It Must Have Been Great Vehicle When It Was New. — It sits great. I saw pictures for months on Craig's List and kept looking back at it. Drove 2hrs to buys her. In a short time has made me good money. It started right up yesterday. I just sat in it for a while. The brakes stop on a dime. On fast turns I has a heavy sway. The inside is a little noisy because of the open emptiness. For a six cylinder it has a lot of power. I have always loved Dodge Vans.

Primary Use: Utility (towing boats, transporting cargo, etc.)

Pros: I bought it cheap, and put about $1500 of necessary work into it, and she now runs excellent.

Cons: The engine light goes off periodically, but otherwise remains on. Still needs tires. My wife wants me to sell it.

1998 Dodge Ram Van By Marc

The performance is quite well for it's size, thanks to the 225hp 5.2L V8. It also handles well, for a truck. The brakes take a little while to slow the rig down, but considering it GVW that's understa... Read More
