    been looking for a early 3rd gen ram for almost a yea, when i came across this one at a local dealer..wasnt want i thaugh i wanted til i drove it
    its a 2001, non 53 block cummins, already had a FASS lift pump and MBRP 4in exhaust when i got it,
    i mounted up my dads uni mount cuz he blew his trans during the Dec. blizzard and stll hast got it fixed, so he now uses my truck to plow

    Awesome truck, I had an 02 and it was a blast to drive, I wish I still had it. You can make a lot of power with a Cummins. Is it an auto or a 6 speed?

    Can't beat the Smarty bro, I have been running mine for 4 years. Just make sure when you start adding power, you install gauges and be careful with that tranny.

    Nice ride, I wouldnt let anyone else drive my truck let alone plow with it especially if they have 1 blown tranny under their belt.
