We inspected that truck. Going to need some engine work. It has a nasty case of piston slap.

I think it had lockers. Have to check tomorrow with Robbie. The piston slap is probably from a broken or collapsed ring. It is not bad, but will get worse pretty soon. I think if you offer the dealer $5k you might even get it. Been there for a while and the dealer is not that big.

You can buy it, wheel the #@$&# out of it and change motors when it goes. It is a good platform for a DIY'er with a spare motor in the back yard.
