1997 Dodge Ram Pickup 2500 Laramie SLT 2dr Extended Cab 4WD LB


I have owned a 1997 dodge ram 2500 4x4 club cab with V10 since 2000. I had the engine replaced in in 1998 with 65,000 miles on it.
Presently the the truck 103000 and the engine has about 40000.
I have replaced or had rebuilt the following:
1. Engine
2. Rear end
3. Gas tank
4. Fuel pump
5. Front end rebuilt
6. New front clibers/bearings/and etc
7. Transmission rebuit
8. Water pump
9. New head liner
10. Numerous sensors
11. Several changes of tires - have 35" height tires. Changed motor mount twice
12. Next project alternator
13. Next project exterior paint job
14. It costs about $100.00 plus to fill the gas tank up in today market. Get 6-8 MPG.
My son has a 1995 3500 standard cab with V10
