I purshased my ram brand new in 2001. it has almost 200000 miles on it now. yes i did replace the trans at about 80000. since than dodge replace that trans with a better one. I just finished haulling 75 yards of stone for brick pavers for my house, and there wasnt a load under 1500 lbs. the biggest load was 2100 lbs. i new i had to replace the ball joints thats why i waited to replace them after. i have abuse my truck, hauling stuff, going up north, 4x4. It is a 4x4 package with a 360 engine. she is still running like a champ. (knock on wood) change oil every 3000 miles. 2 places on it has rust not bad for living in michigan. I understand the new rams are alot better. my 15 year old is going to have my ram and i am going for a new one. yes it will have a hemi.
