    i bought this truck from a old man near by i have watched it set for many years and could not stand to see it set any longer. so i bought it for 2500 dollars i was parked due to the Killer dowel pinhad fell out and broke the timing case, the old man had all the parts to fix it but didn't need the truck so never finished the job so i got all the parts with it. i have had good luck so fair i did a motor tear down and didn't find anything wrong, other than the valves needed adjusted. hear are a few pics of the body and interior.

    Wow. do you just replace the timing case and fire it back up? I know there is a metal tab you put over the dowel pin under a bolt to prevent that from walking out again, but that's about it.

    Certainly a steal on it, only $200 more then my truck. Everyone here is smoking crack on the 5.9 cummin's, you could be 2-5 of yours for the price of one of theirs...

    Just me or was the top part of the timing case broken?
    I would've went ahead and fixed the kdp, even if it hadn't moved.

    Only body style of dodge that I sorta like. And it's a dually which is a plus for me, and 4x4 is just icing on the cake.
    Now, is it auto or manual?
