    99 dodge ram SPORT 2500 turbo diesel, you may have to put a mileage chip in it to get the 22 MPH, but it has alot of torque, about 500. and it is very very strong. can pull anything. its not a brand new truck but its a great all around truck. i have 3 of them. im am on the fire department here. and i made one of them a fire truck. and works great with a 250 gallon water tank+a pump+tools, and can still hit 0-60 in about 10 seconds if you know how to drive it. and another one of mine is a show rig i built. i win alot with it. and my 3rd one is my personal truck. and i have almost 400,000 miles on it, and still runns like it was fresh off the lot. and you can gt them for next to nothing now. you could find one in desent shape. for around 10k maybe a lil more. but its a truely AWSOM truck GREAT FOR EVERYTHING. and is fairly cheap to work on now. SOUP IT UP!

    Message me if you want all the specs, and any more information. i can give you dang near everything you need to know about one. good luck! happy new years!
