    Dodge Ram 2500 Laramine 2dr Longbed — This is the truck design that turned everything around for dodge, and i love it. Now gas milage may hurt you here, since it has a V10, 488Magnum powerplant under the hood. The suspension in the truck leaves to a smooth ride. The storage netting and buckets behind the seat come in very handy. The storage in the middle seat also comes in handy. The dash bored will crack due to sun exposer, the paint will also bake in the sun heat. Overall i would rate this truck back in 1998 the best in class.

    Pros: Great power, Ride Quality, and Duribility

    Cons: Gas milage, Paint job, and dash bored craking

    Love My Truck — Truck is great but does not have the correct gear ratio for the engine. Real doggish at 65. Wants to shift continually between 65 and 75. especially under load.Other than that great truck. Have close to 100000 miles on it and still going strong.Bad gas mileage due to the V-10.

    Pros: Very comfortable.

    Cons: Bad gas mileage.

    The Dawg — The V10 does ok ( for a gas motor ) towing for work and fun. The mileage isn't bad ( I was told ), 12 mpg while towing 11,000 lb trailer. The drivetrain was built for heavy towing, not a bad ride, empty or loaded.

    Pros: Great tow vehicle, Excellent turning radius

    Cons: Huge door posts compared to other pickups make some big blind spots

    Gotta Love The Diesel. Sounds Like A Rig In The Driveway. — the way this truck looks and sounds coming down the road is amazing. There is the Dodge Ram hood crack that turns into a hole, that turns into a CB mount. initially this truck was kind of slow, had gobs of torque though. with a few hundred dollars and some know how it runs like a champ. do your research before buying one of these particular trucks, or you will pay for it. After I modified this truck making around 500 horses I usually get around 18 mpg empty and 14 mpg with a load. I love driving this through the city, bump the throttle, it burps a lil smoke and people move out of the way, not to mention when the turbo spools I'm gone.

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

    Pros: lots of torque, turns good and tight, easy on fuel. I want ten more.

    Cons: big bulky truck.

    Still A Good Looking Truck. — It is the Sport model and looks really good. Rides best with a load in the bed or when towing a trailer. The ride is a little stiff empty but it is still a good riding truck. The 5 speed is a good transmission. It was made in November 1997 so it has the 12 valve Cummins and it has been no problem. The front and rear bumpers are heavy duty custom made. It is a fun truck to drive.

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

    Pros: I enjoy the Cummins diesel.  

    Cons: The dash has cracked badly and the headliner is coming down in the front.
