Help on a 1998 Dodge Ram purchase

Im looking at a 1998 Dodge Ram, 125,000 miles, V8, auto, 4X4, they're asking $4000.00 for it. I need a winter truck to mount a plow on to do light plowing, this truck is in excellent condition top and bottom. People have been telling me not to purchase this truck because they have a lot of transmission problems, I read that on line too. Not sure if its just a few in a million that have problems or not. Has any one heard anything about about the dodge ram that may help my decision, Thanks

Can't speak for all of them but my husband has one (not a 4x4, but otherwise the same) with 130,000 miles and he just needed a new transmission last month. Other than that, he loves it, tho!

Adopt a shelter pet!
Spay or neuter your pet!
Please don't leave pets or kids in a hot car!
Bring your pets inside in this cold weather! Have some compassion and sense.
