Gene, I had a 1991 Dodge B250 van (3/4 ton), with the 5.9 liter engine,
automatic trans, and a 3.9 (or was that 3.7 diff ratio?). I sold it after
12 years, it had 250,000 miles. I never did any work to the engine,
transmission or differential. I did have to change some 'auxiliary' items;
like fuel pump, alternator, starter, etc. It was a GREAT vehicle. I still
see it driving around town.
I towed both a 5500 lb travel trailer, and my race car on a flat bed. It
will tow fine. I will say, my wife's new 2003 Durango R/T has a lot more
torque and HP than the 1991 van, although they had the "same" engine.
Obviously engine technology has changed in 12 years.
350 means it is a half ton. It will probably have a 5.9L engine. Your gas
mileage will suck.
