I would say its solid. Getting up their in miles for that price but it is a one ton dually. I don't know what you plan to haul but I personally wouldn't buy a v8 gasser dually. Just my opinion.

that all depends...i would say first things first, do you want a crew cab? would you put a hoist under the flatbed? basically, is the base truck what you are looking for or is it something you would settle for? for the price, probably ok...155 is high for a gas engine and it's obviously had some work done to it already but if you are prepared for a few future fixes then it honestly sounds like an ok deal...the fact that the lazy a$$ couldn't clean the inside ORRRR the outside shows me they didn't take great care of it, or cared for it in general...my first truck was a dodge gasser and it was nothing but problems, even after i fixed everything and had it ready to go it still had a bunch of issues with the next owner...

long story short, i wouldn't personally buy it, but the price isn't terrible...has a little potential with the flatbed

on second thought, take that red stripe off of it, clean it up, and build some side boards for the bed and that would be a nifty little work truck that wouldn't look half bad...i would personally put a hoist under the bed, if the bed would allow for a hoist, but it depends on what you are going to use it for...i would also replace the bed lights with LED's, it just gives it a cleaner/newer look as well as doesn't use as much energy and it's brighter..it's 4x4 which is nice, i would never buy a truck that didn't have 4x4

I'd be using it for mowing and landscaping my ultimate question is was their anything wrong with this year truck or anything to watch out for?

i think the hemi has a pretty good track record, not so much for the transmission...dodges also are the first to rust

03 is the first year of the new trannies which is the big dodge flaw so as far as i know should be regular maintenance. I have a 03 dakota which surprisingly has a lot of the same parts as this truck just on a smaller scale obviously and i love it plan on another when it gives up on me. mpgs will be bad but its a truck so thats expected.
