I have for sale an original and 1 owner 2003 Dodge Ram 3500 Cummins 5.9 Turbo Diesel Dually with 147k miles. This truck is a true work horse that will pull and push anything in its way.
Before I go any further I want to be extremely clear and honest. This truck is a 2003 and is in very good condition, however there are a few small imperfections on the truck. This is not a show room truck but the truck is in clean and very presentable.
The car currently has 147k miles and always maintained since new. This is a one owner truck and I still have all the documents for this vehicle when bought new. If you are not familiar with the Laramine edition, it is fully loaded with a Alpine sound system, leather seats, steering wheel controls, heated seats, CD player, wood grain dash, etc.
Anything on the truck that needs or needed to be address was always repaired immediately and by a diesel mechanic shop. I have a lot of receipts for the work performed. Off the top of my head I will break down the truck.
**Exterior** (I would rate it an 8 out of 10)
-Dodge White, body is in good condition with a few small dings, nothing major and no rust. There is a quarter size dent on the hood and a small depression on the roof of the truck.

-Full Size Tool Box (not included in sale)

-Rear bumper was spray painted chrome and has dents on it. I would replace it $185.00 for a new bumper.
**Interior** (Rate it an 8 out of 10)
-All original and clean
-Driver seat is worn and has a small rip (see picture)
-Rear seats are in excellent condition however, they have a few small grease stains on them
-Have floor mats which protected the original carpet
-Original carpet and floor mats in good condition
-Only issue with the interior, when I click the unlock on the remote key or from the interior, the doors don't unlock. The module inside the truck needs to be replaced.
**Engine and Drivetrain**
-Truck starts up with zero hesitation, does not smoke, tick, knock, VERY VERY SOLID DIESEL MOTOR!!! Not even broken in.
-Oil replaced religiously 7k miles with diesel 15w-40 oil
-Transmission flushed everything 25k miles. Current had a flush 2k miles ago and oil is bright red. Very Clean and no issues with the transmission. Transmission shifts extremely smooth, OD works perfectly.

Truck comes with a Western Plow set up bought new in 2010. I believe the plow is just around 7.6" wide. Cutting edge is in good shape and has the flap on top to keep snow down. Oil was replaced before the start of the season.
I hope I am not being repetitive on this listing but I would rather be honest with the truck then not disclose an issue. The two issues with the truck as listed in the action are 1-The interior lock module needs to be replaced, the windows all work but the unlock and lock button does not unlock and of the locks. You have to do it manually.
2-The AC needs to be charged.
The Exterior of the truck has a small dent on the rear half of the passenger side rear door. The bed is in good condition but shows some signs of wear and tear. This truck was only used for personal use, no heavy equipment used in the truck.
The only towing I do with this truck is my 21 foot boat, no gooseneck trailer, never had any extension for that either. The bottom of the bed is in very good condition with no rust. The frame rails are extremely solid, some areas have a slight surface rust but nothing any where close to rusting through. I really enjoy this truck a lot, but personally I don't have the use for it any more. I don't have use for a 1-ton truck. If you are on the market for a new truck and cant afford 60k for a new truck diesel dually this is for you!! I am asking 18500.00 OBO. I am located in Tenafly NJ 07670. I will not ship this truck, but I will assist the new buyer if the truck needs to be shipped. The truck is being sold as is with no warranties expressed or implied.

If you're an enthusiast, and you don't know that Dodge spawned another Hellcat this week, you really must have been living in cave. The 2015 Dodge Charger SRT Hellcat is probably the biggest news for enthusiasts since the reveal of, well the 2015 Dodge Challenger SRT Hellcat.
Sat, 26 Jul 2014 12:00:00 EST
But, there are some things you might not know or might have missed about the new Charger and Challenger Hellcats. For starters, reports that the Hellcat production would be limited to a low volume are not true.
"We have not capped the Hellcat on either the Challenger or the Charger," Dodge CEO Tim Kuniskis said.

Both of America's domestic luxury brands seem to be stuck in neutral.
It's ironic that Cadillac and Lincoln got new bosses within days of each other this month. It's also a commentary on the fact both of America's domestic luxury brands seem to be stuck in neutral.
With more than 200,000 units across six separate recalls and almost all of its brands, it appears that Chrysler has officially jumped headfirst into the recall pool this month. The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration has issued three official recalls for the automaker, and The Detroit News is reporting that the automaker itself has announced three more.
The biggest of the recalls applies to about 120,000 Dodge Charger, Dodge Challenger and Chrysler 300 models for 2011 and 2012 due to faulty wiring harnesses for the seat-mounted side airbags, which could lead to these airbags not deploying in the event of a crash. A little more than 60,000 two-wheel-drive versions of the 2007-2008 Dodge Nitro and 2008 Jeep Liberty SUVs are being recalled due to a heat shield that could cause the driveshaft to break, which if that isn't bad on its own, could then hit underneath where the airbag sensor is mounted, causing the airbags to deploy. Wrapping up NHTSA's recall notices, about 20,000 Jeep Patriot and Jeep Compass models for 2012 are also being recalled due to a problem with the fuel tank transfer tube that could lead to the vehicle stalling. The LX car recall campaign is going into effect this month, while the other two will start next month - all three notices are posted below.
In addition to the official NHTSA recalls, The Detroit News is also reporting that Chrysler is recalling more than 16,000 Ram trucks and a small number of Dodge Dart sedans. Around 6,500 2013 Ram 1500 trucks will be recalled due to an improper adjustment of the parking brake cable from the factory, while 7,000 Cummins-powered 2013 Ram Heavy Duty trucks are being recalled due to an engine cover that does not have as much heat resistance as it is supposed to. Finally, a total of 46 Dodge Dart sedans are being recalled due to a problem with the brake calipers and/or parking brake.
