    '94, 212k, 5 spd, regular cab, 4x4. They're askin $6975 for it. Thats about all the loan my credit will allow right now. I'm gonna go look at it today...if the truck isn't falling apart around the motor, and it's still available, I'll probably buy it. Only thing I wonder about is buying a truck with that many miles. It being a CTD makes the mileage alittle easier to handle...What do ya'all think?:confused:

    I think that truck is about 15 minutes from my house and you might have to beat me to it... :D

    Because it's lifted, just make sure there are no signs of serious abuse. Other than that, I'd go for it, it looks like a very nice truck, and being a Cummins, will probably give long service for years to come.

    There are *some* issues with the NV 4500, but nowhere near the issues the automatic has, and it won't cost that much to repair it.

    If I'd found a 12v that nice, I probably would have bought it in a heartbeat.

    Are those 33's? 35's? If the speedo isnt accurate, then the mileage will actually be higher.

    As for the 4500 and the 5th gear problem (im assuming thats what your referring to), Id say after that many miles hes either fixed it already, or its not going to break, lol.

    That seems liek a good deal, assuming the engine will last another 50-100k.

    some of those dodges could clear 35" with no problems . it might not have a lift if the truck is the higher lift from factory.

    According to Kelley Blue book retail for that truck with the info givin would be $10,600 which is high in My book but $6975 sounds like a good price as compared to to the retail price.

    Run...Run....Run...Run

    lots of mileage...and regular cabs come cheap at the auction...fleet trucks, town trucks....It seems like a lot of money for an old dodge.
