no he copied and pasted the craiglist ad

nothing really to look out for, the 3.0 motors are strong and last forever

just keep up on the suggested maintainance and you should be fine

Nice truck. Only thing I would watch out for is the Fabtech spindles. Some people have had bad experiences with them breaking.

okay i was saying if he actually needed to look out for anything specifically like engine issues... in which case a 3.0 is a strong (and when i said strong i meant dependable) motor

sheesh

if you are LOOKING for things to do it then of course drop a 4.0 in it and change out the gearing
