    Took a test drive of a 2003 laramie 2500 5.7L 121,000km / 75185miles today, very nice truck, good price, but it had an alarming issue with selecting a specific gear in a certain way. the problem being that when it was in neutral, and id throw it in reverse you could hear a loud bang. you could feel it through the truck cab!. does anyone knopw what this could be and is this something easily fixed or should i stay the fugg away from it!
    thanks in advance for your help :waving:

    Well all I can say is just hope it's really bad u joints.........that would be the cheapest fix.
