As the title says, I've been looking for a nice rust free second gen for a bit now (I'm in mn). Came across a listing not too far away and he was asking 10k. It's a 2001 Ram 2500 flat bed with a 5 speed that just had everything gone through. Its rust free, it's got 12k on a rebuilt and beefed up 5 speed with the 5th gear but locked. 3k on a valair dual disc clutch just installed. With the final seemingly bit of good news being 400 miles on a completely tore down and rebuilt motor bored over .20 with arp head studs. The transfer case was also just upgraded as well. Now the bad when he took the motor apart instead of replacing the block he stitched it back together using nickel rod and a tig welder. It's my understanding that these types of stitches don't last long and the only real fix is a new engine or a new block, which is a high dollar item to know you need going into a already large purchase. Body has around 360k he told me which I'm not too worried about with it being rust free. He's asking 10k i know 2nd gens are expensive however even with a rebuilt motor I know I got a 4-7k dollar issue to fix. So my question is. What would you guys pay for a truck like this? I was thinking 5k would be a good price but I wanted some more opinions. He is flexible on the price I just want to know what price everyone thinks it makes sense at. Thanks for taking your time to read this and help me out I appreciate it.
