2005 Dodge

I know this is kinda off topic but, I have an opportunity to buy my buddy's 05 Dodge 2500 crew cab 4X4 auto with a diesel, it's only have 50K on it and he wants $17K (He's in a pinch) I have been around the truck sense he bought it and he takes care of the truck better than his girl lol. I wanted to know if anyone has heard of any problems they have or anything. Any help would be great.

Thanks guys

JUMP ON IT!!!, thats a steal of a deal on a great truck (ummm engine), yuo can't beat that Cummins, I looked at new Dodge's yesterday, the only thing keeping me from getting on is losing to much on my truck since I have only had it about 10 months.

I'm gonna keep my PSD and use the dodges as a work truck if I get it. Do they have any tranny, axle, frame or any other misc. issues?

I love the cummins engine. The only thing keeping me from getting one is the truck it comes in. But the newer dodges are way better than the older ones. and that would be a good deal you could probly made some money off that truck spend it on your ford!!

I'd personaly purchase the truck if I was in a position to knowing full well that if I HAD to, I could turn around and liquidate it and make my money back or more...

That is an absolute steal on an 05. I would not pass it up at that price. Getting 500+ rwhp out of the CR's costs quite a bit less than a 7.3, and perhaps a little cheaper than a 6.0. I would upgrade the lift pump first, they are sufficient but if you chip it it will have a tough time keeping up. Scott at S&R Diesel Concepts hooked me up with a FASS for an unbeatable price. The Injection pump is leagues ahead of the vp44. The trans still is not the greatest, but you can throw in a converter and valve body and it will hold the power pretty reliably before you need to start doing shafts and stuff. I've done all the same things workwise with my 03 2500 that I did with my 99 F250 and it has done as well or better than the Ford in every way. And putting aftermarket parts on the engine (turbo, intake, etc) is so easy you'll cry for a challenge.
