Going to look at a 14' Cummins on Sat

Anything I should look out for? It's a 2014 3500 DRW, 4x4, 6spd crew cab. 39k on it. All stock. I'm not familiar with anything newer than a 2nd gen.

Just check the CarFax and or routine maintenance of oil and filter changes, including fuel filter.
Font end should still be fine.
Give it a good drive, and also get out on the highway and check the ride at 70-75MPH for any vibrations.

Good luck and keep us post.
We'll want pic's when you do get one.

Ok thanks. I've been reading about this front end vibration. I was hoping Ram would have had this steering thing figured out by now.

Make sure that you don't have the 68-75mph (rear end) shake. Take it for a LONG test drive.

I've been reading threads here about this shake. I am assuming it will be clearly noticeable. My last cummins was an 02. My hopes were high that a 14' would be far superior to the 02'.
