2001 4x4 Off Road
As some of you may know I am a current owner of a 1996 Dodge Ram 1500 SLT Laramie Crew Cab Sport with the 5.9 Magnum, 4sp auto, and 4x4. I was cruising through the local auto lots when I rolled upon what could possibly be my next gem. I'm in the process of selling a car (which is what would fund a new to me truck purchase) so I could have the money soon. Anyways, I dont really know much about the truck at this point as the dealer was closed, before I could get too many details and it is not yet listed online. What I do know is that it is a 2001 Dodge Ram 1500 4x4 Sport Off Road Standard Cab Short Box. It has a matching fiberglass topper and seems to be in good shape body wise (especially for Minnesota) but does have a bit of fading on the hood and roof and a small dent in the box near the rear bumper. Little to no rust, not even on the drivers door. From what I understand the Off Road trucks come with a 2" lift, different wheels, front tow hooks, limited slip rear end, larger transmission cooler, and 4.10 gears. Am I missing anything? Also since I would end up Daily Driving this beast if I bought it what kind of MPG should I be expecting? Engine size is unknown at this point. Truck has been un-modified. I figure it should get better than my existing truck because it is newer and lighter right? Wrong? Please fill me in on info guys. Lastly is the asking price of $4,995 seem fair?
