2005 Dodge Ram 2500 Up For Grabs
If you’re looking for a clean common-rail 5.9L Cummins in the Midwest and you find one, expect to pay the asking price. In the case of this ’05 standard cab, that number is $18,000. More than 95-percent rust-free, the Laramie-trim third-gen has 190,000 miles on the odometer, was recently treated to new (OEM) upper and lower ball joints, wheel hub assemblies, axle U-joints, and a fresh 450hp South Bend single disc street clutch. A Rough Country 3-inch lift, installed less than 3,000 miles ago, makes room for 33×12.50R20 Federal Couragia M/T’s fitted to 20×12-inch Vision Rockers. An old-school TST PowerMax is the only power adder.
Pro Stock Domination
Gordyville 2019 proved to be an eye-opening weekend for the Justison Pro Stock tractor team from central Illinois. Not only did the Justison’s 6030 John Deere coined “Corn Fed” take the win on Friday evening, but its second Pro Stock machine, a Minneapolis-Moline G1000 Vista named “Wheat Fed,” stole the show the following night. On both occasions, the Justison’s winning tractors were driven by Lance Little, longtime tractor puller and owner of Tantrum Enterprises. Both tractors will be shooting for the coveted win at the National Farm Machinery Show’s Championship Tractor Pull in February—and momentum is definitely on the Justison’s side heading into Louisville.
