Very tough, doesn't make you walk
Steering worn out, steering shaft worn at gear box.
Tie rods worn out, ball joints, jack shaft, problems locking the front axles in by vacuum switch. Causing axle damage, wiring, oxygen sensor bad, overdrive not working, vacuum pump seized up.
This is a tough truck compared to the new ones today.
Some things on these Dodges should be recalled like the steering. At the knuckle by the gear box, they were all bad. Also the four wheel drive vacuum engaged did not lock in fully, causing axle damage.
The inside wiring to heater is too light, causing melted wires.
For the rest of the vehicle, it can take a beating & still go. The 318 is one damn good motor; will outlast the vehicle.
Also they all rotted at rocker panels & front fenders & back fenders on the box. Although worn out, it does the job.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
