1998 Dodge Ram Pickup 2500 Laramie SLT 4dr Extended Cab 4WD SB


I own a 1998 with the 24 valve Cummins diesel. I love the truck fun to drive and all. I have had the truck for about a year plus and I have a $1500 from the Dodge shop for my tranny problems. Won't shift into overdrive. The Cummins is a strong truck and has decent mpg, about 16.5 unchipped. The truck is slow without a load. I have just had problems with this truck since I had it so I'm going with a Ford 250 or 350 for room, speed, and looks. Also better gas mileage. The trannys in Dodge trucks need to be made better for the Cummins or any Dodge that's made.

Best Features

Strong truck as in frame built, big but not too big. Nice exhaust sound and turbo spool, sounds like a semi, good mud truck

Worst Features

Need stronger tranny, run faster, more room, better seats, better built
