I'm trying to coax my neighbor out of his. Its got 35K on it and is in perfect condition.

Love both these trucks, really dig the single rear wheel version though. Nice winch too.

It's kinda funny, these old Dodge trucks with the 12V Cummins have almost a cult following, especially the 4X4's. My guess is, it won't be easy to talk your neighbor out of his. With only 35K miles on it, it's not even broke in yet. These old Dodges are notorious for 6-800K miles, easy. Good luck though.

Mechanical, simple, tough as nails and will run forever. You can't beat them. Nothing you can buy new today has the longevity and durablity of a 1st Gen Dodge, in my opinion. What year is your 12V?
