I had a 2003 Ram 1500 quad cab ST and was the original owner. Right after 36000 miles the problems were coming every three months. I went through a steering rack, steering lines, steering pump, a/c compressor, two rear ends and a transfer case before it hit 69000 miles. It was fun to drive when it did run but it cost me a fortune to keep her going. The only bright side of the truck was the brakes didn't fail on me. I drove this truck a whole lot easier than my ranger and that took twice the punishment. I am now an owner of a trouble free Silverado and I am much happier with GM than I ever was with Dodge. I vow to never buy another Ram again.
