The Ram 3500, a heavy-duty pickup from the Ram Trucks brand, is known for its impressive capabilities. Originally marketed under Dodge Ram until 2010, this model debuted in 1972 as a refreshed version of the D series trucks. Adopting Chrysler's AD platform, it was offered in three types: a 2-door standard, a 2-door extended, and a 4-door crew cab, with a club cab featuring foldable jump seats added later. Engine choices included a 3.9L V6, a 5.2L V8, or a 5.9L V8, mated to either a 3-speed or 4-speed Torqueflite automatic transmission. A 1994 redesign gave the 3500 a big-rig truck appearance, with a prominent front grille, and enhanced interior storage space with a large glove box, additional armrest storage, and extra room behind the seats. The dashboard and instrument cluster were also revamped. The 1998 3500 model offered both 2-wheel and 4-wheel drive options, and introduced an 8.0L V10 as an alternative to diesel engines. It featured various axles, including a unique front solid axle. The latest engine options include a 5.7L Hemi V8 with 390 horsepower, a 4.7L V8 with 310 horsepower, and a 3.7L V6 offering 215 horsepower.
The Ram 3500, widely used by contractors and farmers for long-distance transportation of heavy goods, often encounters specific common problems due to its heavy workload. The most frequent is transmission failure, manifested by difficulty shifting gears, inaccurate shift indicator readings, grinding noises emanating from the vehicle's underside, and the illumination of the Check Engine Light. If your Ram 3500 exhibits these symptoms, it may be advisable to inspect the transfer case shim or seal, automatic transmission shifter, transmission pan, or shift cable. Additionally, Ram 3500 owners have reported suspension issues, like excessive vibrations or abnormal noises, and electrical problems, such as difficulties in starting the vehicle and visible corrosion on the battery terminals. These could likely be rectified by replacing the drive shaft and battery cable. Lastly, the wiper pivot, a component that aids the windshield wiper in providing a clear driver's vision, often wears out concurrently with the windshield wiper or wiper blade due to harsh usage conditions. Therefore, if your windshield wiper's performance deteriorates, the issue might be with the wiper pivot.
