3B7HC13YXVG770629 -- 1997 BR1500 Extended Cab, 4x2, with the 16'' alloy wheels, Laramie SLT, 5.2 liter automatic.
Thanks. I want to keep this as stock as possible. I love me some "Mist Gray" interior -- my dash is not even badly cracked.
Need advice on reattaching the passenger-side overhead grab-handle, as it has now stripped out of the ceiling the 2nd
time and "bigger screws" isn't holding it. I don't have a Factory Service Manual for this truck...and I need a part number for
the plastic bezel that goes around the driver's side seat controls, as it is now broken. Seat works fine. Plastic bezel in pieces.
We're at 173 1/2 K on the 1997 Ram 1500 now; 4x2, 318, automatic with overdrive and *all* the toys for the year except
leather seats, which suits me fine as I find cloth seats more comfortable. Survivor? Thriver! Box stock engine; put in a
water pump in May 2010, and rebuilt the transmission the week after Halloween 2010. Been driving, and adoring, this
vehicle since October 2003, when I bought it with about 88K on the odometer. It's been all over Texas, to Kentucky, out
through New Mexico, repeatedly down into deep East Texas ... served me, my SO and both my sons very very well.
This might be the prettiest truck face Dodge ever built, too.
