This truck is a keeper!


I replaced the carb. when I purchased it in 96.

I had the windshield replaced in august of 2004,the company that put it in did not seal it properly so it leaked, because of it leaking it shorted out the dash which now has to be rewired.

General Comments:

This truck is an awesome machine.

I would recommend this type of truck to anyone who is interested in the off-road trails.

It is a great summer driver because of it`s removable hardtop from the windshield back.

It is comfortable and very roomy.

Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes

By any chance is the RamCharger you purchased in '96 Green? Did you pick if up in Medford, MA? If so I'm the kid you bought it from. Your description sounds awfully similar to the car I regretfully sold on that day.

Anyway...if it is, glad to hear that it's not only running, but running well. Such a fun truck. I still tell stories about it to this day. Amazing to think that after 25 years it only has 155K miles.
