    Found a deal on this 96 Dodge 2500 4x4 360, auto, 113,000, with a Western plow for $2900.00 Couldn't beat that with a stick. I am sure someone will say something since it's newer than 1990...lol

    I think it looks good, real good. your truck is VERY different from what people here have. which I think helps your business because people remember your trucks since they're different from everyone elses.

    A guy I know who's daughter works for the same company has a 98 2500 4x4 with the 360 auto his truck has gone through 2-3 rear ends the front end needed a total rebuild and the transmission crapped out that cost 4500 dollars to repair. The truck also eats brakes for dinner. To top it off the 360 only nets you 8 mpg.

    He keeps saying to me steal the truck so he can collect the insurance he is getting tired of dumping money into the truck rebuilding the transmission was the last straw.

    I have a feeling that is why you got the Dodge so cheap you may have a money pit on your hands in a short time.

    Well around here it would be different since most LCOs have a white truck, and yours is red. it stands out and the yellow lettering just looks good on it too. not too wild, not too mild, its just right for my mind to remember.
