My '96 Ram 1500 2WD had 240,000+ miles when I sold it - I put a left front wheel bearing (old style - $15.00), ball joints and a tie-rod end at around 230,000.
My '03 Ram 1500 Laramie that I bought a year and a half ago w/58,000 miles on it - left front wheel hub assembly at 73,000. Replaced right front wheel hub assembly at 85,000. Now at 106,000, I'm about to have the rear end rebuilt, I've got a MASSIVE oil consumption problem - which I suspect is the dreaded plenum gasket, and a vigorous coolant leak - which I'm hoping is just the water pump.

Can I please get my '96 back!?!?!?

4500ish mile now issues as of yet last ram i was able to run it up to 140k or so traded it in, the ram before that i ran up 80k traded it in, and the one before that around 80k and traded it in as well, i have never had any major issues with any of them just everyday maintenance

And i am not very nice to the ones ive had in the past, my current truck i am nice to though...for now anyways lol.
