Sell it. Mods don't really add value, just solidifies the value so to speak. I got $8k out of my old truck that had bald tires and a leaking ac evap core.

Personally, a 2wd diesel is worthless. The Cummins weighs over 1000 lbs and will get stuck on wet grass. We had a 2wd Duramax and it was pathetic off pavement.

I'm on the hunt for a 12v 5 speed Cummins myself. For $12,500, you can get a 4x4 with less than 200k miles. I'm looking at a 97 3500 Sport 4x4 5 speed with 185k miles that's mint. I just have to wait til the guy gets back from vacation. He's listing it at $10,500.

yes, my Dad's shop is huge. 8 bays, a lift, paint booth, and a fabrication/machining bay. We can do just about anything in there. I need to get pics of my little brother's hobby shop. its big enough to hold two bluebird school buses.

ya i deff would not be buying a 2wd dont worry lol but if i could get 8k out of my truck i think i could afford to get a 2500 diesel. just every where around here dealers want 15-20k for one. found one for 11k but its all the way in florida :/

just need to decide what i wanna do... i could just wait a few years and buy a new one... right now they are offering 10k off plus my dads discount would take like another 6k off... so 16k off a brand new ram or buy a used one now... decisions decisions

That shop has always been my favorite place to spend my free time. I remember helping my dad design it when I was only 10 years old. Telling him every thing I would want in a shop if I were to be the one building it. Suprisingly he listened to me. I am thinking on pullin my trailer down to his parking lot and camping out for a few weeks to finish up my interior... and look for a job. Technically we are only 20 or so miles apart, but there is a huge mountain in the way that turns it into about 80 miles.
