    You hit it right on the head, I never parked inside. It sat outside for 12 years. It has 141,000 miles on it and still runs great. I guess when and if the economy settles down, I'll get another.

    Thanks Gameslayer, I was kinda thinking it was a bad paint job at the factory. I'm thinking I might retire her. There's some pretty good deals right now on 1-3 year old trucks, I might start shopping,

    Thanks Again!

My 96 Ram has been inside all of its life but is doing the same thing. I talked to a Dodge Technician and he said that the 96-98 body style didn't come with the best of paint jobs. Most of them only have two layers of clear coat when they should have four to six layers. The only solution to it is to put a better paint job on it. i hope this helps.

This is not an uncommon problem with vehicles that are left outside most of the time. There are three Dodge trucks in my neighborhood with this same problem, Solution - a new paint job.

Peeling paint on cinderblock walls in basement

Just a guess, but it is likely that moisture is causing the paint to peel. I suggest you remove as much peeling as you can with a wire brush and then use a waterproof sealant. I had very good luck with a product they sell to seal cement walls in basements with moisture problems.

1998 F 150 regular cab paint peeling problems

Ford will not assist on a 1998 vehicle because of the age.
You can primer and spot paint but it would probably do better if you sanded it down first.
