Thanks for all the advice guys.
The 99 I tried out wasnt for me (too ruff). The reason I asked about the trans is it seems everyone I look at with over 100k has a rebuilt or new trans. I really want a strait drive but it seems to be impossible to find in an extended cab. Did they make a 1500 360 strait drive????
Anywho, still on the hunt, and it will be a Dodge, unless I run across a early 70's/late 60's Ford 4x4 for the right price (I love those trucks!) (please dont flame me for the last comment)
08 Ram Laramie- Gone but not forgotten
99 Ram- lots of future plans on this one!
