Hello all, after much though I am going to sell our turn key overland rig. This has been a great rig for the last 5 years. It has never let us down, gone everywhere we have wanted to go and comfortable for hundreds of miles at a time. This is a turn key, add your food, clothing and bedding, it's ready to go anywhere rig. My build thread should show you everything you likely want to know. For anyone knowing the Ram trucks and Cummins engines, this is the last full year of the 12 valve engine (most desirable) and last year NO SMOG is needed in California. '98 and newer you must smog. Located in San Diego, CA

$20,000 (Will NOT separate truck and camper, registered at RV) Not looking to trade for anything other than maybe a very done, driver to almost show quality '64-'72 El Camino. Not replacing with any other offroad vehicle, moving away from this part of my life.

The only bad things are,
Paint in fair to good shape. This era of Dodge trucks didn't have the greatest paint. NO RUST!!! AZ truck from '97 to '11. San Diego '11 to current.
A/C works when charged but slow leak. Since 99% of our trips are fall through spring, with temps in the 70's or below, wasn't a high priority to fix.

Hi there Mike.  What's your asking price?  I'm in San Diego, but will be flying out to Costa Rica tomorrow at noon.  Maybe there's a chance I can look at it tomorrow (Thursday) morning?  Let me know, thanks.  Darren-8585396506

where are you located in San Diego?  It's too bad...It's just what I'm looking for.  Maybe my flight will get cancelled or delayed due to weather...otherwise if you are somewhat nearby, would it be possible to look at it this evening?

Sorry for the late reply.  Just got home.  It has been a crazy night with traffic and such.  With my work schedule and the weather (not going to open it all up in the rain), Sunday will likely be the first day I could show it.  FWIW, I am in the Mira Mesa area.

yup...bad timing.  Looks like a great rig...and I've been looking for awhile.  Well, timing is everything, as they say.  I'm flying out tomorrow and won't be back in the US for awhile.  Maybe I can have a friend look at it.  At any rate, good luck with the sale.

I have gotten a number of folks asking for pics of the interior.  I guess I really never had any.  Took a few before it got dark.  Will get more this weekend.  Dash is in great shape, which is normally cracked on this vintage.  It has been under a dash mat from day one.  It is very dusty under it (first time I have removed).  The driver side seat seam had split and was repaired prior to my purchasing.  This looks exactly the same as it did when I bought it 5 years ago.  It was a very good repair.  This is the only interior damage.

For full disclosure, I moved the truck tonight from the driveway and on the south facing side (side away from the house), I saw this starting.  This is the crappy paint issues that Dodge and GM had during the '90's.  This only occurred since Thanksgiving as when we were out on our last trip, the pass. side was not like this.  The driver side had these spots from the day I bought it and have not increased in size.
