This Ram ran and drove well with some other issues of note. On the exterior I noted the front bumper at right side is not aligned with the right fender. There are minor misc scratches around the vehicle. Normal for mileage and most too small to see in photos. I noted a door ding at the right rear door. Left bedside tool lid has crack at the cylinder lock (see image). I noted a small chip, less than 1/16" in the windshield.

Inside I noted there is light wear to the seats. Normal for mileage. The door panels and interior trim showed the age and mileage of the vehicle. I noted no smoke or odd odors inside the vehicle. The climate controls and stereo worked well. The windows, locks, and mirrors worked well.

Under the hood I noted full fluids. There were no visual engine bay leaks.

I found no issues on the test drive. The engine had plenty of power and there were no misfires or smoking. The transmission shifted as designed with no harsh engagement or slipping. The steering was responsive and the suspension was firm and the vehicle handled well. There were no abnormal vibrations or odd noises. The brakes were firm with no pulsation felt. There were no leaks found to the underside of the vehicle. I hooked up my Scan Tool to the computer system and found no current or pending codes. All of the live data looked good with no issues reported.

See below and pictures for more info.
