I'm looking at a few early 90's Cummins Turbo Diesel duallys right now.

What is a reasonable price?
I haven't really got off to ask how much they want, but I noticed one is going for $5,500. Is that too much?

How many miles per gallon could I get ?

Thanks,

Look at http://www.kbb.com, http://www.edmunds.com and http://www.nada.com for pricing information. Stock 4wd cummins pickups should get 18-20 mpg, sometimes more. It depends on your driving style (speed and accelleration), whether you tow or haul a lot and any modifications done. 1991 or 1992 was the first year for the intercooled cummins, which is what you want to get (trust me).

Which years are you looking at? The 91 to 93's are pretty good trucks but I dont think they have as much power as the 94+. I paid 4500 for my 94 cummins, but that was a steal. My truck gets me 24mpg or so running around here on top of the mountain, but when I get down to the flatlands I get almost 30 cruising at highway speed.

The 4wd 90-93 cummins are generally between $6000 - $10000 around here. Depending on mileage and options. If I remember right they were 160hp and 400 ft/lb torque.

Sorry guys. Been on assignment since I made this post.

I think a 2WD would suit me good. I'd never use the 4x4 anyways. I just need something to get me through another 1 1/2 years of college. I just want a Diesel because I like the way they sound and the gas mileage is great. I also need something tough enough to pull my popup camper 100 miles without struggling and getting me 7mpg (87 Ramcharger).

I'll get details on the 3 that I'm looking at on Monday.
