    I am look at a 1997 Ram 2500 4900 miles with 8ft boss plow on front and a rear plow he is asking $6000.00 for it. Truck is in good shape.

    4900 miles? Is it a rebuilt motor?

    Sounds dirt cheap to me, if it's an auto get the trans built and enjoy a truck that will plow long after the body falls off it.
