It's amazing how people find these older trucks in such good condition, and with camper shells on them.
I have a 2nd generation Ram 50, Mitch, so I can't add any information, but did want to congratulate you on a nice find, and give a warm welcome to the forum.
Well thank you royster. I was impressed on the condition of it when i first seen it. I cant wait to start fixing it up.
Welcome, 2.0 are pretty solid besides being a little sluggish. Make sure both timing belts and ALL pulleys and tensioners are in good cond.

I hope this little truck will pull my riding mower on a 5'x 8' trailer....
'Got the '90 over to the garage today, no small feat. I did it alone. I had to roll it down the driveway (on its own gravitational power) then across the creek, where I had to pull it up an incline with the F-150 make a sharp right-hand pivot, (back and forth, back and forth...in the mud) then towed it 400 feet (20 feet at a time, to adjust the steering) to the garage with my F-150. The last 20 feet I actually towed it with my riding mower That must have been a sight to see: the riding mower pulling forward with no one at the wheel, and me at the caboose-end of all this, pushing the truck. But all I had to do to stop the mower was quit pushing the truck. Might have looked funny, but got the job done.
In carpentry, a helper can often be replaced by a well-placed nail. I adapt this thinking to automotive endeavors, too.
Lol... i have had to do that with a 92 chevy s10.
