dvarn, yes it's Emerald Green, from 97 a 2500 5.9L 4x4 gasser. My buyer wanted a 12 valve diesel 2wd, there was 2k to get him to the diesel, so I took his truck in trade. I've been needing something with a bit better clearance for trail anyway, I stuck a photo under Dodge Ram Pictures, so color might show better.

My stock '13 CC 4x4.

Took it up an old logging/ATV trail yesterday.



Not much in off-road, but the hill I went up to get there was at least 6" of loose sand and bad ruts, the rears spun out so I had to drop it to 4 low to continue.



Took some pics, and then moved her over a rise near the road to show off some articulation in the coil springs.












Stock tires, may try and upgrade, but they'll do for now, we'll see what fits the budget.....

It's a 97 2500 and an auto (down to 1 leg, so auto is a have to have). But it's got clearance and oil pressures good, compression checked, bearings all good. I'm going through the brakes and giving it a tune up the next two days. Running on 33's R...

Conclusion on the truck I provided in this photo 97 2500 4x4 Emerald green 33" tires on a corrected 3" lift (checked it):

Truck title rcvd. VIN# indicates 8th character as a Z for light duty. It is running 3.55 gearing, with 33" tires, it needs a minimum of 4.10 gearing for off road and light towing (rating 7500 Lbs. 360 V8 gas).

Corrections in progress.....R...

Research.............
