    My great grandpa had a clean red one under 100k miles when he passed. I wanted that damn thing so bad as a highschool grad, but such a dumb idea. I was already getting 13 mpg with the other truck I had and tried to convince my parents I wouldn't notice dropping 3 more mpg to 9. My fucking wallet would've been charred to a crisp trying to go anywhere other than the grocery store, and I'm happy my parents said no. BUT shit that thing would have been sick built

    Yes! A very important quality to have indeed!
    and yeah I understand as well as far as seeing things from the outside, was not getting upset In any way about an opinion lol. that thing I ran it like hell. I would put a quart of oil in it every 3 weeks bc I believe the plenum head gasket was shot, but I was at 200 k miles already and could've fixed it but was lazy. Only left me on the road once and that was when the fuel pump went out at like 170k. Yes, interiors all were shit back in the day, the quality and reliability is what outweighed that I feel like.
    Only interior issue I had with my dodge was the WELL-KNOWN cracking of the front dash; which the PO solved the problem by keeping it hidden with a dash mat :thumbsup:

    there most likely is, but I worry about other things with my vehicles before paint crosses my mind haha. As u can see I used my other truck daily without fixing an oil leak that cost me a quart of oil every 3 weeks. Best protection I would say is parking under a ramada or in garage. My last truck only was kept in a garage for maybe 6 months when I had it. This one has sat in a garage ONCE

    i am sure if it has any significant miles it has been out in the sun on the road too!

    paint should be very worrisome i would think as its a major expense to have properly professionally redone if it needs it, unless you are so blessed to know of somebody that has the skills and equipment
    its probably way more costly than to have an engine rebuilt (i think?)

    If anyone has been on the fence with the NOCO jump starters/chargers or missed the group buy, might want to check them out. Amazon has nearly all of the NOCO products on sale today (ends in 14 hours).

    The GB150 is massive and on sale @ 173.54 (savings of $200!)
    NOCO GB150 product page is here - https://no.co/gb150

    Canceled my pre-order and re-ordered with the sale price on the Genius10 charger also. Saved $25

    Ha, I tried one too for the first time a couple weeks ago. Tasted like plain club soda with a hint of whatever flavor it was supposed to be. Couldn't even taste any alcohol in them and yet somehow they're almost 6%? No wonder college girls and Tyler like them so much.

    I admit they weren't as bad as I thought they'd be, I thought they were going to be super sugary or something

    the axle that I left on the side of the house is now in the middle of my front yard. Can't wait to hear the story on that one
