1999 Dodge Ram Pickup 1500 Laramie SLT 4dr Extended Cab SB


Purchased new to tow 3600lbs boat. Traveled to KS, TN, KY, VA, FL inside of 2 weeks and really enjoyed the trip. Great power, acceleration, and pulls like no other truck I've owned. A smooth ride on the Michelin tires; not so using Bridgstone AT. Dash top cracked after about 5 years. Minimum worrisome problems with regular maintenance performed. I did rebuild transmission at 84k; replace A/C system at 79k. Now I feel confident it is good for several more years and another 80k miles! Yes - I would buy another one.

Best Features

5.9 ltr ENG has guts. I get 17mpg in town/hwy using AMSOIL Synthetic.

Worst Features

Plastic dash is not durable in sun/heat/cold. Back doors do not open wide enough to exit back seat comfortably.
