Hey all,

New to the forums & picking up a 99 Ram V-10 4X4 by the end of this week or beginning of next.

Had a 96 Ram 318 & to be completely honest (I mean no offense to the other folks around here) but I hated it, it was slow as all hell & had no power at all! But then again, motor could have been really tired...

1996 ram 1500 4x2

replaced complete drivetrain 1500 miles ago.
with a complete jasper setup
the original setup had 265,545 miles on it
it was tired since i use it for a business i wanted to make sure it would last.
if i would have realized how much money i was going to sink into it when i purchased it a year ago i would have bought new.

$12,000

a new ram 1500 4 door 4wheel drive is going for 14,995 at a local dealer

Got a 318 MAG in a 98 4WD and I'm wondering how well the 318 magnum holds up to the old 318 as for as durability and dependability?

mine has shown a lot of both.

360 here as well- all stock except K&N filter element. I love it. More power than I need most of the time.
