    I am looking at a 2002 Dodge 2500 QuadCab shortbox, Cummins Diesel with 106,000 miles on it. I just am a little worried about that 106,000 miles on the truck.....What does everyone else think? The truck looks brand new...perfect inside and out. Should I be worried about the truck or not? Any help is appreciated. By the way, the VIN # is ---- 3B7KF23652M294594 ---- if anyone has the capability of running the vehicle history. THANKS!:) :)

    Man that diesel is just barley broke in. I wouldn't be woried at all. That is why usually even with 100-150k on those cummins, they still want a pretty penny for them. Definatley check the records, mainly for the tranny, and just make sure oil was changed reg and things like that. If the thing looks brand new and has been taken care of, there should be nothing to worry about. IMO.

    Ok, the 47re behind that cummins isnt going to last but ~150k so expect to have that go sometime soon. Otherwise what is asking for it? Those are nice trucks.

    I can get it for $18,000.00 which I think is a steal for a Cummins powered Dodge in that shape.
