Description:

1994 Dodge Ram 2500

I bought this vehicle for one purpose. I bought it to take a trailer from my home in Shelton, A and take it to Minneapolis, N to bring back a playhouse. It was 4,000 lbs and the trailer was 2,000 lbs so my 1/2 ton truck would not do it. It was the right vehicle for the job. It got 20 mpg while pulling an empty 2000 lb. utility trailer, thought that was great. The truck is in great condition for it's age. I am convinced the mileage is correct. I bought it from the University of Idaho in Moscow, D. They got it for a test vehicle to test biofuel. It's first 100,000 was on biofuel exclusively. At the end of the test the took the engine apart and sent the parts to Cummins for inspection. They replaced the parts with new Cummins Parts and had the head done by a local machine shop. It runs great and is very stable, o wandering or any looseness in the steering or anywhere else. I am enclosing the listing information posted by the school and they are extremely honest in their information. The batteries have beed replaced. The air conditioning needs to be recharged. The cruise control works well. Great clutch and the transmission has the 1st gear like the old days where 1st is very low. I think you could regularly start in 2nd without a load but I started in 1st so there would be no excess wear. You will like this one.
Cruise Control works beautifully.
The following is their listing representation along with some questions and answers.

Additional Information:
This was delivered to us with dead batteries so UI Surplus has sent it to the Motor Pool to have the batteries replaced. The Motor Pool will winterize the fuel as well (in case we have some cold weather.)
We requested some additional information and were given this response: "we ran it for 100,000 miles strictly on 100% biodiesel. The engine was dissembles for inspection by a Cummins engineer. The injection pump was sent to Bosh for inspection. It was then cleaned, eassembled and calibrated. The engine was reassembled with new rings, earings, amshaft and lifters. The head was reconditioned by a local machine shop."

Two items should be noted:1) I tried to purchase a history report and it came back with no information. This is likely because the school does not report in house maintainence to the reporting agencies like a car dealership would.2) I got a negative review by a jerk who started making unreasonable demands regarding shipping on an ATV. I refunded his money and told him to "Pound Sand" because I wasn't going to take his crap.
