The time has come
 
for a desision to be made and I am looking for inputs. Anything that you got will assist in my decision. So a couple months ago I bought a beutiful used 2002 dodge ram with a 4.7. I figured that I could squeze enough power out of it to keep me happy, I was wrong. I have done the big 3......CAI, exhaust, tuner, just not good enough. I adverage between 13 and 16 MPG with the power of a 4 cylinder honda, thats probly exagerating just a bit. So my decision is pretty simple. Stick with what I got or get this.....

10,023 total miles???? Go for the SRT man!

I'm wondering what the question really is? At $26000, that's a steal, and the low mileage is just another bonus!

Dude you live in Hawaii!! Nice weather all the time!!! BUY IT!!!!

I believe that i would jump on that quickly, low miles, beautiful Ram, price is good for stateside prices, fantastic for Honolulu's high prices

I would trade it for the SRT if you want more power. Not a whole lot of places to open her up there but you will have a great truck. I lived there for three years and the best place for any play time was going towards the rifle range just off H1.

OMG, she is really sweet, 10,000 miles she's new,, I say do it

I am really thinking about it but I need to talk the better half into it first. Its kind of tuff because I have only had my current truck for 2 months or so and there is a 19K difference between the two. We will see, going to go and check it out latter today.

That price is FULL BLOWN RETAIL with a $6000 mileage add. You'd be taking a big risk buying that truck at that price. First of all, MOST banks will lend you 120% of KBB WHOLESALE, which on this truck is about $20K, so be prepared to have a good chunk of change as a down payment. Second, and more importantly, if for ANY REASON, you need to sell or trade that truck in (say $5 gallon gas, or $7 per gallon being in the Aloha State), be ready for a $17 - $18K trade in value. Dealerships and wholesale buyers will NEVER give you an extra penny for the mileage add.

With that said, it's a great looking truck, so the decision is yours to make. Good Luck!

PS: Sorry to be the voice of reality. I'm a car broker by profession, and I can see a disaster in the making.
