I'm looking at a 99 3500 2wd 5-speed ext cab laramie with 350,000 miles it is totally stock. It had a gooseneck behind it a lot and is a local trade in. I'm going to look at it this week. I'm not an expert in diesels but I'm not naive either. I know the basics to look for like blowby, the 53 block, drivability, listening for noises and all that but I need a little advice on maybe the tranny, rear end and advice on a truck that was worked for its life and has over a quarter million miles.


I was looking at the "Black Mamba" crate engines...anybody used them? advice? Or should I rebuild the cummins should I need to?
