Now for the reason why it is so rare:i dont have the exact break downs that i would like to but out of all diesel rams ever built there were only approx 40,000 12 valves made in 1998 which is already a small number then out of all of the 40,000 take away the reg cabs and club cabs because they are basically the same from 96-98 except interior changes..... i would say u are already down to 20,000ish then take away all of the 2wd and 3500 and long beds now u have a really small number then u figure the leather trucks in 98 were scarce 14 years ago so now after some have been wrecked or flooded or whatever there are very very few left. i have only seen one in the last several years that i have payed attention
numbers seem high IMO
