So you’ve got $14,000 and you want a used Ram pickup truck. What is out there that fits your $14,000 budget? We took four random cities; Seattle, Albuquerque, Chicago, and Atlanta, and scoured each city’s Craigslist to get an idea of what is available. Condition, mileage, engines, and options all play a part in the decision. But we have no idea what we’ll find, this is just a deep dive into these regions to see the pulse of used trucks in America.
All trucks are private owners and have clean titles. We picked the cleanest-looking pickups with the least amount of miles. Diesel or gas, two-wheel- or four-wheel-drive, we were open to all of the possibilities. We’ll give you a brief rundown of each Ram pickup and a link. Let’s take a look:
