The world of Craigslist car deals can be difficult to navigate successfully, but at least it provides a bit of humor now and then. Case in point is this 2008 Dodge Ram 2500 pickup truck, currently listed for sale at $39,999 on Craigslist in New York. That price may seem a tad bit high, but given all the extra goodies the owner's added over the course of his decade of ownership, the right buyer might end up getting a seriously great deal.
One glance at the photos, however, reveals that the seller may have a long time to wait if he hopes to get anywhere near his asking price, as the paint job alone suggests the right buyer may be a long way off.
First, the good. This truck is a monstrously capable pickup, a Dodge Ram Mega Cab with a 6.7-liter turbodiesel. Mileage listed at 108,000 and change shouldn't scare many buyers off, as Dodge in this era was producing Rams meant to last a lifetime. It's clear from the listing that the owner loved his truck, even if his description leaves a little to be wanted in terms of clarity and spelling. A 10.5-inch lift by BDS, Fox shocks, custom wheels, and enormous new tires also belong in the truck's plus column.
Luckily, unlike many Craigslist ads, the seller had no problem getting some undercarriage shots, and in this case it probably required little more than bending over ever so slightly. The underside shots seem to confirm the claim of "no rust no nothing 100 percent" and Fox badging is readily visible, to boot.
While Ram trucks tend to aim towards the simple, utilitarian vibe, this truck has gone in an entirely different direction when it comes to style points. The paint job is described as "southern comfort" in a reference either to the truck's Florida origins or the spirits brand, while a snake skin interior "less than 1 year old cost 2k" and bedecks much of the interior trim. Two TVs, two 12-inch subwoofers, and two amps sound to round out the entertainment system, though the system seems likely to be drowned out by "6 train horns."
The listing ends with "...and so much more" but in reality, it's hard to imagine what could be more "more" than exactly what this ad already shows.
