Going to look at my first dodge truck. Used to be a pure chevy guy. Its an 03 quad cab ram 1500 4x4 with 85,000 miles. It has black leather interior and brand new tires. I dont have an exact price on it because its not listed and the dealership was closed today. KBB says its worth $14,895.
Whats it really worth?
Any problems with these trucks that are common?
Nice looking truck. It has been some time since I bought a used vehicle (my last used purchase pre-dated CarFax), but I would request a CarFax report, see how much of the maintenance records you can dig up to see what the previous owner/owners did to/with the truck, and how many owner(s) there have been. It looks to be in good shape, but that can be deceiving. Being as it is 4WD, I would check to make sure it hasn't been dogged out or hot-rodded, no serious tranny or transfer case issues, in addition to the usual visual checks of belts, fluids, hoses, etc. Not a bad price (from Kelly), but see what they offer, since the mileage is not all that bad and the body looks to be in good shape. Good luck!

You mean you haven't signed the papers yet . What are you waiting for?
well im still deciding on selling my chevy or trading it. Im also going from no payment to a payment. But they were closed sat night when i found the truck online and then looked today and they are open tommorow. So ill be there tommorow seeing what they can do. Im looking to get into it for 200 or less a month. I looked at a 05 quad cab 1500 with some 24 inch wheels with 47000 miles for 18000 and it was only 230 a month which is about 30 more than i want i wasnt a fan of the 24s. Then again im not a fan of whats on this truck. Id like to have a set of stock chrome 20s but not sure where to look for them.
