    Got my new truck, used actually but new for me, 1995 ram 2500 4X4, 8' BED, AUTO cummins, 46,xxx miles one owner before me.

    Here are a few options listed in the vin print and I just wanted to know everyone's opinion on the list and if there are any things I should be careful or aware of, etc,etc... SUCH AS un-usual options ordered, etc..

    Also, would like some clarification on exactly what they include (parts,etc..)

    ADJS HEAVY DUTY SERVICE PACKAGE

    AHC TRAILER TOW PREP PACKAGE

    AHD SNOW PLOW PREP PKG. H-D

    AHDS HEAVY DUTY INSULATION PACKAGE

    BANS 50/120 AMP ALTERNATOR

    BKBS rear brake 13X2.5

    DGB STD DUTY 4SPD AUTO TRANS

    DGYS 4SPD AUTO TRANS 47RH

    DHAS CC TORQUE CONVERTOR

    DHGP TRANSFER CASE 241 - HEAVY DUTY

    DJFS 4850# FRONT AXLE (DANA 60F)

    DMF 4.0/ 4.1 AXLE RATIO

    DRES REAR AXLE-SPICER 70

    DSA LIMITED SLIP DIFF.

    NHBP HVY DTY/ AUX TRANS OIL COOLER

    NHKS ENGINE BLOCK HEATER

    NMCP MAX ENGINE COOLING

    SFBS HVY DTY SHOCKS/ STRUTS FRONT

    SGBS HVY DTY SHOCKS REAR

    SHAS SWAY BAR- FRONT


    Also I've had installed a set of heavy duty timbrens in the rear of the vehicle. I was under the impression that they replaced something under the bed, such as factory stops, but these are bolted to the axle I believe with large u bolts, etc.. and a metal thing. Is this a normal setup or???

    I currently have a fisher 8' with snow foil on the front and just picked up a fisher spreader with in cab controls and the tecumseh (spelling) gasoline engine.

    Any opinions on max load, ability of this vehicle, etc???

    Sorry for the long post but since there is such a wealth of information out there, I wanted to be specific with the options list.

    Thanks very much for taking the time to read this post.
