1988 Dodge RAM 150 Short Bed 4WD Review
It Was A Neat Truck And I Felt Safe Driving It, But I Wouldn't Recommend It As A Daily Driver. — I liked this truck mostly for its looks, sat high and just had a tough look. Also the truck was built like a tank and could take a beating. Unfortunately the 318 just didn't have the power for hauling, and it had relatively slow acceleration. The braking was decent. The handling wasn't that great. It was pretty noisy. I don't remember the gas mileage exactly but I know it wasn't good.
Primary Use: Commuting to work
Pros: Looked good. Built like a tank. Never got stuck.
Cons: Not much power and not all that fun to drive.
