I have had this pickup for 6 years and put less than 30,000 miles on it.  I have done A TON of work to this thing over the last 6 years.  I had every intention of keeping it, but the cruise quit, and it sounds like it won't be a cheap fix (according to the Dodge dealership), so I decided to get another pickup.  Supposedly, there is a company in Florida that will rebuild the PCM for under $250.  This should fix the cruise, but the wife says this pickup has to go.  This pickup has about 226,000 miles on it, but will go up some as we do drive it.  The dash is surprise.  The 5.9L engine runs like a champ...smooth as silk.  She ain't "best of show" winner, but mechanically, I doubt you'll find one better for the year and miles.

AC blows cold.  Front end is tight and solid. 

Leather interior and loaded with options.  17 inch RAM rims.  This pickup is supposed to have 16 inch rims, but a previous owner put 17's on from a newer RAM.    Any questions, ask, and I'll try to get back with you ASAP.  First one with the money wins.
