Default 1997 Dodge Ram 1500 5.2 4x4 94k 32s 5500 obo

I have a 1997 Dodge Ram 4x4. The vehicle is in great shape for the year and has low miles at just under 94k right now. It is my daily driver and miles will go up. I hate to see this go because I love this truck and I know I'll own another one day, but I have fallen on hard times as so many have. I bought the truck at a buy-here/pay-here lot which means you put $$ down and make payment to them so if you do buy it then we'd have to go down the street on Mon-Fri to get the title. If you take a look on good ole' craiglist you'll find no other Dodge Rams with low miles at this price. Most others have 140k and I've seen a few with 200+ at this price point. Don't miss out on a great truck. There is no lift kit but it currently rides on 33x12.50r15s. The front two tires are Trailercutter MTs, the back right is an MTZ and the back left is an all terrain. All tires have good tread, in fact all but the back left are brand new. I will also includ 2 spare 32" tires, the truck does come with the stock spare which has full tread as well. It is an extended cab Green/Silver outside with Black/Beige interior. Installed is a Pioneer CD player that plays mp3s and has a usb port for your mp3 player. The interior is in good shape with a few burn holes on the passengers floor. There is minor rust on the rockers but the wheel wells are starting to bubble. The engine is a 318/5.2 with an automatic oil change done with AMS Oil 7000 mile Synthetic as well as new plugs. Truck runs great and shifts as it should. 4x4 hi and 4x4 lo work good. The truck has no front bumper and needs a few small things. Needs: Bumper, shocks, new front crossmember, and a tune up. This truck is as reliable as they come and I've gone an entire week putting 200 miles a day on the truck. Don't miss out on a great truck. The 318 gets a little better mileage as well especially long distance freeway, I've seen as high as 19mpg long trips....STOCK TIRES on that though. More like 12/16 mpg right now.

Now the crossmemeber and bumper, we're all friends here so honesty is good. I've took the truck off road maybe 3 times and the 3rd time it got stuck we had to pull from the front. Well you guess, front crossmember and bumper got torn. Truck still drives and shifts as it should

If you are interested in seeing or test driving then please contact me. Price is 5500 obo. I'm a fair guy and open to REASONABLE offers. NO TRADES.

They are worth what someone will pay for them. I know what I need to get. But 139k, mines at 94k. I would gladly pay 500 more for 45,000 less miles. That's a significant amount of wear and tear. But the 5.9 vs 5.2, 100% truth I do not notice a difference unless I'm on the freeway trying to pass and it's not a HUGE difference either. I sold a beat up 91 Chevy K1500 for 2000 right before winter hit and I honestly didn't want to pay the 800 I paid for it. I think my price is fair and as stated it's OR BEST OFFER.

BEST OFFER?
