Interesting truck ad

You may think you've put some miles on pulling your RV but check out this current ad I saw...



For Sale here is a 2008 Dodge RAM 3500. The vehicle is owned by my father who used to to haul campers from the manufacturers to the dealers across the US. The vehicle is like new and has been maintained like no other. It has high miles, and is priced accordingly. The truck has 616,000 miles on it. It is a 6.7 Cummins, Auto, 4x4, crew cab, long box. There is no problems with the truck, it is being sold for health reasons. All maintanence records are available on this vehicle from day one. It has had many new maintenance parts and everything is 100%. The vehicle includes a H&S tuner, and EGR delete among other deletes. 4in turbo back exhuast, An 80 gallon auxilary tank with filter and pump. Gooseneck ball and 5th wheel plate, and a toolbox behind that. The vehicle has brand new tires and alignment on it. It has tons of power and gets great mileage. I hate to see it go down the road but I can't afford it myself. contact info edited out.

I'd give this truck serious consideration if I was in the market for something this size.

The Cummins are great motors. Maintained, you'd prolly get another 400k out of it. The rest of the truck, no matter how many new parts is still a 600k chassis, interior,seats, glass, blah, blah blah.

Regardless of miles at that price point I'm guessing it's already sold.

Thats nothing check out the cummins high mileage club the truck with the most miles has over 2 million miles. There are quite a few with a million and a half and a lot with over a million miles. These are all original engines that have not been rebuilt. When you register for the club you have to send the serial number off the engine and pic of odometer so cummins can make sure it is the original engine. Sadly I only have 144k on mine but it has been a great truck and hope to get many more miles out of it unless I win the lotto and can get a new one.
