Default What I did to my99 Ram

I had the oil changed to synthetic; Mobile 1, bought new tires for her and new wiper blades. As this 'old' truck is new to me we went to DMV to get the registration switched over and new plates, topped off with fuel.
Drives better with the new tires as the old tires had sidewall cracks and leaked air which made the steering not so smooth. I feel better having fresh rubber on the truck. This truck has 100k on it and I'm hoping that I won't have to many problems. I drive like and 'Old Lady" which I am so no 'hot dog'n' or donuts nor boony hop'n either. Why this truck you say ? I will live on a rough dirt road outside of Tucson and the road would tear up a car and most small trucks.

I haven't posted in a while or really done anything to my truck, but I went ahead and ordered new EBC Sport rotors and EBC Green stuff pads for it, Figured it's good of a time as any.

Installed a black Bull Bar which took most of the afternoon trying to figure out the way Ram installed the splash guard so it could be removed and slotted for a tight fit. Thanks to my mechanic friend it went very fast after that.

Flushed the radiator, which from the look of it was never done, filled the freon, changed the oil, cleaned the air intake manifold (yuck!), new distributor cap and rotor, new spark plugs and wires, and the real cherry of the day, I found out the last guy had stripped the number three spark plug, but I'll deal with that later.

Drove 485 miles round trip to Kemah Beach Boardwalk and Galveston Island and back with the wife and kids. Bought my RAM 3 days ago and just wanted to check her out.
Great truck 390HP 4x4 and I got 18.2 MPG on the highway coming and going
