SHOPPING for another low mileage RAM 2500:

What year Rams should we avoid?

I was hoping to get 200,000 miles out of our 2004.5 but
it is starting to nickel and dime us; ECM, Injectors, Fuel Pump, U-Joints, Ball
Joints, Bearings plus the usual batteries, muffler and so on.

When we were towing our RV; folks on the road used to tell
us not to upgrade due to the poor fuel mileage of the new RAM Diesels.

What year Rams should we avoid?

Thank you in advance for your suggestions.


2012 RAM 3500 ST + CHROME
