    A local contractor here is selling his truck. Its a Dodge 3500 5.9 GASSER, auto, plain work truck, 88K miles. KBB says around $8,500. Guy is asking alot more then that ($13K) but I know he'll never get that. Clean truck, I won't use it enough to justify buying a diesel, and would mainly pull an enclosed trailer at 6K LBS, and sometimes a equipment trailer with around 10K LBS but not very often.

    9500 max. Just because it has a dump. I bought my 1999 quad cab with every option and a 488 v10 for 8300 with 81k

    Not 13k but I think 8 to 9k would be a steal. Probably worth 10 or 11

    I agree...and that's pushing it for me. The problem with a Dodge is the transmissions. I had a Dodge mechanic tell me once " How many Dodge trucks do you see that are tow trucks?" NONE. Reason is is that the tranny is the weak link. Ford, Chevy, or GMC...That's it for me...Although to be honest, all my trucks are Fords, and my cars are Caddy's........
