My new truck

Just sold my 2007 Dodge Cummins 3500 to get out of a $450 payment and had to pull $2k out of my savings to line this bad boy up.

It's a 2000 xlt with order option for leather seats, power slider, power seat, and all the other power stuff that is standard on an xlt.

I asked him why he didn't buy a lariat and he said he wanted to be able to put it in 2wd low range with the stick on the floor, and you couldn't do this with the lariat truck.

He handed me a folder full of all the service records all done by the Ford dealer by his house.

Truck has 77k miles on it, not a scratch or a dent, no rock chips on the hood, it had big diamond plate running boards and mudflaps which protected the rocker panels from rock chips, and spotless on the inside.

Not quite the towing power of my cummins, but I'm very happy with it, and have the title in hand which to me worth alot more than having the latest/greatest truck on the road.

What do you think???

Re: My new truck

Thanks for all the compliments, the truck really is a gem. I was worried about finding a nice truck after I let the cummins go and this one appeared 2 days later. I asked several questions over the phone, bought a plane ticket that night and drove it 10 hrs home the next day.
Not only did I get high bluebook for my cummins, but I also seperately sold a set of wheels/tires. Sold the steering brace, and a second set of stock wheels giving me an extra $1000 total to put the wheels/fender flares on this truck. I bought the camper shell for $350 and had it painted for $300.

The power around town/hwy is fine for me, but when I hook up my snowmobile trailer (25' enclosed) and hit the hills, I see the difference between 235hp, and 315 hp. I'm going to need a light tow chip of some sort which will hopefully put me back in the game.
