    As some of you know my '03 chevy 2500hd was t-boned so rather then fix it I decided to go out and buy some "new" trucks....here is the first, will be getting a second within a few weeks.

    *** If anyone wants to sell a 03-06 Dodge 2500 crew cab hemi with lower miles let me know ***

    2001 Dodge 2500 SLT
    4x4 - auto - 5.9L gas - 83,500 miles
    extended cab - 8' bed
    power driver seat, clean body, cap
    newer cooper s/t tires

    I'm its third owner, needs front stabilizer shock, ac compressor, tune-up, good bath.

    I've already ordered heated/powered towing mirrors, a 26" mini led light bar, have a weather guard back-rack for it, thats going on tomorrow. Just picked up a 8' western pro plus too for it.

    I have a similar one but sport and yours is in ALOT nicer condition :drinkup:.

    watch the front fenders start to rust and bubble down the road
    Coat the inside with fluid film.

    I also put the solid steel dss steering stabalizer bar on my 99 and it really helped with the front end and it prevents future wear.

    ya this truck is in pretty good condition, just starting to bubble along bottom of door panels and other then that its pretty clean. I will post some "before and afters" take with my camera instead of crappy cell phone pictures. time to turn this hardly used truck into a $ making machine :yow!:

    I can't say I agree with you on moving up, I loved my chevy but for sake of argument fine :p .....sent you a pm
