get a fuel pressure guage and be sure to ask if they did anything with the stock lift pump, if not invest in an aftermarket one

I agree 100% with cajuncummins, first thing I would recomend to any one buying a vp truck is get fass on there or another type of lp right away. It dosn't say anything about that on there and He dosn't have a fuel pressure gauge, I would be mostly concerned with that, VP's arn't cheap or any fun to put on. Also another thing to keep in mind is the 53 blocks. Good luck -Ethan

It's got heated leather which is very uncommon on these 2nd gens. And once you have it, you'll never live w/o it. I love my heated leather for many reasons.

Don't expect to get that 26-28 MPG though. Still a great truck.

I just bought an 02 3500 and got hosed. I have had the truck for three weeks 5 days of which I was able to drive it because of my 2 x 2 schedule. Any way I waould check the engine codes to see if it has thrown a 216 code. The check engine light wont nessicarily come on if it has thrown the code, it has to do it so many times before it comes on.

02 Dodge 3500: Auto tranny, BHAF, Auto Meter Cobalt gauges, 4" exhaust, and most importantly heated leather seats because Alaska is cold. :givemebeer
