1999 Dodge 2500 Cummins SOLD!
previous owners ad - http://www.greatlakes4x4.com/showthr...t=1999+cummins
Quoted from previous owners ad - Truck now has 293,xxx miles.
"Selling for my dad, its a 99 cummins with around 280k on the ticker. Has brand new 285 hankook at's. All new brakes pads, rotors, shoes, drums and hardware. New ball joint, newer outer u joints, new lift pump (upgraded out of tank) new sending unit, new radiator, alternator, starter, and batteries. Truck has a 4" exhaust that is about a year old, and a k&n intake. Also has a 3" lift. The trans is freshly rebuilt with a triple disc converter, and all new internals (including valve body) and is under warranty. The truck has been used for work and is a bit rough. Some scratches and dents, and rust starting in the normal spots. Interior has some rips, and the driver seat is well worn. Truck is in EXCELLENT mechanical condition and needs nothing. Just cosmetics."
I've owned this truck for a little over a year and a half, and it's been a great two rig. Have invested much money and time into it since purchase. Only selling as I recently replaced it with a 6spd. I really hate to sell it as it's been super reliable.
Purchased the truck from the previous owner with a bad injection pump. Brought the truck right to S&T automotive in muskegon and had them replace it with a Bosch pump, airdog 150 fuel system, 3piece high flow manifold, "super40" hx40 turbo, and 100hp injectors.
The good -
-The mods mentioned above, and work from previous owner mentioned
-Tires have much life left. Load range E
-Overload springs in the rear, leveling kit up front
-Towing package with trailer brake controller
-Runs great, starts in the cold (has block heater as well)
-Fair MPG for a large truck. Around 16-18.
-Overhead display with MPG, temp, and compass.
-Doesn't use or leak enough fluids to be noticeable between oil changes
-Quadzilla Adrenaline with pulse v2 monitor
-All new Moog tie rod, drag link, and track bar shortly after I purchased it.
-Holes drilled for fifth wheel rails
-Has a sunroof!
-This thing still blue books in "fair" condition at over $8,000!
The flaws -
-Body is far from showroom. Has some rust in all the usual dodge spots. Less than most MI dodges
-Interior is fair. Seats have some wear, as does the carpet
-Steering still has a little slop as expected on this generation dodge
-Had the ac charged and it only lasted a season
-Few clunks, rattles, vibrations as you'd expect with a 290k+ truck
-It's an auto...
I'm probably forgetting a few things and will probably be editing the ad a few times from now. I would trust this truck to tow a trailer anywhere, and absolutely would not be selling it if I didn't get a good deal on my 6spd.
Asking $6,000 FIRM!
