1999 Dodge Ram Pickup 1500 ST 2dr Extended Cab 4WD LB


My girlfriend bought this truck out of impulse at a used car leader. It looks really good. But there are a number of things wrong with it and she has only driven it for 20,000 miles. it now has 171000. The transmission had to be replaced at ~160,000 which is really good for that transmission. Unfortunately the transmission is going out again. Also has an exhaust leak, heater core went out and doesn't have a block heater (which stinks in Montana weather) This winter the gas lines froze so don't forget to put Heat in the gas. The four wheel drives sticks really bad too. Just a warning for this year truck. Transmission usually go out between 50,000mi to 120,000mi.

Best Features

Good looking truck. engine has a lot of power with the 5.9 engine but gets crappy MPG.

Worst Features

Transmission is the only thing that bothers me a whole lot. i can fix everything else, but it stinks pouring money into a truck that keeps having problems
