Give it time, it'll develop some charm.
It is my first ever ownership of new construction.
Would love to feel this feel one day.

I will do that now that I can actually have fun. I feel this was sort of whimsical on your part. Your moves are usually much more calculated.
Only when the calculations involve measuring the precise amount of lean chicken to put into the blender.

Found the 1999 brochure for the Ram Vans - 5.2 was standard on the 3500 with the 5.9 being optional. You've got a 35 gallon fuel tank standard, :doe: Is the hitch a factory part or aftermarket - may be equipped with the optional towing package (aux trans oil cooler, uprated alternator, and more eng...

I had that thought as well.. I should be able to find something with fewer miles on it too. Caution...the smog folks will run the VIN and know what engine it's supposed to have. They will absolutely check to make sure it's the same. If you swap it to something different, you need to jump through ho...

She gave me a folder of records from the previous owner. Looks like in 2019 he replaced the alternator, tensioner pulley, battery, and a few other things. Passed smog checks from the last few years, so hopefully getting it to passing condition is easy/cheapish and no more than the $2k she said she ...

You can get a obd2 scanner for $50 which is cheaper than any shop diagnosis. Post up the codes and we can walk you through it from here. :dat: My biggest struggles with smog were the dumb things like evap systems and whatnot.

Not sure, I didn’t look to see which engine it had when I popped the hood. Was just listening for anything weird, looking at belts and shit, seemed okay, sounded like it ran smooth.

Anyone want to/able to run the VIN for me?

Did not pass smog, that $2k quoted bill is why she sold it, didn’t want to put money into it. So hopefully fixing it isn’t actually more than the $2k. I’ll get it into a shop for a diagnosis in the next few days and report back with the issue and if it’s something I can tackle myself. You can get a...
