Which one to buy?

Recommended Posts

Ok so i was in an accident about 4 months ago and the truck is being totaled by other partys insurance. Ive only had it a year and i havent made a big dent in the loan so after its paid off i wont have much left to play with so i am gona be looking for a new truck. I liked having the 6spd. I dont want to go to low on year. Wana avoid the 53 block and KDP problem. I had great mpg on my truck so wana stick with same options. I am willing to hear some advise and opinions. My question is is a 5 spd better than the 6spd. I know that the 6 spd have the Dana 80. Anyways what shall i get?? Im currently thinking about this one. http://www.canyonstateauto.com/inventory/view/5618626/2000-Dodge-Ram%202500

The truck sure looks nice. I see it has an intake. Is that a dry paper filter I'm looking at? (good) Oiled medium (bad)In the pictures of the engine. I think I'm seeing something I can't ID (frame 11)... maybe a plug in the exhaust where a EGT probe was previously. Probably had gauges. Did it have a chip or programer & was the truck abused?
