Hey guys! I hope I'm in the correct spot! Im looking to buy a new truck, and I dont know what I want/need. As of right now I'm still in highschool, but i have a job, and i will be buying this truck myself, with a down payment from a dealer. I want a Cummins 2500. No matter what i get, I want a 4x4 ext cab 5-6 speed. I want to stick with Dodge due to my ole rust bucket that runs amazing. I have been looking into the 1st gens, if i like them alot as long as they arent beat up bad! I love the 2nd gens! I have one right now but its exactly opposite of what i want! Its 96 2wd single cab auto 1500. I really really like the 98 2500 with the 12v. I would take a 98-02 2500 but rather the 98 12v. I also checked into the 3rd gen(03-05). I like them but i am not very fond of newer vehicles, i guess you can same im old school. After I get the truck, i plan on doing a little mods, about 5" lift and 35-37's; 4-5" exhaust to a 6" tip, maybe a programmer, and a chip. Im not an expert on these truck yet, so i need to know what im looking for. I know the common flaws of the 94-01/02 dodges, but thats about it. I am going to school for welding so i want the diesel for hauling, and because i just want a diesel. I want one that gets pretty decent mpg, but has the power i would need. ANY advice is appriciated! thank you! - lane
