"I am selling my 1998 Dodge Ram 2500. It has the 24 valve cummins in it, not a 53 block cummins the good ISB 235 horse block. It is white club cab. It has 191,000 miles on it 5 speed manual transmission, dana 80 rear, 60 front, overload springs, rear swaybar, 4" tbe, towing tuner from hypertech. I just put calipers rotors pads up front, wheels and tires on it but the tires prob got 1/2-1/4 tread. 35's. Had an injection pump and lift pump put on about 50,000 miles ago by the previous owner. "
