WTB: diesel truck

Kinda got an eye to the market for an older diesel pickup. I'd prefer a second generation Dodge Ram - 1994-2001, but might consider a Ford.
Might. LOL.

Must have 4WD, and an auto. Cosmetics really arent' important...mileage isnt' important. No rust (or very little) and good mechanicals are what matter.

I'm not in any rush...i'm willing to be patient for 3-8 months until I find the right truck. So if any of you see anything that looks good, just let me know.

Thanks fellas!

Well...I have something...it will pull about anything you want to, as long as you aren't in a hurry. Top speed: around 65. Good cruising speed: 55. Speed up hill with a load: slooow. But it will get there!!! lol.

No, not looking to replace the X5 at all...in fact...the X5 will stay as the tow vehicle...it's a hell of a lot more comfortable than any truck I've driven, and a lot more sprightly. And it's not exactly lacking in power, either...even with 6000# behind her...so...naw...I think she's staying for a few more years...

Business is growing, and it's hard to throw lumber in the back of hte X5, and doors, and windows, and haul stuff to the dump. So...I think a truck is in order...

I'm not in any rush. In the meantime I have the trailer, it's just a pain to deal with some days. I miss having a pickup in the household, and I've been wanting another 2nd Gen Ram for quite some time. I'll probably be looking for another trail rig soon though ;-)

Just too big of a jump from a BMW to a Deuce, eh? Can't say I blame you on that one...
