Dodge owners are looking at the surging values of 'new' vintage pickups like this 1999 Dodge Ram 2500 Club Cab SLT and salivating. They last forever, are incredibly stylish, and most importantly, a Dodge truck like this can do pretty much any job you put in front of it, no matter how big or how dirty. With the venerable Cummins 5.9L Inline 6 Turbo Diesel running the show under the hood (arguably the best production diesel ever built), a heavy-duty longbed that'll carry anything and features a 5th-wheel towball set-up, and a gorgeous extended Club Cab interior that's in great shape, this big Ram has everything you want in a full-size truck.

The big, rounded-off style of the '90s BR/BE pickups works particularly well in big-boy, 2500 'Extended' Club Cab form. Crisply rendered and very butch, this rig looks like it could pull an ocean liner out of the water. Still wearing its original paint, the finish has a solid, strong driver-quality look that refines the otherwise bullish features of this big hauler. Certainly not perfect, there are minor imperfections that can be seen upon closer examination of the paint and body, but for a 23-year-old truck, this Dodge sure looks good when it's cruising down Main Street. The big chrome grille, heavy-duty bumpers, oversized mirrors, and, of course, the oversized bed and heavy-duty tailgate all add to the big rig feel, although you'll ultimately discover that this pickup is pretty darned civilized out on the road. The 8-foot bed has obviously been used with that towball back there, but it hasn't been abused, but rather protected with a thick, spray-in bedliner, and with the addition of a heavy-duty trailer hitch on the rear bumper, you can pull just about anything you want with this truck. It has lived its life under the careful eye of just 2 owners since new, here in warm, sunny Texas, so there are no critical structural issues to worry about underneath. Get in and put it to work!

Original gray cloth upholstery on the front buckets and rear bench seat is in great shape with plenty of comfortable padding underneath, making long-distance cruising a pleasure. The upholstery is in shockingly good condition considering the truck's mileage (although 146K miles are child's play to a Cummins diesel, but more on that later) and the big extended cab feels downright spacious inside. Original carpets are protected by a set of rubber mats, so no worries about getting in with your boots on, and for a hauler like this, you're going to want options: cold A/C, power windows, locks, and mirrors, cruise control, and a tilt steering column. An original AM/FM/Cassette stereo is still in the middle of the dash, showing off how everything is 100% stock, including the giant dashboard (which is in remarkable shape), and the factory gauges, switches, and controls within it. The original headliner is in great shape, the door panels at the flanks are too, and as an on-the-column automatic there's a ton of legroom up front. Open the 'clamshell' rear doors and climb into the back seat, where everything is clean and well-preserved with space for three.

Dodge's legendary 5.9L Cummins Turbo Diesel I6 was built for jobs like this, and that motor is the main reason these trucks are always gobbled up on the open market. Quite frankly, if you want a hard-working diesel truck that won't leave you stranded, you can't do much better than a 24-Valve Cummins, and all you Power Stroke and Duramax fans can go ahead and send us your hate mail we know you guys have plenty of downtime with your trucks sidelined at the shop. Cummins diesels are incredibly popular in builds today as powerful, low-RPM torque monsters with significantly better fuel efficiency than V8s with similar internal displacements. With a modern direct-injection unit on top (that's right, no waiting for glowplugs), it's an unparalleled torque factory that shrugs off the biggest loads you can put behind it. The big, low-RPM engine isn't stressed at only 150K miles on the clock, so it will run practically forever and despite a number of modifications available for these trucks, this one remains pretty much bone stock, with signs of maintenance throughout. It's very tidy but not overly detailed under the hood, but being pretty isn't this truck's job; it prefers to work for a living. Dodge's heavy-duty 4-speed automatic transmission offers good gearing to make the most of the Cummins' torque curve and a tall overdrive that turns highway hauls into relaxing road trips, and with a massive fuel tank, you won't be stopping for diesel all that often. Southern living is most visible underneath, where it's extremely clean and well-preserved, from the heavy-duty suspension to the recently rebuilt front end, and the stock exhaust system really sounds great. Finishing off the look, the long body sits on a set of blacked-out ProComp alloys fitted with 245/75/16 Cooper truck
