    ive never seen so many nice old dodge's until you.... never saw many to begin with, now i see great deals on them everywhere. you must have opened my eyes to the dodge side.

    did i mention my 08 superduty was in again, new radiator, new pulleys, fixed the rattles in my dash, have a new squeak..... my 00 superduty went it today for a bad wheel bearing, hasnt been taht bad but apparantly it ate up my axle shaft, im looking $1100 for that , $300 for sway bar kit...... $165 tranny service, and more its going to be $2000, thats cost on an old dodge

    hey metro how long do you hold on to these older trucks?....do you replace them after a set number of years or miles or do you just use them until a major componet goes on them like a tranmission?

    I generally run them until they start looking really rough. Rust is the biggest reason they go.

    Trucks look good. Seems like you find good deals on all of them.
