99,082 and running good.01' Ram 1500 SLT Long bed Laramie 2WD w/5.9.Just changed out the original plugs/wires/cap/coil a month ago.Plenum still holding strong and zero oil loss between changes(every 3000 to 5000 miles.)Best truck I have ever owned so far hands down as far as build quality and dependability.I more than likely jinxed myself by posting this.

2001 5.9l 4x4 Sport. About 101,000. Rebuilt tranny a few months back, but beefed it up with HD shift kit and some diesel parts. Pulls my horse trailer great. Other than that, I fixed a couple minor leaks in the rear end.

98 Ram 1500 4x4 5.9, 170k

Probably shorter to just list what I haven't replaced (alot due to wear and tear), but here's some of what I have done:

VSS 80k
Repair hole in transfer case (random, never even had it off road, t-case just had a piece missing) 100k
Trans 118k
Oil pump 96k
Oil pump 130k (avoid autozone if at all possible)
Alternator 140k
Timing set, water pump 160k
IAC 160k
Track bar 165k
Computer 165k
Steering gear 169k


Needs:
Plenum gasket, but F it for now
Dash is cracked up like a Compton bum
Driver's seat is flatter than Kate Hudson

Now don't get me wrong, I like this truck and it's worth more to me to keep it than to sell it or get something else, especially now that I know how to replace everything on it. Right now, it drives really well and I enjoy it alot. They sure are pretty too. But, I also have a 98 4Runner with 165k and here's my list of repairs on it:

U-joint 150k $75

That's it. The only thing.

Ouch.

1998 Ram 1500 SLT Laramie 5.2L auto with 131,700 miles. So far it needs a plenum job and a rear main. Also, I have to find the reason the dang I.O.D. fuse keeps blowing up on me.

Thats awesome and I don't know why she wouldn't go for it. I thought women like candles...I guess not when you line every wall in the house with them. ANyways back on topic.

2001 Dodge Ram Sport 4x2 5.2L, I bought the truck with 166,000 miles. I've had it a little over 2 months and now it has 167,800 miles and nothing as of yet. I believe the plenum most likely needs to be done. The previous owner took very good care of it and replaced the tranny even though it didn't need it at 120,000 miles just in case so the tranny is solid. He also replaced the heater core. Completely replaced the front brakes; i.e. rotors, pads, lines everything. Also replaced the whole front assembly. The rear differential has some dirt caked on it so it might have a very minor leak there and that is basically stopping it because I can leave the truck parked for 3-4 days and there are no spots under the trucks of leaks or anything. I'm sure there will be basic maintenance to come later down the road since I plan on driving this thing into the ground. I bought the truck to be a work truck and to have as a daily for me since I let my fiancee drive my 09' Mitsubishi Lancer Evolution. I bought the truck for $2,000 so I'm not upset at all. Overall I'm happy with the truck, it gets the job done of going from point A to B
