love my truck, and
wouldn't tell anyone not to buy one!

liked std cabs and this one is enormous.

I applaud Chrysler for this great truck

Improve gas mileage.

1998 Dodge Ram Pickup 1500 Laramie SLT 4dr Extended Cab 4WD SB


Review

I've been very happy with this
vehicle. I originally bought it for
its looks. But after 5 years I'll say
I'm glad I have it for every other
reason too. It has everything you'll
ever need on a vehicle, passenger
room, hauling room and great comfort
too.


Best Features

Some of the best feature of the truck have been its SIZE. Everything is a bit bigger.....Center console, cup holders, seats, mirrors......the list goes on.


Worst Features

Better feel for the road. I know it's a truck but a better feel for the road would be great.
