Default time to pass the 98 down...picking up my new one tomorrow

I'm getting an 04 Laramie quad cab 2x2. Decided to keep the old truck and get her running right again. My son will be 16 next January so I figure he and I can get some of the small things fixed so he can have it when he gets his license. I'm pretty excited about the whole thing myself!

That's great! Stepping in to the 3rd generation of Rams will be a most excellent experience. And then have a ball getting the 98 ready with your son. I'm thinking he's really going to appreciate that. And, he'll have an understanding of the truck so he'll be able to work on it when it decides to act up. Good luck and have fun. Post some pics of the new ride.

That's what I told him. She's temperamental to say the least! Really the only problems are a small oil leak, seems to run to hot in the summer and the vac line causes the a/c to blow through the defroster under a load. Oh yeah...and that pesky rear axle bearing... Lol! Should be a fun year or so! I will have pics of the new one tomorrow if I can.
