Default Soon to be a Dodge Owner, Again!!!

Well, first of all Im Angel, Im in the Army, currently stationed in Texas, married and have a little girl (one big reason to get a truck).

I currently drive a 95 Pontiac Trans Am and the wife drives a Jeep Patriot which I traded a 2002 Dodge Ram in to get and I dont have space for a car seat, so looking at a 2006 Dodge Ram 1500 HEMI

http://houston.craigslist.org/cto/1357261730.html

any Dodge specific questions I should be asking to the owner of this truck.

It has 79000 miles, I have seen it in person, he started while I was there, runs great...

Welcome to the Z!!! I would ask if he has had any trouble with the MDS, what kind of fuel economy is he getting, does he ever tow with the truck, does he keep it maintained, what type of fluids (synthetic or not) ever taken off road, that sort of thing

thanks, he doesnt seem like an off-road type, neither does the truck or the new one he got, I will ask about the MDS and the oil change...I think he said between 15-17 thats what he is getting...doesnt really matter to me as I only drive to work and back and daycare is on the way there (so like 12 miles a day) but with that truck probably drive it a little more than my T/A...thank you both I appreciate it.
