Hello all. I'm new the forum. I've just ordered a Ram 1500 Outdoorsman EcoDiesel a few days ago to replace the '98 Ram 1500 I currently have. Looks like this might be a great place to keep up to date on EcoDiesel happenings and gain a little knowledge on owning a Diesel as this will be my first.

Welcome to the forum
Glad to have you here!
How long have you owned that 98' ram for?
Thank you!!!!

This particular one, only a year and its only got 115k on it! I bought it from a buddy for $5K last year after the tranny in my 98 Ram sport **** the bed and a host of other problems showed up. Wasn't worth sinking the money in since it had about 180K on it.

Now its my turn for a new car. Wifey's car payment is almost gone and I just couldn't pass up on a diesel Ram. This will be my 4th Ram truck, once it comes in!!!!!

Nice! Got to love knowing people who are also into trucks and even regular cars, I know a lot of people that have found clean low mileage cars through their friends.

Did you at least sell your old 98 for a decent amount of cash for what it was worth?

I'm still in the process of trying to sell it. Dealer only wants to give me $2k. KBB came out to just under $5k. It needs a new right front tire (tread is splitting and causing a wobble) so I priced it at $4300 hoping someone will want to snag it without me doing any work. Its in good mechanical condition, no leaks or oil burn. So we'll see. I have a solid 5-7 weeks (so they say) before the new Ram comes in. I'm hoping to sell it on my own. If you know anyone, I'm in Southern NY. :D
