    If I have to take the transmission out, I'd like $1500 for it. It has about 100 to 150 miles on it. If you take it out, you can have it for $500. Or for $750 you can take the whole truck.

    I bought the truck about 4 or 5 years ago. Had 68k miles i think at the time. I used it for a couple seasons for plowing of a few lots. During the summer we just used it for runs to the local landfill. It has about 78k or so miles on it now.

    Babied it for a while knowing the transmission was on its way out. Finaly went out in December of last year. I took it in, in February I think, had the transmission rebuilt. Then the truck started running like c r a p . Didnt have any power, kept backfiring. Took it in, DODGE said "Tune UP" $800 bucks later, truck ran a little better, but still bucked every now and then. Dodge said it could be a clogged injector, could be a bad fuel pump, could be a lot of things. Suggested running high test for a while. So we did. Problem only got worse. Took it back in, they said everything is pointed towards the ignition coil(s). Replaced them, but the problem is still there. They then said it looks like a ctylitic converter problem. May be a flipped baffle. During their testing, they broke off the oxygen sensor. Told me, they couldnt proceed any further without knowing if I was going have the work done or not, since there was so much rust, they were afraid to test or break off anything else. At $900 each for the catylitic converters I told them NO. I've put enought money into the truck as it is. gotta cut your losses somewhere.

    It still runs, but runs like cr a p.

    To be honest with you. If you have the time, the know how, and a place to work on it, it's probably something a mechanicaly inclined person could fix at a reasonable cost. I dont have place or the time, and I cant see giving my money to a dealer who only wants to replace one thing at a time instead of trying to narrow the problem down.

    The truck is 12 years old. It cleans up prety nicely, but it does have a lot of rust underneath and in the bed. The interior is aging, the roof liner is sagging, and the drivers seat is worn out. Prety much all the little power options still work or have been replaced. I'm going to try and part out what I can, then the rest goes to the recycle yard.

    screw paying $900 for the cat get an after market or hollow it out

    but it does sound like an injector but is your check engine light on?

    the dealer ship you took it too sounds like they are RIPPING you off big time

    my bet would the incectors or TB clean it with plowing i know i have got salt in mine and it did some really funny things with my old ford i took the carb off to find a whole lot of black oil crap with salt and rust mine i couldnt fix cause after cleaning it i broke one of the screws to idle it so it was running really high and leaking gas on the motor so got a new one and it was fixed

    but i also did a tune up (no wires, plugs, all new fluids,) and it was good again so i sold it and got my 1995 dodge that i 3 years later blew the tranny then got a 02 that im not gonna plow with any more

    but i have 4 injectors you can have for $75 shipped they worked good when they were on my other truck they came from the 5.9L these are like $100 each new so real good deal there
