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.
-Painted White Bug Deflector in front
-Tow Mirrors which fold and extend out.
-Tinted Overhead lights
-Tinted third brake and rear tail lights
-New front bumper (replaced due to age)
-New front valance (replaced due to age)
-New lower spoiler (replaced due to age)
-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.

Dodge is hoping that a heavy dash of humor helps it move some more units of the Dart with a hilarious ad campaign called Don't Touch My Dart. The spots star actors Craig Robinson, best known for his role as Darryl on The Office, and Jake Johnson from New Girl as neighbors and friends playing a game of one-upmanship over Robinson's new car. Johnson is envious of the ride and just wants to touch it.
Mon, 11 Nov 2013 15:33:00 EST
The ads are pretty funny if you're a fan of somewhat absurdist humor, and Robinson has just the right amount of over-the-top seriousness to really make the commercials work. They have kind of a Roadrunner and Wile E. Coyote vibe with Johnson constantly in inept pursuit of what he wants, but he clearly isn't getting it.
The first four spots in the campaign are already online, but according to Dodge this is just the beginning. The company says that it's planning about 24 different versions of these ads in various lengths to play on TV and online. You can check out the ads titled First Scratch, Birdhouse Police Garage Door and Voice Touching below, along with the brand's release about the new ads. There's also a pretty good gag on its YouTube page with Robinson protecting his Dart.
Judging by his collection of cars, blues musician Kenny Wayne Shepherd (shown above, at left, with fellow musician George Thorogood) is an enthusiast of classic Dodge muscle cars, so it's no surprise that he is an active member of Mopar-related online communities. When his 1972 Dodge Charger turned up missing from an LA-area warehouse last Wednesday, Shepherd took to the forums of Moparts.org in an attempt to get the word out in hopes of recovering his custom classic.
Thu, 17 Apr 2014 13:00:00 EST
The Charger was stolen along with four other vehicles, and Hot Rod reports that two women have been taken into custody since - but still no word on the car. With its blacked-out appearance (including custom Foose wheels), this car is definitely hard to miss, but Shepherd also said that the car might be even more distinguishable now due to some body damage that may have occurred as it was being driven from the warehouse lot. Shepherd's website has a full gallery of images for this '72 Charger, which also has a modern 392-cubic-inch V8 under the hood and a six-speed gearbox pulled from a Viper.
If you're in the LA area and happen to see this car, Shepherd asks that you call the LAPD West Valley Division at 818-374-7611. Here's to hoping this one-of-a-kind Charger turns up unscathed.
With a new look inspired largely by the Dart compact, the 2015 Dodge Charger made its New York Auto Show debut today. Along with the interior and exterior changes, an eight-speed automatic becomes standard across the range.
What hasn't changed is the choice of engines under the Charger's long hood. A 3.7-liter V6 serves as the base mill, and can be had in both rear- and all-wheel-drive varieties, while the 5.7-liter V8 is an optional item and can be had in rear-drive only. Outputs are also carried over from last year, with 292 horsepower and 260 pound-feet of torque for the six-pot, while the Hemi V8 delivers 370 hp and 395 lb-ft of torque.
The new exterior treatment is a fairly large departure from the styling tone set by the Charger since its reintroduction to the US market in 2006. The blacked-out, crosshair grille and new headlamps are the biggest changes for 2015, though there are other, less immediately noticeable updates, such as the more rounded "Racetrack" taillamps that, like the front fascia, draw some inspiration from the Dart.
