New to us tow rig

Picked up from my son's father-in-law last week. 1998.5 Dodge CTD, 3500, 5 speed. Only 125k on it. Put new Toyo A/T tires on it. I'm so thrilled. It runs great. New Bilstiens coming soon. And a Smarty box.

IMHO, the best mod you could do would be an exhaust brake, standard trans or automatic, it is fantastic when in any hilly terrain. It should get the job done for you.

There is no need for an exhaust brake!!

Gary's 5er never leaves the site.
Seriously tho, that looks like a nice find Gary.

No offense meant or intended Gary.

Just trying to poke a little fun.

Still a nice find, and coming from the PNW it should be pretty well rust free.

Just curious...what's a 1998.5 model? Where there 1/2 yr changes or something?
Looks like a good find. Very clean.
