im looking at buying a 1996 Dodge Ram Sport with the 5.2 V8 -4x4 , with 146k. the truck looks very solid, no rust or major damage, the asking price is $3500- is this a good deal ?i currently own a 1998 ram with the 5.9 , 4x4 as a parts donor if needed, i would like to know if it is possible to swap out the 5.2 for the 5.9 , and will the tranny's also need to be swapped ? if anyone knows please let me know
I'm not a Mopar fella, but it they're like the Chev 305/350 should be a bolt in. I'd offer him at most $3000, you can find clean older trucks around with a little bit of searching so if he wont take it you can always look else where.
