Default 01 Dodge Ram Good Truck?

Considering trying out a Dodge for my next truck. Just curious on what types of problems anyones ran into with 99 - 03 Dodge Ram 1500 trucks? And what should I look out for when buy a truck of those model years? I've heard they have pretty crappy transmissions, but curious on other oppinions.

Truck I'm looking at is an 01 Dodge 1500 5.2L with the 5 speed manual. 136k miles.

The manual trans is decent. The biggest thing is gonna be front end/steering components...other wise they are decent trucks.....mine is the same year but a 2500 and i like it.

As taco said, chassis/steering parts but very easy fix. Other problem would be intake gasket, save your self time and money and buy the hughes kit. http://www.hughesengines.com/Index/p...p?partid=27091 and this will fix the track bar issue http://thurenfabrication.com/stocktb.html
