Just bought a 91 W250 that I'll be driving daily. Has a 360, OD transmission, and 4x4 (CAD front axle).
My question is, what are some common parts that fail on these trucks? I'd like to have some spares on hand so I don't get left stranded. I know the older Dodge's blew resistor blocks like mad.
My inventory list so far :
- temporary fan belt (duct tape)
- a few spark plug wires
- vacuum hose
- zip ties
- socket set
- tow strap
Any pointers are appreciated.

A bikini is an outfit where 90% of a woman's body is exposed. The amazing fact is that men are so decent, they only look at the 10% that isn't. 2003 Ram 1500 4x4
i dont that model well. but if it has the reg electronic ignition that has a white ballast resistor. get 2 spair and put them in the glove box. at the first NO start just swap out the ballast first. hot and cold weather make the trouble worse.
thats good to know. i am sure the trucks and car are diff on which ones have resistors. my 77 dodge 1/2 ton had resistor. and my 84 ply car did not. when i had the 77 twk i was walking to work. and it sat for 3 days with water and freezing coming down when it did not start my factory service manual had me check the resistor FIRST. the water ran behind the resistor and froze, breaking the resistor. after that i just let it hang out in the open. i have even been known to have extras bolted near by. a regular OHM meter is all you need, to check it.
