For Sale- 2001 Dodge Durango 5.9. Red with Tan Leather. Loaded. Located in Fort Lauderdale. $9,500.

Truck is in very good condition and has 60,800 miles. Clean carfax report, never been in any accidents.

Model is "SLT Plus" - the only one higher was the $38,000 R/T - this is identical to the R/T with the exception of seat design, axle ratio, and muffler.

Loaded - fog lights, heated/power seats, leather, 3rd row seats, 9.25" rear end, driver/passenger and rear A/C controls, tow package w tranny cooler, upgraded alt, etc. Two wheel drive because I didn't want/need the complexity of the 4wd system. Gets 16-17 mpg highway.

The 5.9 engine is a workhorse and the same one they put in the big trucks. Running great - tons of power - always well maintained, synthetic fluids, 1 year old front rotors, pads, tires, and have recently done the standard 60k service items. Can find receipts for some of that but I'm not the most organized. :)

I believe the tow rating on this model (3.55 rear end) is around 5000-5500 lbs. If it had the 4.10 rear gears it would be rated 6800-7200. Towed my 19' boat a total of 500 miles with it. I am the second owner, bought it with 22,000 miles and it looked showroom new when I got it. Recently bought a 27' boat that weighs 7000+ lbs so for liability reasons I bought myself a 2004 Durango instead.

It is a nice truck, well sized and powerful, but with the big boat I wanted something with a bit more heft to it.

Please email me if interested -

View of back with 3rd row up. 3rd row also folds down 95% flat to give you pretty good cargo space. I have moved a standard 30" stove with the rear closed. Note that the total width is approx 42" so no plywood sheets. Also storage compartment under floor for tools etc.

Did some hard thinking about owning 2 Durangos and decided that this one has got to go.
