    That truck has some miles on it, but for how loaded it is, how clean it is, the fact that it's a crew cab and that it has the Hemi etc., that is a killer price for that truck. It's messed up because where I'm from, in Pennsylvania, that exact truck with those miles and features would sell for no less than $20k.

    If you don't mind the miles, I would buy that truck right away. It has a ton of factory options and it looks to be in really good condition.

    Good luck with the purchase!

    I'd suggest a 06+ with the 5.7. I had an 06 4.7 and at highway speeds (75-80mph) I was getting 1-2 mpg better but losing 100hp. Honestly I would have liked the power.

    I traded it in with 170k miles and zero major repairs with just typical service. It was a quad cab and worked great for our family. Sure more space would have been cool, but there was plenty for us.

    If you want to spend more I just picked up an 09 Sport with a 5.7 and 30k miles for 21k and I love it but you can't go wrong with an 06. I still miss mine and I'd still have it if I didn't drive 1000 miles a week for school.

    Good luck on your decision
