the dodge that i own now has been in my family since i was little my father bought it for 5000 from a used dealership in 1999 with about 45000 miles and i have owned it for the last 2 years and it currently has 250000 miles on it the only problems that it ever had was a worn out fuel pump and a broken oil seal that leaks almost a whole quart a week and as a 18 year old i run it hard and go mudding so to all of you who complain over these big things like trannys you need to look back at old owners or even yourselfs because these things are caused by you overlooking small details that dont cost much to fix before it causes a huge problem Dodge will always be the truck for me
ive had this 96 xcab 4x4 5 speed for 11 years now it had 40000 on it when i bought it now has 204000 2nd clutch 3 water pumps 1 power steering hose fuel pump this year moved from vt to texas pulling an overloaded trailer made it no problem 318 little under powered at times all in all i love this truck buy the way the engine hes never been apart orginal starter and alternator dodge did good on this one
not exactly perfect but its a good american car. i just have a question and was wondering if anyone knows how to install the rear main seals on the truck. i was told i had to drop my trany which im not to sure i have to go to that extreme. also my rear axle seal is broke. but i have that under control. please any inputs on the rear main seal.
after replacing the original tranny after 40,000 miles and a new engine after 128,000 its been a pretty good truck after 14 yrs, but i don't think i would buy another as i hear dodge seems to continue to have tranny problems. btw, the tranny i replaced now has a leak.
