Basically the most luxurious and quickest ram you could have bought (aside from the v10 ram available at the time)
the V10 rams of the same era were work trucks and not real fast...lol
But, the SS/Ts aren't really recognized yet, and, I think one like that being green (the rarest color) and with 30,000 miles, I'd say maybe 8-9k.
I am basing that off of a 1996 Pace Truck with 11,000 miles near me, mint condition, shiny everywhere, still had plastic on the seats, and, it was for sale for 14k.
But, mine and 98SSTs are probably worth about 4-6k right now.
Give them time, however, and they will be something.
And yes, engine had a few more ponies, exhaust was bigger/louder, wheels, stripes, had all available options standard (besides leather and audio package, that was still an option), posi rear was standard.
Basically, smallest truck with the biggest motor.
I thought I read somewhere that they had 3/4 ton suspension as well to make them handle better. Don't know where I read that or how credible it was, but, I did read that.
And...yes the rims are rare, but, I have 2 extra sets, just in case
