I was wondering what the difference is between the regular laramie ram and the sport ram.

Head lights are different. Bumper is different and painted to match the truck. Different rims and badging. I'm sure there is more but that's all I know of off the top of my head.

keep in mind at least on 3G models the sport model is not necessarily faster, not much difference to speak of really......alot of sport models come with the smaller motors and non-sport models come with Hemi's

There is absolutely no difference in speed. The sport package is just an appearance package.

Well...Mine's Sportier than yours...

Other than the cosmetic differences, and a higher repair price tag...not a thing.

No. The offroad package is what has the 2 inch lift, along with an LSD 4.10 rear diff, tow hooks, and a couple other things I think.

I'm pretty sure theres a height difference between a regular ram and a sport. I know the off road is higher than the sport, but I wish someone could verify if there is a difference in sport vs non. One of my buddys has a non sport and its lower than my sport too.

The differences between a sport and a non-sport is that a sport has painted bumpers, and i think the lights are different and a vinyl strip and also on the 99-01 Rams the front bumper and grill is different.

Their is no difference in performance or suspension between the two.

RPMRamFury- Do you both have the same size tires, were you on level ground, does one of you have 4x4 and the other not.

They are both 4x4, both level to the ground, and same size tire. I wish someone who is reputable on these trucks could answer this for sure.

absolutely no height difference. or they would ask you if you had a sport package when you order suspension parts, but they dont. difference in performance is nothing at all either. only costmetic differences. headlights, grille, corner lights, front urathane bumper cover instead of chrome. the rear bumper is also paint matched along with the taillights. there are special sport wheels and badges. NOTHING other than cosmetics

Mine is a stock height 4x4 sport and is exactly the same height as any other stock 4x4 sport. Painted bumpers, painted grille, "sport" written on the rear back quarterpanels, and the different headlights. Not much else different.
