Default Any issues with a 98 Ram 4x4 steering?

My first post. My son is looking at buying a 98 Ram 1500 with 4x4. I see from searching the web that it has a solid front axle setup, with a Dana 44 I believe. The solid axle concerns me a bit as each wheel cannot react to bumps, etc. independently. My question is--how do these trucks typically steer? Any usual problems? I heard about the dodge truck death wobble and that scares me, if it applies to this year of 4x4. Should I be concerned about death wobble?
Your experience with the steering and suspension issues on this year of truck would be greatly appreciated. Thanks.
