About Dodge Ram 1500
The Ram is a full-size pickup truck manufactured by Stellantis. Previously, Ram was part of Dodge's light truck lineup. Dodge began using the Ram name on 1981 model year trucks in October 1980, following the recall and repainting of the D and B series vans, although the company had used the Ram name on the hoods of some trucks since 1933. The Dodge Ram 1500 had both a short and long bed in the regular and extended cab. The Ram 2500 had only a long bed in the regular and extended cab. And the Ram 3500 had only a long bed in both cabs. Models without full instrumentation had only indicator lights but no temperature or oil pressure gauges. As with all vehicles, parts wear out, and you need to replace them.

The Ram model had bumpers, sliding rear windows, air conditioning, and cruise control. Dodge offered the 2500 model line in the early years with two GVWR options, but that offering was later eliminated. The 2500 Light and 2500 Heavy differed in that the 2500 Heavy was to replace the canceled RWD trucks. In late 1998, Dodge introduced a redesigned front end for 1999 Sport models, with redesigned bumpers, a quad headlight cluster with clear glass, and a body-color grille. In late 2000, for the 2001 model year, a six-speed manual transmission was offered as an option for diesel models. A small number of 1999 and 2000 diesel models had problems with the water jacket and fuel injectors. The most problematic was engine block 53. It had a defect that caused cracks in the block structure itself.

Although Dodge introduced the new Dodge Ram 1500 in 2002, the old second-generation Ram design was carried over to the 2500 and 3500 trucks for the 2002 model year. The new third-generation Ram 2500/3500 would not be introduced until 2003. One of the reasons for the delay was that the new Hemi engine was not ready for production. The NP231 and NP231HD were available in 1500 versions. The NP241 was standard on Ram vehicles with the 2500 cc V8 engine. The V10 and 2500, and 3500 cc diesel engines were standard on the NP241DLD from 1993 through 1997. In 1997, the NP241DHD was offered as an option on the Ram 2500. And it was standard on the Ram 3500 from 1998 to 2002. The wearable parts of your car should be inspected and maintained regularly so that your vehicle stays healthy and safe to drive.
