Which truck?!

Looking to pickup a new truck here in the next couple days and 2 have caught my eye. One is a 1995 dodge ram 2500 extended cab with 110,000 no plow never worked the other is right here ..http://www.evo-motor-sports.com/2001-Dodge-RamPickup2500/Used-Truck/Hamilton-NJ/531/2249084/Details.aspx#Notes... I like the fact that the second one has a dump bed don't really like the Meyers garbage on the front but w.e... I figured to put a mount on the other one is about 1200.00 and dump bed about 1500 so they will wind up costing about the same. I do like the manual trans on the 2001 tho. Let me know what you guys think! Need to choose ASAP

Unless you really want an old 12V Cummins I would go with the newer truck. It has quit a few less miles and from the sounds of it it is already setup the way you want it minus the plow brand I guess.

Yah the only thing that kinda scares me is all the spray paint underneath looks like someone was trying just cover **** up. Does 18,000 for that truck seem a little high to anyone else?

Yes 18,000 does seem quite high and I guess I didn't notice the paint. Is the 1995 pretty clean and whats the price on it?

and he said it was pretty much spotless.

I have owned both of those trucks... As to which one is better??? I would have to say the 1995 with 700 000km on the clock. Those p pumped 5.9's are indestructable !!!!

A bit high for a 95 as well, some people think if its diesel they can ask a million bucks !!!!!!

12 valve! I'd sell my 06 if I could find an ultra low mileage 12valve.

$12,000 and $18,000 are these guys insane? I'd much rather a CR (03+) for that kinda money.

Id go with the 12V BUT take care of the KILLER DOWEL PIN!

downside to the 12v are leaking front covers, valve cover gaskets, and the body it is wrapped with (a bit out of date for comforts

24V VP issue is the VP44, crankcase breather container clogging the radiator, cracked dash, etc...

neither of the two have a good front end...

Find a Super Duty with a blown motor and put a P-pumped 24V in it

I like the last part! Should be easy to find a blown up Powerstroke

Make sure you get the truck oil sprayed before the salt starts munchin. More than likely the drive line will out live 3 truck bodies. A great choice and congrats !!!

It actually has duel stacks, infront of the tool box, they come through a peice of diamond plate that sits between the tool box and the front of the bed. I will probly keep them for the winter, seeing as I don't want to sPend any more money before the winter if I dont have too. I will prob change it out come spring, so the bed is more useful for landscaping purposes. But I don't mind the stacks too much more pics to come, love how this truck drives it's just as tight as my 2005 DD 1500 with 60,000mi. More pics to come as soon as I get a chance to wire up the lights and plow ect.
