I just wanted to say hello and introduce myself. This is the first time I have ever bought a Dodge truck, but this past weekend I took the plunge. I was looking for a truck that I could keep a long time and that would fit all my needs for a truck. I found a 2004 24v 5.9 Cummins Ram with 255720 miles on it. I have thought about it for a week telling myself I was crazy, but the longer I have it I have almost convinced myself it is quite possibly the best truck I have ever owned. Its still tight, everything works and runs like a sewing machine. Many people have told me with good maintenance this truck could go for a million miles. Im starting to believe it. Im so proud of it. I drove it on a 52 mile trip today and averaged 24 mpg driving at 55 mph, and on the way back I drove on the interstateand averaged 21. AMAZING for a 3/4 ton truck.
