Summary:

Have owned every model...Chevy. Ford. even Mazda... Nothing but a Goat for me!!!

Faults:

The only things that have gone wrong since I replace the Motor is merely and Oil Pump and Oil Pump Shaft.

General Comments:

This Truck has been awesome. I picked it up for next to nothing.

Put a motor in after purchase, replaced the 360 with another 360.

All of the drive train was more than perfect when I purchased the Truck from the lot.

I have put nearly 25,000 miles on it and it has only needed an oil pump replacement and the Oil Pump Shaft.

Don't ever Try to take this truck away from me...

I also have the same Ram.. She has 239,000 miles on her, and I would drive it to the east coast from Oregon and never have a second thought.

Got it out of a field from an elderly farmer for 100.00, and threw a tune up, battery and tires on it.

In the past 12 years I have had it, hardly anything more than tune up, fuel pump, alternator.. small stuff.

I will have my Ramcharger till I die! And it will probably out last me!!

I have a 2006 GMC Sierra diesel, I drive my Ram... people think something's wrong with me, because I love my Ram and prefer to drive it.. Oh well. Maybe I do have some screws loose, but not in my Ram!!!

Summary:

This is the best hunk of sheet metal and grease I have ever laid my eyes on!

Faults:

I replaced the carburetor when I first acquired my Ram.

The power windows and door locks were completely shot.

The factory stereo and speakers had to be replaced for maximum enjoyment.

General Comments:

This is the meanest vehicle I've driven. I get tons of respect in traffic.

Plenty of room for extracurricular activities or groceries.

Great shift-on-the-fly 4-wheel drive and offroading capabilities.

Chicks dig this truck.
