1994-1996 were bad years for anything chemical and cosmetic for Rams. (Paint for many Chrysler vehicles)

Story as I understand it is that the EPA set new guidelines for additives in paint and interior plastics. This caused Chrysler to change their formulas and gave us the notorious problems we have with the paint and the non-UV protected interior plastics. They aren't safety related, so there never was a recall and it's something that we just deal with.

If you're looking to repaint the truck the same color, you might be able to find cheaper alternatives, but know that the quality will go down as the price does. If you want a different color, they'll have to sand everything and take it apart...way more pricey.
