thanks jamzwayne.

i always wanted one so when i saw it , i had to have it.

2004 with 24,000 miles, when i got it 100% stock and a 9 out of 10.

i put the 20" factory style rims, lowered 2" in the back. #4 pulley and a tune. i have all stock parts stored away.

I talked to alot of guys that had them and most said, do a pulley , tune and enjoy it, after that you start messing with the drivabilty and the fun factor. part of me want to do a built engine and whipple. but it would really kill the value of such a clean , low mile truck.

For a personal truck the manual is more owner preference but a whole lot of the HD series trucks I see are owned by a company. Not a lot of fleet managers want to fool with changing out clutches because some moron was driving with his foot on the pedal.
Also keep in mind that the Ram's castrate the power on the manuals. If I remember right, it's somewhere around 50 lb-ft.

reminds me of sienfeld's joke about chops sticks.

who uses them?, surely by now they have seen a fork and knife, why are they still using chop sticks.

My two door is great. Swb. V8 small block 4.6. Only thing is that it has two small rear doors for storage.
