Friends sold us the truck. They owned it for about 17 yrs here in California. Before that it started its life in Virginia I believe car fax had it as a rental for less than a year.
Now me and my wife are debating letting our daughter take the truck to the east coast (Pennsylvania). The question is can it survive for any length of time with little maintenance.

Just last year it got a new transmission. (Remanufacture). And a few years ago new ball joints. Also rear differential was replaced recently.
Mileage is 140k.

Truck looks very well maintained oil looks clean. Coolant is clean. But do you need to be a diy type to keep it going?
Or what do I have to fix/double check before letting our kid take off with it?
