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


I just read a bunch of negative reviews
of the truck I own and I have to speak
up. I have 70K miles on my 98 quad cab
and have never (knock on wood) had a
single problem with it. New front brake
pads at 45K, new tires at 55K, new
battery at 63K, rear drum shoes are
about due now. That's it. This is a
great truck. Check the TSB's since
1998: Dodge: 1, Ford F-150: 200+!!! All
this, and I regularly pull a 3000# boat
around like it's nothing! Get both
sides of the story before you buy.

Best Features

Interior comfort and ergonomics are great. Towing pkg. enhancements must work, because the engine is in great shape despite regular workouts.

Worst Features

Braking and Steering ability could be sharpened. Rear seat room could always be increased. Power options for passenger seat would be appreciated.
