    Newbie

    I bought a 1984 ram 50 custom. 2.0l auto. 95,000 miles. new waterpump, shocks tires, and brakes.

    body is straight and rust free.

    bought for $1500

    this is my first one of these.

    is there any common problems among these trucks?

    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.

    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.

    As a funny note of truth, I once pulled my little truck with my riding mower

    '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.
