Overland Classifieds:: 2001 Dodge Ram 2500 4×4 w/ 1984 FWC Fleet

The Dodge Ram 2500 is one of the most popular full-size trucks on our forum, and for good reason. These vehicles provide excellent payload and towing capacity, dependable motors and drivetrains, impressive capability, comfortable interiors, and enjoy excellent aftermarket support. We’ve featured a number of adventure-equipped examples recently, including this 1994 with an Alaskan camper, a 2017 AEV Prospector with a GFC V1, and this 2015 with a Norweld canopy. However, it seems that older models, such as this 2001 offering, are considered some of the very best thanks to a robust 5.9-liter Cummins diesel that will comfortably exceed 500,000 miles. In addition, the 2001 model boasts up to a 3,768-pound max payload, which means it’s well-suited to a fully-equipped camper or habitation box. If you’d like to see how this platform can be outfitted for travel then check out these inspiring builds from CJC Offroad and Olympic Overland. Today’s example has covered 177,00 miles and features a long list of premium modifications and is topped with a vintage 1984 Four Wheel Campers Fleet.

From the Seller:

I am a diesel mechanic, and I have owned it since 2014. It’s been sitting for almost a year now and I can’t justify keeping it. I drove it down to San Diego to tow another truck back up to Reno in August and it did great.”
