FS 2003 Dodge 3/4 ton quad cab single tire with six speed

I sold my Airstream along yesterday and now am going to concentrate on moving along my Dodge.

It is a short bed with the nine way adjustable driver's seat in cloth. It has the premium sound system and a single cd player plus cassette tape. It is the SLT. It is silver with black interior. It has a formed removable bedliner. It has the towing package with a brake sending device included. I have an excellent reese leveling hitch setup with the double cam anti sway mechanism available. The truck has two of the original michelin tires with about half tread and two new matching with about half tread. It has bilstein shocks not yet installed. The brakes are factory original and still showing plenty of pad. Everything works as new.

It has been in for warranty work twice. Both times for seeping plugs on the head. I cannot remember any recalls on it.

Its a nice clean truck with 85K miles on it. I have used it to tow my Airstream and my utility trailer mostly with benzes on it. Between 1/3 and half the miles are towing something, with probably 5 to 8K of it towing the airstream the rest my utility trailer. It drives and rides very nicely and the steering is very precise but not twitchy.

It is in excellent condition. There is a mild indentation on the lower right front door where I got too close to a building which had some projecting trim low. The paint is not scratched. The rest of the body is pretty clean with a few very minor scratches where I got too close to bushes. No rust at all. The bed has been replaced after being damaged with one from kentucky.

Towing my airstream at 70 mph I got mostly 12 mpg with an occasional 13 if running a little slower and 11 if in headwinds. Towing the utility trailer with a benz on it I got from 14 to 15 mpg. Driving solo I get consistantly over 20 running 75 with the air on and have gotten as much as 23 if driving on secondary roads with lower speed limits and running 62 mph.

I have a log book documenting every tank of fuel and every oil change. When running dino oil I changed it from 3 to 5K miles and with a 50% synthetic mix I have been running it from 5 to 8K miles. It uses no oil between changes that I have noticed. I don't believe the engine is fully broken in yet. The mileage just keeps improving.

It is the best tow vehicle I have owned by far after towing with six suburbans and one ford van. It is stable, powerful, fuel effecient and comfortable.

I will add pictures as soon as I can get it done or email them to you.

I am asking $19,975.
