no way pal. You could get a 2001 2500hd gasser with around 75k miles for that price.

I know I can get a gas truck for alot less but I am in need of a diesel truck. Is 112,000 miles alot for a diesel?

no its not alot of miles, but it is a 1997, and that IMO is alot of miles for the tranny and drive terrain. I have a rule of never buying a vechile that is over 10 years old.

I wouldnt buy it.

If you do, expect to replace a tranny and many other compoents such as hubs, brakes, ball joints, etc.

I have never had one, but those are not good motors. Do a search on this site and you will get a load of info about the foibles of that motor. I would keep looking. Don't discount the 12valve Cummins motor in a dodge for that kind of money.

The 6.5 litre diesel is junk.
