Default Returning.....

Yet another absentee coming back....over 4years...can't believe it....

In the past 4 years I have traded my 2012 Cummins 4x4 for a 2018 Duramax Denali 4x4(really nice truck but it's not a RAM) and then trading that for 2016 Ram Ecodiesel Limited (made more sense for the commuting I do, but still had to have a diesel pickup) and now have a 2022 Ram 1500 Ecodiesel Limited Longhorn 4x4.

But onto the part I am quite excited about....my oldest daughter turned 16 the beginning of March and being as we live in the country (about 15minutes from town) it only made sense to acquire a third vehicle for her to drive, so my wife or I aren't having to make multiple trips per day into town for work, school, sports, 4H, etc. When asked what she would like to have for a vehicle she said her preference was a truck...preferably 4x4 and a Dodge! After looking(started a year ago)and not finding anything that met my standards, I struck a deal with my dad.

Dad had a 2002 Cummins that, since he retired, had pretty much been parked, only using it to move his fifth wheel twice a year, and taking it for the odd "Sunday Drive" to exercise it. We agreed that I would buy his truck, on the condition that if he needed a truck, he could have it any time he needs and that way it stays in the family.

Long story short, we now have a pretty clean 2002 Ram 2500 Cummins SLT Plus Sport Quad Cab 4x4 with 450,000km (280,000mile). The truck is bone stock (outside of a FASS fuel pump that dad put on when he bought the truck in 2006), fully loaded, Camel Tan leather.

It has a few minor issues that my daughter (and my 13yr old son....who wants a 1st Gen Cummins regular cab in the worst way)and I are going to work on.

No time for boys with this girl...basketball, volleyball, school, 4H,etc....when she gets a spare minute she wants to be by herself....

She's pretty happy to have it...and knows that she can lose it just as fast as she got it...it's not in her name...and her little brother has already laid claim to it when she's done(even though he really wants a 1st gen)....
