I am a new to diesel and this will be my first purchase. What do you think about a truck in excess of 690K miles? Its a RAM Dodge 2500. I would not be towing anything really at all but for a truck I would rather have too much than too little and I hear the MPG is not bad on these. What should I look for and is this worth lookin at?

Dang, I already sent the dude a cashiers check!

Sorry it didnt work out for you. To answer your question for future truck hunting you probbaly do not need a diesel. You may want one, thts another story. Buy 1st or 2nd gen 12v Cummins and keep it simple if you must have one.

At any rate, 690K miles is insane.

Ebay post is for 690K and 4 grand for the truck. Its the same picture as the one for 23K and 69K miles.
Definately a scam, you couldn't buy the engine alone for 4K

Looks like a scam but it does have a phone number. Most scams dont have a phone number just email. Have you tried calling it?

If you read the description under the Texas post you can clearly see it's a scam. "American Auto Brokers also offers competitive financing rates, so save your cash, save your resources with your bank and let us connect you with our banks and credit unions"

"We accept BANK WIRE TRANSFERS/CASHIERS CHECKS/ INSTITUTIONAL FUNDING ONLY"

Plus they want a $500 non-refundable fee. Definitely a scam
