first diesel

by NCC from st. paul mn | March 19, 2012

2500 4X4, quad cab, diesel. This trucks engine will go forever with proper fluid and filter changes. I am currently in the process of rebuilding the transmission as they tend to fail if left stock and can not handle much power above stock. another required upgrade is a new fuel system to properly supily fuel to the VP44 injection pump. it is lubricated by the fuel alone so any drop in pressure or excess water/air in the lines will cause premature failure. the axles and transfer case are solid but the rear end limited slip is a ratchet design and tends to fail after 200K miles or so. to this end i recommend installing a select able locker or for cheap you can remove the limited slip clutch plates and install spider gears converting it into an open diff for cheap. the calipers are single piston where as the 01+ models are dual piston. as its a 2500 it has very hard suspension but i intend to replace this with a thuren fabrication suspension system with variable compression coils to make a softer road ride. the engine bay does not have much extra room so installing any on engine equipment such as air compressors or welders is difficult but you can replace the alternator mount to give you just enough clearance to install a yourk ac compressor to drive air tools above it. these trucks will not get up and go from a stop like a gas will but they will pull your house down at idle... it is very common for these trucks to have issues shifting at highway speeds. mine locks and unlocks the torque converter rapidly between 40-50Mph causing lots of jerking and speratic RPM jumps. this was caused by the ground wire from the tourq converter being to close to the alternator and the EMI sending the wrong signals causing random locks. this is fixed by wrapping it in tin foil and moving it out of the way of the alternator. all in all i bought this as a project truck and it is running great for work. i love rams as they are so easy to work on and find parts for. also you can fit 35" tires on it with out any lift and a 2-3" lift can fit 37. if you have a wide tire then a rim with a -12mm off set or greater will give your control arms clearance room while at full steering lock.
