History
Bought new. Ordered from John Lee Dodge FT walton bch, FL, in Jan 1996.

Great vehicle, first repair was this yr, a rusted brake line replaced, and a clutch upgrade/replacement (after 300,000 miles!). The starter brushes were replaced yrs ago with the proper cummins brushes (replaced the filed down brushes Chrysler nstalls to make the starter only last through warranty period, which it did, barely. 6 months after warranty expired, and 12,000 miles after it expired starter failed to turn. After disassembly the brushes were ground down to less than 1/2 the size of the holders where they contact the armature of the starter "motor". That was about a 3 hour repair (PITA to remove the 3rd bolt! on the starter, ) and 30 bucks for the Cummins full size brushes. That was 15 yrs ago and 150,000+ miles ago... SHocks were replaced as was the steering rod (Borgeson, A arm bearings, and idler arm/pittman arm to reduce slop in steering..16 yrs ago.
