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


Review

I bought this truck with 100,000 miles
on it. It was still in excellent shape
and has given me three great years of
service. A few minor problems, but
what vehicle with this many miles
doesn't have a few quirks. My only
true complaint is that the fuel mileage
is less than Ford or Chevy for the same
size vehicle. I would definitely buy
this vehicle again, especially if it
had better gas mileage. Another
inconveinence is the lack of leg room
in the extended cab. It is alright for
children, but teenagers and adults are
going to have problems. My wife rolled
this truck last week and it is still
driveable.


Best Features

Good towing power, gets the same gas mileage even with a loaded trailer.


Worst Features

More leg room in the extended cab area, better gas mileage.

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.

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!


Best Features

Looks, sound, reliability


Worst Features

get rid of the chevy braking system

This has been a great truck to drive
and own. This is my first Dodge truck
after Fords and Chevys and have always
liked std cabs and this one is enormous.

I applaud Chrysler for this great truck


Best Features

Large interior, great looks, plenty of power and good towing capabilities.


Worst Features

Improve gas mileage.
