    So uh...sticking this here in the garage...

    I'm thinking about running to queens a little later to look at a 94 Dodge Ram with a V6.

    He says it's "sluggish in reverse", needs a tune-up and TLC. 141k.
    It's $800... This would be a steal if I could find a tranny for under $1000. Any more than that, I might as well spend more on a better truck...
    Body is in exellent condition, not rust, no real bad paint.


    So anyone have any ideas?

    In most cases you will have between 1200-2300 in a dodge tranny. It sounds like a good deal on the truck but after you figure in the cost of the trans its not looking so good. As for the work to put it in its not to bad.. Just dont take the crossmember out. Its tappered and you will have a hard time getting it back in there. I found out the hard way.

    not to bad

    I pull these things and install these things all day they are not that bad. on avg. my shop does a remove rebuild install with a rebuilt torque converter for 1000 to 1500 dollars. If you pull it you can bring the cost way down. my shop does a "bench build" for 200 plus parts

    agreed, these are pretty easy to pull out of a 94 ram as well, 2wd is much easier then 4x4

    if you do this, be careful when removing ot that you don't hurt the crank sensor(on engine at the bellhousing, behind the pass side head) and don't pinch the wires upon reinstallation
