My dream truck used to be a 2003-2004 Dodge, the one with common rail but before the emissions stuff.

My truck doesn't have a single thing right with it except the motor. Stuff needing work:

Front end
Transmission
AC
Speedo/odo
Probably rear diff
Windshield
Headliner
Somethin's squealing under the hood (bad bearing somewhere?)
Cooling fan will not disengage (clutch?)

I fixed the perpetually dying lift pump by going aftermarket.

The thing needs $10k of work.

Somewhere around 350,000 miles on that body, and 21 years. My truck is old enough to drink now.
