I've sold my last three cars on CL. Last was my 99 Dodge Ram 4X4 a few years ago. Met the buyer at my work, he test drove it and he came back the next day and counted out $6500 as we sat in the cab...

"Car was running smooth as can be. No problems AT ALL."

Clear case of If it ain't broke, fix it till it is. Go back and redo and recheck everything. Next time don't 'fix' stuff just because.

Seems overkill to me, granted my car's in California and garaged. In 13 years of owning this car I'm on my 2nd battery, and it still cranks like it did new. When it starts to show some problems...

I bought mine brand new in 03. It's been garaged and driven the entire 13 years in California (Bay Area) so it's in pretty damn good shape. You can go underneath this car and see not a spec of...

Yep. I wouldn't even consider doing this if I were you. Why spend that money when you don't have to? I have an 03 UL that I've owned since new and it has been anything but a money pit. Agree...

I agree with those telling you to sell the rims and get proper fitting ones. OEM's seem to fit really well. ;)

He's had it since APRIL. That's 250 miles a month IF we count a full April and a full July.

Nice grab. I'd just drive the thing and not 'blow out' the engine anymore. It's not a 67 Coronet 440 ya know.

For quite a while I had 16's from a 2001 that I would swap with the OEM 17's on my 03 Ultra. I could tell no difference between the 16's and 17's so I eventually just sold the 16's.
