This guy wants to trade me this K3500 6.5 turbo diesel 4x4 for my dodge gasser 1998 Ram 2500 V10 trade for diesel, camaro, trans am, or firebird

Havent looked at it ye because he lives about 2 hours away so im gonna make sure its a good deal before we meet.

I dont know much about these old 6.5 diesels. His wife was the one who was talking to me and she said hed get me pics of the engine bay the bed and the interior when he got home then ill post them up. She said theres no mechanical problems she knows of.

Now my truck is pretty much perfect, the engine is clean enough to eat off, new tires. basically i would drive anywhere and not worry.

Id really like the diesel because i know more about them than gassers and the better mpgs is a plus. What do you guys know about the 6.5 TDs?
Ehhhhh that looks like she's a little beat! IMO.....not in the greatest of shape

16-18 mpg probably isn't true. And if you took it to the track, the time slip would say "TBD". Personally, I'd keep the Dodge.

Well my 1994 chevy i had before the dodge was great to me, plus if 7.3s werent priced their weight in gold id have 2 but alas that is not the case so im looking for a cummins or duramax/chevy diesel but since not many dodge owners will trade their truck for the same truck without a cummins im kinda stuck with chevy. Id like to get a 70-80 camaro/firebird/or trans am because they look badass but theres slim pickens here that arent all trashed to hell
