Great used truck

We did our research and love everything from the mechanics to the abilities of this truck. It is great for our camping off road. It’s not the most comfortable ride but the Laramie edition is

4.1

This truck is a BEAST

The crew cab is smaller than today's crew cabs, but the power is there to get the job done. The interior and exterior styling is ok. Everything is under the hood. The 6.7L Cummins is a beast and tows like a dream.

4.3

Many happy miles of travelling.

I have owned this vehicle since day 1. It's primary purpose was to haul our #5000 slide in camper. It has done the job well and given us many carefree miles with trips down and up the west coast and clear across the country to our new home. Did have to upgrade the automatic transmission after a trip down Hwy 1 PCH. Too many hairpin turns hauling very heavy. Otherwise just normal maintenance.
