    Hello Dodge guys,

    I am considering a 93 1 ton,SC, 4x4 ,cummins, auto just wondering the obvious Dodge issues that I should pay attention to.
    I am aware of the basics,rust,front end,Transmission etc but is there anything these Dodges are especially know for???.
    I am looking for a good basic everyday work/play truck without a payment book.

    A518 -46RH/RE automatic transmission.
    Steering shaft will wear the cup quickly. $70 to repace from mopar or $225 permint fix from bogerson... the CTD option got you the upgrade to, the NP 205 transfer case and Dana 60 fornt and rear (that take a serious beating) Front end issues are on the Dana 44 CAD only not the Dana 60.

    only other issues would be mantince type things seals joints in the axles, U-joints, brakes, tires...

    I have a 88 CTD 1 ton it just truned 400,000 miles Body is rough but it still runs like the day i got (a little over 100,000 miles)

    Just watch out for the front end and steering components. I had an old Ram (non diesel) that had about 2" of play in the steering wheel. It was SCARY to drive that thing.
