Hey there!

So this week I bought my first Cummins powered truck and the story of my path to the Ram begins last fall, when I bought a 2019 Ram 1500 Sport as a work truck. It's a great truck and has been serving me very well. Unfortunately, driving the Ram the majority of the time caused my 2017 Platinum F250 to sit and after watching money go out the window, it was sold about 3 weeks ago. The F250 was too nice of a truck to drive in a pasture and then sit the other 90% of the time. Still, I need a HD 4x4 truck for chores, so I put some feelers out. Long story short, I found this gem prior to it going to auction and picked it up for the low sum of $3247.50. It's just an SLT (some may call it a peasant model), with 217,000mi and it does have a few codes (P2560, P2BAC, P003A - Coolant low, NOx EGR Code, Turbo Learning Limit) but it does look amazing, the interior is very clean and I did drive it home (about 15mi). I'm very capable around most anything mechanical but never owning a Cummins, my focused experience is limited. I will certainly be using some of the knowledge base here to help me.

The photo posted was after a wash and yes it is as clean as it looks.

Full disclosure: I've always wanted a Cummins but I assumed it would be in the form of a swapped F250/350, as I've always driven Ford.
