I would love to have one with a Eaton-fuller RTO6610 transmission. But I need one like more holes in my head. I only drive 5 or 6000 mi a year any more.

During my working stage of my life, I would drive some 25000/year.

Adam has averaged less than 12,000/yr with his Dodge/Cummins

I had one 30,000 mile year, the rest have been pretty easy years.

It's brought me to Nebraska 4 times, Wyoming, Montana, Oregon, and up and down this dumb State with zero issues. If I could just make the cab bigger I would keep it and do that.

In 2010 we bought an 05 2wd with the Cummins for 15 grand which was a good deal then. At your prices I should at least get my money back and then some but have no intention of selling. It is a towing beast, doesn't know our 24' fiver is back there.

I like the idea of the Fuller 10 speed Road Ranger. Empty at the red light you can start out in 3rd gear. But with a load and in a soft dip, you could start out in 1st.

10th gear is the same as the 6 speed original transmission. 1st gear is 11% lower than first in a Getrag and there's a couple shifts to get up to the 2nd gear ratio in a Getrag.

Gear spacing is a 20% drop in rpm across all the gears in the Road Ranger. The shift throw distance is much shorter than the New Venture & Getrag 5 & 6 spds. But requires a air pump and tank to power the air cylinder that shifts from low to high range and back.

But a used rebuilt one is going to cost $2500

Very nice Adam. I have a 05 cummins and I love it. Ill never go back to gas. That truck ruined me lol. Roy, have you priced a new diesel lately?? That's not a bad price at all. 116000 miles. That's not even broken in for a cummins.....
I've got a 99 D2500 ext cab.  Bought it to be my last truck probably will be unless somebody kills it.   Fuel pump went out fried inj pump So I did a little work to it.   Edge Jammer Stage 5 inj., Edge Attitude programmer, ATS Intake, AFE AF system, ATS ex manifold, MBRP turbo back 4" ex., Fluiddamper, FASS fuel pump, Blue Chip Diesel HP inj. pump, Flexlite 202 Electric fan, Amsoil bypass OF kit, Amsoil trans filter kit and more 151K in 2008 when I did the upgrade 158K now.  15K WOULDN'T buy it.  Weak link is trans that will be the next upgrade.  It's on it's last leg.  That will be a $3000-4000 I don't have @ this present time.  I'm a Ford man BUT this Dodge is best truck I've ever owned.  21mpg pullng 20' flat bed w/car on it @ 80-85mph.  27-31 around town.

2wd's don't hold their value at all, but yes even so you could get your money back plus a little if the mileage is okay.

There's an 01 3500 4x4 dually at a local lot for $19,000. I also have an 01 3500 4x4 dually and book on mine is over $14,000. I'm going to sell it also, thinking about $13,000 on it.

My parents are buying the red Dodge from me and the green one should sell soon so the search has started!

I wanted to buy this one, says "FINAL PRICE" $34,779, so I expected around $37k OTD. Have cash and I'm ready to buy, I called them up yesterday to plan a trip down to get it and they inform me that the listed internet price doesn't include any extras and the actual price is $56,484...over $20,000 more then they have it listed for! After a few heated moments and emails to them they said they could knock $5,000 off, but that is still WAY to much for me. Between them and ATT sending me a $300 bill, yesterday wasn't very fun! lol
