Looking at purchasing a 94-96 ram, probably a 1500 with the 318. I like the looks way more than a ford or chev, but was told they have reliability problems. Any common problems i should be aware of? What's the difference between 1500 and 2500? I know 1500 is a half tonne, and 2500 is 3/4. I may have to tow a bobcat once in a while, can a 1500 handle it? Any help will be greatly appreciated. Hows gas mileage?
