In the IF land question.

I want a new Bomb round the street truck I'm down to a few trucks. Give me some of you opinions. All trucks round $4000.00

1996 F-350 2wd dually under 140k miles Automatic really clean.

1995 ext cab 2wd under 160k miles Auto. ok aint the cleanest

And heres the mixer/mind F'er ones!!!

2005 Reg Cab "doomdoomdoom" 6.0 Auto 2wd really clean.

and well i'm at it 1994 reg cab 12 valve- I kinda like this truck

either one I buy will be mildly budget modded so after I buy the truck I'll throw maybe another $2-$3k in it.

Well shoot me some ideas/ Mainly truck's gonna be run a few errands/Make wife miserable while I take her to mall and slam a few friends in the seat.

Dually's can suck to park at the mall and if your not towing heavy why get it.
Would most likely be the one I'd go for
6.0 will cost a fortune to fix anything but makes good power stock.
12 valve good engine but the rest of the truck will fall apart from around it.

I'd go for the 96 f350 myself but I like the dually look.

I'd say pass on the dually if you aren't towing heavy. PITA to park or drive in town. Also, factor in the cost of replacing 6 tires vs 4.
6.0hno Nuff said. Not a terrible truck, but they have quirks and cost a fortune to repair. Friend of mine is in the process of replacing his second set of head gaskets in the last 12k.
12v Cummins. Great engine, cheap and easy to get power out of. I've had a couple and dollar for dollar they are the cheapest diesel to get respectable numbers out of. IMO dodge trucks are terrible. They will literally rattle themselves to death driving down the road.

The cummins, as far as power goes, will be the best bang for your buck, but dodge trucks from the 12v era suck! They literally do fall apart. That's why I sold mine.
