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


Still nice driving down the road even hitting bumps other than my Flowmaster 40 I put in it, very quiet. My issues are with the upper and lower ball joints, the AC evaporator and the heater core. The AC has been out for years, the heater core leaks and the ball joints went two years ago. To get to the heater core and evaporator you have to take the whole dash out, about $400 in labor alone. The ball joints were replaced with actual ones that CAN be greased. Failed rear seat lever.

Best Features

Style, drive train reliability, how the vehicle holds together so no road noise nor loose pieces.

Worst Features

I should have waited for the true 4-door to come out. Rust on the bottom of the doors.
