How much did you pay for her? Running? Mileage?

I love the 94-01-ish Dodge trucks. I want a 97 diesel if I can find one for somewhat cheap

Great bondo work btw! Is that how you fix rust spots too?

thanks bud

95 1500HD 4x4 318

100,xxx when i bought it..paid 1500 bucks cash for it (bought it from a friend)

when i say heavy duty i mean its got the bigger transfer case, heavy duty shocks and coils, not to mention it sits a tad higher than most because of it (well it used to when it was new)

and yes its a 94-01 bodystyle (my favorite) the only thing that changed throughout that was the interior and mirrors in 98

EDIT:
as far as the bondo work goes..that was just temporary to patch the whole that was there...there shall be primer and paint over that once she gets back on the road...then the doors will get the same treatment
but eventually when the truck gets repainted and the underbody gets coated, those areas shall be cut out and replaced...

I'm officially jealous! $1500 for all that!!?? Oh my GAWD! Haha I'm lucky to find any half decent trucks for that, let alone as good of shape as that one! You must have some pretty good friends then haha!

If I buy a cheap ol' Chevy, it'll have it'* cancer spots and Bondo just might work... Hmmm...

well,it was pretty rough when i got it..but a cleaning..some seat covers,subs and a good wax and she cleaned right up

dont be fooled by the glammer...i bought it with some problems..(pads,rotors,calipers,upper and lower right side ball joints and a few other issues)

but with all that fixed and a few other goodies and this things easily worth 4 grand

although she aint going anywhere..hence the nickname "The Mistress"

only got about 102K on the clock..and other than that bondo spot and some surface on the doors shes really rust free (dont look in the bed O.o lol)

That'* still a steal for $1500! I want a truck that doesn't run, or has a silly enough problem that someone will dump it for cheap. Then put some money and elbow grease into it, and BAM, nice truck for me Too bad I haven't come across any beaters like that yet...

I'm lookin for a Chevy, but if I can find a 94-01 body style Dodge, I'll be on it like flies on ****!
