Default 5.2 low mileage

My 1996 SLT ram 4x4 5.2 has just turned over 90,000 miles. Bought it brand new with 21 miles on it on Labor Day weekend in 1995 for around 20k. 18 years old and garage kept the whole time, so why am I thinking about buying a 2014 2500 Laramie 4x4 for a MSRP of $53,000 when the truck I already have which looks almost new and in truck terms of 90k mileage is just a baby itself. I must be out of my mine, have way to much money to spend or either I just love the thought of driving that big 2500 Ram turning heads. Get a Ram before one gets you!!!

My '96 is still a young 130k miles, although it was rode rough during its time as a Texas Highway Dept work truck. Most people see it as a beat up POS, but I like it. It still has plenty of potential to be a nice truck, and Im having fun putting it back together into something sweet.

I just picked up my ram with 118k on it and expect to double that myself. I have the same obsession as you MoparNation. They all said wtf! why would you buy an old beat up truck? After just 2 months in my care It is one of my favorite Gen 2s on the road.
