Default 1993 Dodge Ram w150

I'm going to look at a 1993 Dodge Ram w150 with the 360 magnum tomorrow.. Never owned a dodge yet.. Is there anything specific I should check out that typically goes wrong with these trucks?? Thanks for the feedback!

if you got a pressure tester or access to one take it with you and pressure test the cooling system. the heads like to crack. also check the steering. dodge steering boxes are notorious for being real loose.
