Vehicle: 1996 Dodge Ram Pickup 1500 Laramie SLT 2dr Regular Cab LB

I love my truck I have 215,000 miles on it now and I expect to at least see 300K. It has been very dependable and comfortable even on 34 hr straight through road trips stoping only for gas and coffee. I have over loaded it many times and it just keeps powering on. I don't have 4x4 but I have only been stuck once that I needed help to get out of. That says alot because I am not the smartest about where I shouldn't be able to go. She just keeps me looking like I know exacaly what I am doing and we keep on trucking.
