Hello, is there some special info i should know of while buying a used Ram 1500. currently in an Avenger 08. What should i look for to make sure i get a quality truck? Where could i go to spray on lining, a bed cover, maye a scratch removing system or something??

Well hello and welcome to RamForumZ, glad to have you! Is there a truck you already have your eye on? Me, I would do a simple PDI (pre-delivery inspection), check all the belts, hoses, fluids, etc. I also look at wiring, and am even OCD enough to pull a spark plug or two! As far as interior condition/exterior paint, dings, etc. that all depends on what you can live with. I know down here, for a couple years, while I was in the market for a used vehicle, I was checking the fuse box under the dash, pulling back carpet, just to make sure it had not been flooded, but you shouldn't have to worry about all that.

Anyways, good luck, and hope you find what you are looking for. In the meantime, enjoy the board and keep us posted on what you get!

Dang that is one sharp truck. You should check out Line-X for spray in bedliner. They have a very nice quality product.

That is a nice looking truck, looks like it is in good shape. I love red, and I really like the body color grille. Is the interior in that good a shape? Good luck, what are they asking for it?

Thanks! There askin 11k for it, 71k miles. It seems it was once a work truck, some nice scratches in the back and tail gate but nothin too big. I figure a spray on an hard bed cover would make it look almost new, and then an srt hood and HIDs(first) once i come up with 2k dollars for a down payment =/
