lets list all our problems. don't be shy..lol i'll go first.

cracked dash (like an inch or 2 long)
driver's side door panel is very loose (sev clips must be broke)
front bumper pad is loose(even with a new bumper, pad & all...lol)
one cargo light is broke (did this yesturday trying to change the bulb)
crappy tires (curb rash & very uneven wear)
scratches & dings everywhere..i think i get a new one everyday
hella lights aren't hooked up (too lazy)
broke cupholder (one of the tabs broke & its barely hanging on)
vent broke...the adjustment knob broke.
its a sluggish hesitating pig...it'll be fine for a few days then its back to being a slug
ride is hell...due to crappy tires...too crap to rotate & balance & i don't feel like getting a new set of $600 plus tires for a worn out beaten up truck

just a couple things.

All the "problems" that my ram has...
can fixed by a simply application of
CASH!
So the problem(s) is/are not the truck,
but lack of funding.
Lack of funding=disrepair
and/ or compromising by purchasing poorly
fitting parts from non factory suppliers.

Power windows are deathily slow to go up
California Pinstripes on 90% of body (result of jeep trails)
cracked grill (rocks)
bent bumpers front and back (rocks)
exhaust leak (rust and rocks combined)
one front control arm has a large dent (rocks)

But none of these issues bother me that much cause theyre like battle scars. (except the windows..)

And now, steering box is leaking like a sieve at both shaft seals. I put steering fluid made by Prestone that specifically says it is for Dodge and I think it ate the seals.:mad:

I saw the post but can't access pics for some reason. I can't tell you how aggravating this is. I was always a Ford guy but got tired of fixing those trucks. My Dad had a 99 Ram with a Cummins and never had any problems with it so I bought this one kind of by his gushing over how great the trucks are.
