1999 Dodge Ram Pickup 1500 ST 4dr Extended Cab 4WD SB


The 4WD works. This vehicle has never
left me stranded and has always
Transmission sounds like a handfull of
nuts & bolts in a clothes dryer when
engaging reverse. Huge oil consumption
problem and spark-knock under most any
kind of load. It uses a quart of oil at
every other tank of gas in city driving
and a quart of oil every tank-ful on
the highway. The dealer re-set the
computer to reduce the spark-knock but
caused the 5.9 litre V-8 to behave like
a slant six.
There is rust beginning to show on the
bottom edge of the doors and on the
rear bumper.
Like anything else in today's
disposable society, pay your money and
take your chances.

Best Features

The truck rides very nice. More car like than a truck. 4WD system works surprisingly well. Sound sytem is very good.

Worst Features

Improved quality control and follow up needed. Windows freeze shut and will not go down when parked outside in the winter.
