I don't know if that is a good price or not. It all has to do with condition and location. Check out KBB.com for pricing. Also consider it is an ST so it is bottom of the line. I think you could get an SLT for that price.

Well wicat3..I got my 2004 ram 1500 Quad Cab SLT 4x4 with only 53k miles for a whopping $10,500. I have had the truck for almost a year now with absolutely no complaints!! Learn from me, patience was my biggest problem and I waited close to 4 months until i found my truck. Trust me, there are always better deals out there man, but keep your eyes peeled. that may be the one for you.

I have seen Hemi trucks out there for about the same price as that. If that is the price on top of the trade in then you should be able to find a better deal for sure.

The kbb value says it should go for about 15000 so i wasnt sure if that was good or not. I havnt gone and look at it yet just saw it online and wanted to know about it. Ive heard of some dodge rams having tranny issues and wasnt sure how true that is. If no one has problems with there trucks im going to go look at it and take it from there. I had a neon and loved the car but needed a truck so i got a ranger but know i need somthing to be able to tow with and so far this is the only one in my price range lol

I have not really seen any members on here complaining about the trannys. Like in all other trucks I am sure there are some guys that have a problem but there has not been a crisis here about them haha.

If you need it to tow then the Ram is a good choice.

I'm not sure you'd be happy towing with a 4.7 .
