    Selling my back-up truck as I need cash now. Not to list a sob story but a medical emergency with my grand daughter is forcing me to sell what I can to raise money for her cancer treatments.

    1998 Dodge RAM 2500 HD $4500.oo firm
    Truck-side BOSS plow mount and wiring - NO PLOW (can talk maybe)
    With the BOSS system and mount you can mount any plow they have as long as you have the controller and it will work.
    Timbrens on all 4 corners.
    Brand NEW Snow tires and also includes 4 summer tires. These tires are the Cooper M&S with the Extreme snow logo and cost $800 installed. They are the best snow tire available.
    Newer alternator and coil.
    New ball joints and u--joints up front.
    Alum. Toolbox is in like new condition and lock works.
    8 ft bed with Line-X liner and is guaranteed for life at any Line-X dealer.
    V8 360 gas engine. (just installed new plugs)
    35 gal gas tank
    A/c works and will freeze you out in summer. Heat works just as well.
    Western 1000 tailgate salter with swing mount. Salter only used 1 year and works flawlessly. Will hold 14 bags(700 lbs) and spread it with no problem.
    Controller for salter is analog style not digital and works like new.
    HD Trans cooler
    Trans has been rebuilt by a pro trans builder and has HD modifications installed.
    HD radiator
    New Pwr Str pump installed 2 years ago.
    Has 4 way strobes in all 4 corners but they stopped working last spring. My guy tells me it is probably just a ground as everything else checks out as far as power to unit and lights working when direct power is applied separately.
    Needs a battery. This one will not hold a charge over night. It will take a charge and start and recharge and restart but if left more than 12 hours it will not start unless jumped.

    Best of luck big guy, tough road to go down been through it with my mom. God bless. I would like to add that seeing how he sets up and takes care of trucks if I were in the market this is definitely someone you'd want to purchase a vehicle from!

    Thanks I appreciate it. A 2 yr old grand daughter is painfully hard.

    You are right about how I treat my trucks. Garage kept, oil changed on a regular basis's and all repairs done right , not jury rigged.

    132,289 which is low for a 98.

    The body is as you see. It is a 98 and there is some but not a bunch. It is a decent truck and has served me well. Wouldn't sell except the circumstances I face.

    Great deal for someone who is looking for a decent truck with tailgate salter.
    Plow can be included for extra $$.

    Salter install price is over $2,000
    Tool box new is over $200
    BOSS mount and wiring already installed is over $500
    Timbrens installed are over $200

    This is a heck of a deal for someone and it is just waiting to be sold!

    Sorry to hear about your grandaughter, I'd suggest reaching out to St. Jude's as they may be able to assist with the medical bills and treatments.

    I wish you all the best, I couldn't imagine having a child go through that.

    I'm interested in the truck. Can you pm me. Never owned a Dodge even though they are very popular in this area. Looks like a nice truck that I could use year round. Thanks

    Come on guys, don't wait for snow to be on the ground to pick this up.

    Great all around all year truck or eggsellent back-up truck for when yours breaks down on a cold night of plowing.

    This is one heck of a deal waiting for a buyer.
