How can you tell if you have a clogged cat or a bad o2 sensor? I have 80K miles on my 99 ram sport and wondering if either of those 2 could be bad?

A higher percentage of older Dodge trucks are still on the road than older Fords and Chevy's...... granted fewer were sold to begin with but if you look at the numbers, they don't lie: the Dodge's last longer.

That's what I try to tell friends! They just seem to think that going with the crowd is best for them, while I am enjoying the feeling of knowing my truck will start every time and last decades to come!

The other falacy about Dodge trucks is resale value. When shopping for my Ram, every freakin' dealer kept steering me to Ford and Chevy for the price I was looking for.

Dodge resale is better than ever, ford has gone down a bit, and GM has gone down BIG Time.

I like the truck (98 Ram 1500 360 Auto) as far as ride and comfort go. It does push snow pretty good too. I just think they could build em a bit tougher. I've had to do the tranny, and both differentials this year, front axle u joints, twice in two years, and that freekin intake plenum cover plate... wtf? That is about as cheezy a thing I ever saw.

To get from 99,000 miles to 126,000 miles has cost me about 6 grand in repairs.

Yup, nice looking, nice riding, decent power, not very tough overall.

Its harder on a truck when you push snow with it, its not a bulldozer you should expect breakdowns when it goes through that! Anyway mines got 124,752 and all ive had to fix was Radiator, and Plenum.

152,000 miles on my 98 1500 QuadCab 4x4. It is great in the snow (used to commute 90 miles a day and have seen a few good storms here lately) even in 2wd. Shift into 4HI and there's no issue what so ever!

I still get compliments on it even though it's 7 years old. It's got great lines, strong engines, and is built LIKE A TRUCK - not a car!

Only issues - front brake wear and that @#$%-ing plenum gasket (that I have to change again...)

Good luck with the paper

Dodge Trucks are built good and heavy duty. They well thought-out in terms of the placement of things like oil filter and certain sensors. You don't have to contort your body in stupid positions to reach components.
