Hi all. - Me again -
Long time no see..I'm back to my roots..
Now, There comes a day, when it's time to say goodbye.
The old Yeller Rumbler wanna Bee is getting cranky.
250k on my old pride and joy, with no engine or tranny problems to date, must have been lucky.
But - Now I have a have a problem or 2 developing.
I have changed the TPS, and CPS, and now looking at the the fuel pump to be replaced.
This is where, for the first time, I'm seeing more dollars needing to be shed, - even though I have a degree in shade tree technology.
I work on the beach here in SE. Fla. building nice homes, and in the last 7 years I've been there, the salt air has stricken my Solar Ram with stage 5 cancer. It's a mess, hit a bump, shed a little weight here and there.
So now, I'm in the market for a good used Hemi Truck. Used, cause it's gonna be a beach baby for a while to come.
I have no idea how these newer Rams are behaving. Are they the same old Dodge - middle of the road quality ? fix it/upgrade it before, and not after.
Can anyone say which of the last few years have a better mechanical history?
I'm just looking for what I had before. - somewhat -
small cab, short bed - modifiable! hemi power - nothing fancy inside - no fancy tech -
I'll do the fixins'
anyone care to devulge?
