dont sound great to me
try kbb.com and enter all that info do the dealer price and private party price. That site is a good ESTIMATE of value. I would def. check out new trucks. One like that would be around $32k brand new im guessing same as similar ford just pay invoice and with 0% u could have a brand new truck for 6k more.

WAY to much money! Thats about as much as the Dodges cost brand new! Go buy yourself a brand new one for that kind of money.

According to Edmunds.com about $19,000 for a private party transaction.

You may be able to chew them down a little.

Around here, that actually wouldn't be bad, because you just can't find a good used Cummins powered Dodge. At 50,000, that thing isn't even broken in yet! The new ones don't have nearly as pretty body style IMHO.

You'll love the Cummins if you get it............plenty of power and torque, and mileage around 20 too.

I have a '00 with sport package, and slight modifications..
I gave 36,000 for it in '99, and I wouldn't take anything for it.

Absolute BEST vehicle I've ever owned.

If that truck is at a dealer thats about what there going for where I'm at. If its a private owner, he's probably trying to at least get what he owes on it. And yes 50,000 miles is nothing.

I looked at an '03 couple days ago, and its more that 35k and it wasn't an H.O. Mine is an '02, listed almost 36k and got it for about 31k. If you have a chrysler plant in your area and know someone who works there see if they will give you their friends deal. You can get a new truck for 1% under (true) dealer invoice. Save ya alot of dickerin with the saleman.

As far as the 99 goes its up to you, great truck and its about ballpark for around here. Or you can go to www.tdr1.com, its all about cummins/Dodge and there nothing on that site those guys dont know about. kinda like this one for lawns etc.

good luck,

Steve

I would try for $22,000 around here the Dodges don't hold the resale that some of the others do. $26K is a bit steep, when for $9000 more you could have a truck with no miles and the full warranty.

should of been posted under chevy trucks ugly

I dont haul cars however my brother-in-law; who by the way drives a powerstroke, and hauls sows for a large corporate hog producer in north Missouri told me the other day that the other guy who hauls and drives a Ram out pulled him on every hill on I-35 going to Kansas City. I asked him who had the bigger load, he said they were within a couple 100 lbs of each other which he said doesn't make any difference.

He's one of the biggest Ford nuts I know and for him to say that kinda blew my mind considerin we're always funnin each other about who can do what. So see everyone can come up with a story of who out pulled who... even the chevy guys.

Rather Ram it than Stroke it.
