2001 Off Road package Ram. Quad cab. Automatic. 4x4. 140,000 miles. All original (motor/drivetrain), runs smooth, heat/ac perfect. 5.2. Runs smooth, no leaks, no smoke. Asking 7500, is this a good deal?

If it had the 5.9L/360 I would say it is a good deal but the 5.2L/318 is just too underpowered in the Ram( especially a 4WD ). I had a 5.2L RCLB 2WD Ram and it was such a dog power wise, and such a gas pig, I would never want one again.

Agreed, NO - way too high.

I'd agree with somewhere around 4-5K

no to change subject, but is really 5.2 a "dog" for you guys.. (whatever "dog" means in a truck)?
Maybe because I have a 5.2 with 5sp manual, but IMO is a great engine, love the acceleration in 2nd and 3rd gear.. and in mine the 4x4 is like I have nails in my tires..


anyway.. if that 01 had a 5.9L (Cummins) then it would be a great deal ;)

yes the 5.2's are dogs. i thought just like you when i had that truck(1998 crewcab 5.2L 2wd) i thought it had some get up and go... till i got my Hemi, those things are way underpowered

interesting.!
was your 5.2 5speed or automatic transmission?

also it could be another way to put it...
instead of put down and engine that many people have and like calling it "dog"
you can say the Hemi is better.. :)

anyway, I'd never have a Hemi, after this 5.2 5speed I want a 5.9 Cummins 6speed.. that would make a cat out of the Hemi :D

I would say no like everyone else. also I did not know that you could get the off-road package with a 318, i figured they were all 360s. and since the off-road comes with a 4:10 rear.
