Question 1998 dodge ram issues

hey guys, i just picked up my 98 dodge ram 1500 4x4 ext cab (white) for 3500 bucks. she is lifted 4 inchs on the suspension and has 35x12.50x15s on her. not to bad right? Dual exhaust w/ angle dumpouts and a power programmer.

HERES THE PROBLEMS:

im not sure what kind of synthetic oil to use on her.. im sure she has some decent wear on the bearing so i didnt know what good weight i shoudl use 20w50? ??????????

There is a Power Programmer on the truck which i want to take off but have no clue how to cause i dont have the programmer.. ?????????


* if you havent noticed i wanna be lifted looking sexy but get decent gas mileage. i took the tires off and sold them on criagslist so im back to stock size and stock rim but ima get a 285 instead of a 265 series tire..

PLEASE HELP!!!!!! thanks alot guys.

What? Stock tires with a 4" lift, and you want to DE-program her? Blasphemy I tell you! Just kidding. Welcome to RamForumZ!!! I am sure the dealer could flash her back, for a price of course.

New to the Z for Rams myself . Welcome . Honestly you'll probably get better gas mileage with the programmer being left on . It moves the timing more advanced which in turn better power and mileage . If you've taken the big meats off at least take the big liftoff . You can put a small lift on it and still make it look good .
