  1. Trailer lights & connectors

    2G Dodge RAM - General Talk
    I took an inventory of my junk & see that I have everything I need to make my own brake controller set up except for the controller itself. I'll run by the farm supply place tomorrow to grab one. I had some NOS wire harnesses from camper trailers that I'd packed home from an auction that I...
  2. Trailer lights & connectors

    2G Dodge RAM - General Talk
    I took a look under the truck today & see that the 4 wire connector harness was part of a factory made harness that plugged into each corner of the trucks tail light wiring (instead of just being hacked into the wires). All I have to do is unplug it & re-connect the connectors to eliminate the...
  3. Trailer lights & connectors

    2G Dodge RAM - General Talk
    My '95 truck had a 7 pin trailer connector built into the hitch. My recently acquired '99 just has a 4 wire flat connector. What do I need to convert the '99 to using the big 7 pin connector so I can use it on my car hauler trailer? thanks, Mike S
  4. Thermometer / compass module in overhead console

    2G Dodge RAM - Interior/Exterior Talk
    Where can I find the pages from the shop manual which show where the sensor is located so when I go to the junk yard to get a new console w/ thermometer, I can make sure I get all that I need? I'm getting tired of looking up only to see that silly garage opener box. thanks, Mike S
  5. Thermometer / compass module in overhead console

    2G Dodge RAM - Interior/Exterior Talk
    I just bought a '99 SLT & it only has the sunglasses / garage door opener holder. I'd like to add the Thermometer & compass. The questions are: Can I transfer the one out of my '95 SLT & if so, how much hassle? Where to find all the parts to install one? what parts do I need to find to do it...
  6. Regular cab trucks, get in here.

    2G Dodge RAM - Interior/Exterior Talk
    Only you young whipper snappers need those fancy sound systems & speakers.....I'm happy with the stock radio (when they work) in both my '95 & '99 twin trucks. I use the trays for stuff like rain X, rags, gloves, ice scrapers, etc, etc. Mike Sal
  7. Blinking Headlights???

    2G Dodge RAM - General Talk
    Tonight, while bringing the "new" '99 1500 home, my wife was following me in our "old" '95 1500. About 10 miles from home, the headlights started blinking off in random patterns....like an electrical connection going bad. We pulled over & put the lights on dim (they had been on brights) & were...
  8. Possible purchase of 99 1500

    2G Dodge RAM - General Talk
    Good or bad, we bought the truck. Both doors had had some flange rust in the bottoms & you can see where the previous owner attempted to fix it. The wheel wells have no rust or paint problems at all. The roof has a spot where the clear coat and paint have failed. The previous owner had put...
  9. Possible purchase of 99 1500

    2G Dodge RAM - General Talk
    ya, I was just going over the list of things I've done to the '95 since I've owned it.....starter, headlight switch, radio, water pump, transmission, headlights, rockers & cab corners, radiator, heater core, ......my dash has just now started to get a few tiny cracks. Both trucks are regular...
  10. Possible purchase of 99 1500

    2G Dodge RAM - General Talk
    I have a '95 SLT 4x4 that I've enjoyed driving over the years. It's still in good condition (replaced rockers, cab corners & bed side a couple years ago) but it's getting a lot of miles on it (218k). I'm starting to loose confidence in it's ability to keep up (especially the...
  11. Is it worth it to change?

    2G Dodge RAM - General Talk
    Years ago I worked in the engineering test lab for a company that made oil & air filters. They taught me that your engine sure likes to have oil pumping thru it as soon as possible. With a dry filter, it takes a couple seconds to pump oil into the filter & a few milliseconds longer to saturate...
  12. Poor Heater performance solved

    2G Dodge RAM - General Talk
    After putting up with virtually no heat at temps under 40 degrees for a couple years, I finally broke down & changed the heater core. Only slightly a pain in the arse to do. I cut the top off the old core & was surprised to see how clogged it was. One side was full of mud. I sure wish they...
  13. WTB: Dodge 1500 4x4 regular cab

    For Sale - Dodge Trucks
    Thought I'd throw this out there incase anyone knew of a real deal somewhere: Looking for a regular cab (or maybe extended cab...no 4 full size doors) Ram 1500. Must meet the following: 94 - 2001....red color / less than 100k miles / under $9k. 2003 - 2005....red color / less than 100k miles...
  14. Heater core poor performance

    2G Dodge RAM - Interior/Exterior Talk
    After watching the video, I looked under the dash of my '95 truck & the blend motor must be on top, as the only thing on bottom in the same area was a shaft sticking out of the bottom of the HVAC unit. When I turn the knob from hot to cold, the shaft does turn, so I assume that means the motor...
  15. Rebuilding a front end.

    2G Dodge RAM - General Talk
    You have to start with the frame. Make sure it's not tweaked or bent up or down. Check all the attachment brackets. If the frame is ok, then the rest is just taking off bent parts & putting on straight parts. make sure to gather up plenty of coffee cans or cut off milk jugs. If you don't...
  16. Heater core poor performance

    2G Dodge RAM - Interior/Exterior Talk
    Is there a good write up anywhere for the diagnosis of why my heater will only blow tepid (barely warm) air? At first I assumed the heater core was clogged up, and I actually bought a new one. But, I got to wondering if there could be some other explanation, such as a blend door not working...

    Hmmmm.....no one have any experience with aftermarket cruise units? I see they are available for around 200 bucks.
  18. no cruise control on my 97 dodge ram 1500 5.9 2 wheel drive

    agree that the vacuum line under the battery tray is a known failure mode. Mine quit for this reason last year. The line was so rotten I had to replace about 12 inches of it. Mike Sal
  19. SLT vs non SLT modle features

    2G Dodge RAM - General Talk
    I'm looking at upgrading trucks. My '95 1500 4x4 slt has 215k on it, but still looks pretty good. I have found an '01 truck which identical to my truck (same color & body), but it is not an SLT. It only has 70k & looks as good or better than mine. Roll up windows is not a big deal, but I...

    2G Dodge RAM - Interior/Exterior Talk
    The chrome on the grill on my '95 1500 is starting to wrinkle & peel. Where is the best deal on a replacement? thanks, Mike S
