Be patient you will find one. I found a 2006 Ram Mega Cab 4x4 SLT Cummins 90k at a dealer for $22,000. I had to fly to New Orleans from Ohio and drive it back but ti was worth it and I had fun in the process, Bourbon St. was interesting.

I did make sure that the engine is an LLY generation, which weren't known for injector problems like the previous LB7 generation. So the injectors shouldn't be a problem. And front end parts (I'm told) are all in great shape.

Yea, I've been looking all over the country trying to find one. It is very hard to find one that meets all my criteria. If I weren't so picky I'd have a truck by now. But, I want to make sure that I am going to be happy with the new truck.

Be Patient.... It took me almost 6 mos before I found my 03 Chevy 2500HD Duramax. Had 85,000, LT package and I got it in 2007 for 22,500. The one you are looking at is good and I would jump on it if it was selling for $10-$12,000.

Good Luck.

I may end up making an offer on the truck for somewhere around $13500-$14000. But I don't want to go for it quite yet, I want to make sure that I don't find anything better soon.

I did look this truck up and while it is a very nice truck, it is not the crew cab that I am wanting. But it does give me an idea of where prices are.

Man, I just can't comprehend buying any truck with the miles you guys are looking at, unless it's dirt cheap. If you have that kind of money, why not put it on a new truck with a full warranty and 0 miles?People sell trucks with those kinds of miles for a reason-they're worn out and they're buying a new truck. That's my experience after driving American made vehicles for 25 yrs.

I just bought my 02 dodge 2500 extra cab short box 4x4 with all the goodies(leather heated power seats cd towing mirrors badicly everything) with a fisher v plow with only 70k miles for a little over 16k. Those trucks with high miles don't excite me and they are way over priced
