Thanks for the tip, I'll hold off on the O2 sensors. If it just needs spark plugs, I can probably do that myself.

I like the color. He hasn't kept it a winter yet, but has done a lot of maintenance/repairs. The aftermarket HID kit isn't encouraging, either.

That's pretty minor stuff for a 17-yr old car, though.. Nice low miles at 102K.. The asking price is a little stiff, but I'm pretty sure that could come lower..
He is a young man, hard worker, with plenty of money... He hasn't had the car long.. I talked to him about it, a couple of weeks ago.. He really likes it..
But, the word from my son is: He is buying a house, so the car has to go..

I had thought the independent rear suspension in the Ram would make it ride very smoothly.
Smooth ride and Dodge Ram are never supposed to go in the same sentence. We've owned 5 different ones, 1999 3500 dually, 2001 2500, 2002 2500, 2006 3500 srw, 2006 3500 dually. Not a single one of them had anything but a bone jarring teeth rattling ride. Even when we looked at 1/2 tons I couldn't get past the miserable ride. My Sierra 2500 rides better than the Ram 1/2 ton we test drove last year. Sad but true. The ride in my F-150 was wonderful and while not bad, the Sierra took a bit of getting used to.

I've ridden in a 2012 Ram 1500 crewcab and I was impressed with the ride. The current model has rear coil springs and is regarded as one of the better ridding 1/2 tons. I've sampled an f150 lariat supercrew and was impressed with the ride, but it was a while ago, so I can't really say how the Ram compared.

This is exactly like my 2002 Pathfinder with the exception of interior color. Out of all the cars I've owned this is the only one I ever loved. I kept it 4 years and about 60,000 miles before trading it on an '06 330i.
I'd love to have another one like this for a second vehicle around the house, Home Depot runs, taking the dog around, etc.
I wish I was closer to this one, CarFax was clean and I talked to the lady on the phone, she had all the right answers but can't bring myself to buy it sight unseen.
Anybody in Little Rock?

The pictures look clean. I like the look of those and the Infiniti QX4. The thin door panels turn me off (many older Japanese cars had thin door panels like those).

I had an 01 Pathfinder LE from 01-05. It was probably the best vehicle I've owned.
