    117k got it for a pretty good deal.
    Will end up needing to replace the lifters to the non mds, at which point I'll cam it as well.
    Put GT's to shame on the highway. Lol

    Replace the timing chain too. With that many miles, if that is the original timing chain, it's on borrowed time!

    Have you seen the 6bt swapped 300? That would fix the lifter issue

    LOL, actually, I have! My brother got a dead 5.7 (timing chain broke) from a guy who was putting in a 12V to replace it.

    No clue, probably is. Lol hadn't seen it mentioned before. I know the fords are bad about it.
    Add that to the list of "while it's apart."

    Thinned the herd. Lol
    No truck for awhile. Currently I'm driving one mile to work. But probably about to go back to full time welding. I like what I do where I'm at now. (Do all the mechanic work, run equipment, got my class a so I can haul stuff, etc) but doesn't really pay the Bill's. Lol plus benefits suck.

    Bouf'em. Lol probably won't buy another for quite some time. Definitely won't buy another dodge unless it's a 6.7 6 speed combo. I knew better. Lol

    The 6.0? Around March.
    Yeah, I think the dealership tried to cover up some trans issues. Had brand new fluid, but two weeks in was screwing up.

    No I was thinking the OBS. I remember you getting rid of the 6.0 and then getting the cummins.

    The old blue powerstroke? Regretfully traded it on the 6.0, though now I even wish I kept the 6.0. Zero breakdowns.
    The white flatbed was my brothers, but I sold it for him.
