    i might be able to pick up a 1999 dodge 2500 with the cummins. for real real cheap. its in indiana, around 100k tranny/axles/ and some other stuff has been replaced.

    its some old ladys truck now that her husband died.

    good deal? i might be able to get it for 2k

    fuck for 2K I think you should get it.... as long as its in decent shape.. no telling what her hubby used it for. I have an 05 and I love it... I had to warranty a few small items but otherwise shes been strong.

    Maybe also register at cumminsforums.com to see what common problems to look for on 99s.

    from what i was told it was only used to haul a 5th wheel camper, and ever since her husband died she hasnt used it. but to drive everynow and then.


    my dream is to own a cummins and it might come true :dunno:

    I love my cummins... im doing the fuel system now to someday support compound turbos. I just want to drop it off to a shop and say give it back fully built and a dyno chart with 800 whp :big grin: But I have other projects and stuff going on that right now its going to be a slow process. I have a few small mods like regeared, edge, intake, straight pipe and its just fucking fun to drive and play in the mud.

    Yup.... I really like my 6 inch lift and 37s, but I kind of wanna go bigger like a 10 or 12 and 40s, but Im worried that I'd be way past bumper height laws and get fucked with all the time. Right now im only 3 inches over and they dont seem to care, I got pulled over for speeding and the cop asked me and I said nope its legal, he went back there and looked and said looks good enough. So I dont know if I want to push my luck, I do see a few trucks that have bigger lifts than me and I wonder if they get fucked with.

    are you kidding? the engine block alone is worth more than that.

    2k is unheard of. she probably doesnt know what she has then. BUY IT NOW

    For 2K, snatch it up or someone else will. I'd pay 3 times that much for just a decent one.
