After first seeing the new ´94 design, I just had to buy it. 15 years and 105k miles, it´s still very dependable. Have replaced water pump, brakes at about 60k, master cylinder, and recently the starter. Other than that, regular maintenance has kept it running well. Plus, I´ve babied it, never hauled anything. Of course, the paint started peeling. I spent about 10 hours with sand paper and some $20 worth of paint from autozone and it looks presentable. Dash is cracked and have replaced cupholder. All in all, a very dependable truck for quite a while. I still get 15mpg 80% freeway driving with the 5.9l 360 cu.in. engine.
looks, high ride, power, dependability, strong AC (live in AZ), safe ride
Better paint, take a look at any Ram from these years and you´ll see LOTS of peeling
