Default My new 05 ram.

Not sure how to start it. But I just got a 05 ram that had some damage to the bed. The dealer and body shop said it would be 500 to fix and it could be. But when I got home I tried to open the tail gate wouldn't open but it will I just had to help. And by coin that I noticed the gate is bent tail light is shot and little more damage than the bed side. I just don't see how it could be but I dunno. IMG_20130810_132459.jpg

I'm right there with you, flaw. Couldn't make heads, nor tails, of where the OP was going. From the pics posted, it looks like the RR was back in to a brick wall or someone smashed in to it.

Have you bought it yet? If so, may I ask how much? If you haven't bought it yet... run like the wind to the next vehicle available. There are tons of 3rd Gen Rams out there without any damage anywhere from 5K to 15K, depending on what bells and whistles (mileage too) are on it.

Yea we got it needed something better. Our old truck was still giving us problems and we put bout a grand or more in it since tax season and still more going wrong. But the dodge is like new on the inside and out other than part of the bed. V6 6 speed. I only paid half of what the truck if worth in perfect condition, its worth bout 8000 and after the body shop fee was added to the loan I paid half.. rides and drives like a dream other than the bed.. if its not fixed right or looks right I'm taken it back to em..
