Default Lowest mileage

My 1996 SLT ram 4x4 5.2 has just turned over 90,000 miles. Bought it brand new with 21 miles on it on Labor Day weekend in 1995 for around 20k. 18 years old and garage kept the whole time, so why am I thinking about buying a 2014 2500 Laramie 4x4 for a MSRP of $53,000 when the truck I already have which looks almost new and in truck terms of 90k mileage is just a baby itself. I must be out of my mine, have way to much money to spend or either I just love the thought of driving that big 2500 Ram turning heads. Get a Ram before one gets you!!!

When I had to put her down, she (95 Ram 5.2 Short-bed,reg-cab,4x4) had 289k on her. Had a cracked head, or gasket, putting water in the oil for the last 150k! I thought "how much longer can She last?" COD? (cause-of-death), tranny failure due to something I did. Not her fault. This is how I felt!

I have a 99 regular cab with a 318. My grandpaw bought it for me my senior year. It has 220000 on it and the only thing I've ever had to do to it is change the water pump.

Thumbs up

It's been 2 1/2 years since last post on this thread. 01 ram just hit 132,000m just had first tranny rebuild . Motor is great this year I've had to replace crank sensor , radiator, throttle position sensor, governor pressure sensor and transducer before the rebuild. She's running good next on the list is the plenum gasket. Mpg around 11 mostly city suck ass traffic in Baltimore . Was getting 12 think the plenum gasket is the culprit of the slack off . She's a runner hasn't left me stranded in the 3 years I've had it.

Just turned 200k on my 1998 Ram 1500 4x4 318 5spd. Bought it new and a month or two later put Flowmaster exhaust, k&n filter, and centerline hellcats on it. At the first interval changed everything to Mobil 1 synthetic. Changed oil every 5000 runs great. I replaced water pump, timing chain etc about 165000, clutch at 135k. Getting ready for a new clutch now.

Well I'm happy to report ramfam 01 has 198,000. And counting. My last report was aug 2011 at 135,000 she's still my toy and still fun. Went through belt alt and two vacuum lines in my almost 3 years. Not bad I say for driveing 90 plus miles a day. As for mods so far jus tb mod and drop in air cleaner is all that's. Been done. Kind of concentrateing on. My 8.2
