problem #1

Dec 112008

Ram 3500 HD 5.9L Diesel

  • Automatic transmission
  • 122,000 miles

Repair shop said the 3500 uses different ones than the 2500. The carrier bearing is almost $300 alone. Total cost = 1 day in the shop and 3 heavy duty U-Joints and 1 heavy duty carrier bearing...$700 Other option....1 match free, gallon of gas $2 = no more money into this truck! Well over $8k in repairs over the last 5 months...no warranty available since I have too many miles on it now...Stay clear of Dodge Trucks!
