    It will do low km's but an older truck 2005. But as good if not slightly better than my Jimmy got with a 4.3 V6.

    However I am trying to get a big 2 year computer contract, if I luck out and get it I can sell this and easily get my money back and raise enough to put a hefty down payment on a 1 or 2 year old truck. and keep payments around 300. I don't want a truck loaded to much to go wrong. I priced a new basic 2018 Dodge with the 5.7 at 45K so a 1 or 2 year old would probably be 35K+. Than it would pretty much last me forever since I only average 10,000 a year.
    But will see otherwise this is still a good truck with the 20 inch tires it's the highest not lifted truck I have driven.

    Got some Satin 20 gauge sheet metal to weld those few rust spots I found and want to pull the box liner out so I can clean inside the box. But that will have to wait until Spring as the truck just barely fits in the garage. Good thing I did not buy the club cab with the 8 ft box it would not have fit.

    Got a great deal on a rack was on sale at Princes Auto for 105 bucks than went on sale again Monday for 60 went back to Princes and they gave me back 55 bucks. Sweet.

    Just need that ramp to go back on sale as I missed the last sale thought it ended on Thursday not Wednesday.

    Want to build this come Spring as well theirs is so poorly designed. But those stupid Tariffs have almost doubled the cost of metal. Probably cost about 150 to build but mine will have a better design.

    When looking for a new truck, look in June, you’ll get a much better deal as they are trying to clear the lot for the new model year. That said the dealer I go to offered me a brand new Ram 1500 Big Horn edition for $38,000.00, the sticker price was $62,000.00. I walked away b/c it didn’t have an anti-spin (posi-trac) rear end. Sounds like a small issue, but once you’ve had one you won’t want to go without.

    Roe, I agree LSD is a game changer when it is required. I no longer have to put in 4-wheel to pull boat up ramp. That the problem waiting till the deals come on, you have to settle for what's left.

    I’ve had LSD on my last 3 trucks, 2 Dodges and a Ford, prefer the Dodge version. Once you’ve had it, you don’t want to go without. I really notice the difference in winter.

    Finally got my Tires put on bought Cooper Discovers All Season, on sale for 175 a tire + install and warranty $995.00. I think that was the best I would find. But it took them 3 hours to install. I was watching the guy and I swear he was going in slow motion. Have to go back to get rust treatment last thing left. I was hoping to do it today as well but I think I would have had to stay overnight.

    The local tire shop has Cooper tires, has not had Discovery tires in a couple years. Hope you checked the date they were manufactured.
    Take the warning labels off. Darwin will solve the problem.
