Default New guy!! glad to find the site

I own a 95 2WD 318 reg cab 1500 5 speed truck. I have three loves in my life (4 actually girlfriend of course). My others are my 86 European BMW 318i and motor swapped 87 325 BMW E30. I love my ram and looked for it for close to a year. Requirements were stick, V8, reg cab and short bed. She has been my DD and tow truck for close to 4 years now. The truck is loward 4" and I swapped in an SST rear and wheels.

Tonight, I let a friend borrow her to pick up his girl friend in Easton PA. On the way home the trans went out and now I am in need of a trans and know guys on here can help out.

(she is spray painted flat black out of preference. please do not be mad)

That looks sick! Sucks about the tranny though! Looks almost like my SS/T! Welcome!

Thanks man!! I love the rat rod look so I tried my best on a budget.

The trans was showing issues when I dropped it, it took a couple of years but I was towing a lot of old BMW's so this truck owes me nothing.

I am a picky Mopar lover, I have had a handful of 70's mopars and sold only due to finances. The ram was acceptable because I inexpensively modded it and still towed my other project cars.

My understanding is the trans is common with jeeps etc. Any help or criticism is excepted. I didn't know this site existed or else I would have joined 4 years ago.

Yeah work with what you have! I love it's stance, its aggressive.

Yeah... Unfortunately we got the P.O.S tranny you love to hate. When mine had a problem, it just needed a flush and fluid change, it was slipping a bit. But if yours is toast, well I'm not experienced enough to know that. There are some guys on here who have had to replace theirs and I'm sure they will get to you a.s.a.p

I am going to guess you have an SST? nice! I wanted but needed a stick so I am a follower at this point. I was not sure if this site is more 4WD guys but I am hoping we all can make room

We take all types here, we only discriminate agains the people with BLUE trucks Love the flat black look, no matter what others may say.

Alex, do you know if there's a better tranny you guys can upgrade to? Or are you stuck with trying to rebuild the existing 'p.o.s.'?

HAHA well it was blue...

Thanks for the welcome. Glad I am welcome by the 4 by guys too.

Checkin around the 2WD trucks are less. We will just have to start a cult. This part of PA really does not see snow and with the SST posi rear I can have fun in the wet or dry... until tonight

Hey there glad to have ya on the Z . Welcome . Sorry to hear about your tranny problems . Did you say your ride had a 5 speed . I don't know how far your from Philly . I am in Baltimore Md. I occasionally use a junk yard in Philly that has a good inventory and excellent prices . Just checked for a 5 speed for a 95 ram 2wd . Looks like they have one . I have had great success with their products they sell .Thats why I go almost 3 hours away to buy their parts . It's worth it to me . You can check their inventory on line . They have one with 114,000 miles on it for $675.00 . Heres their website . http://www.alsautopa.com/parts.htm . If I can help let me know . Good luck and talk to ya soon . Tom
