looking at a 08 cc 350 DRW

The OASIS says it has new injectors all 8 replaced @ 5,799 miles had 1 batt replaced and had thr rad and T stat done as per TSB

the truck has 42,663 miles now should I be worried Or go for it?

I like the truck i know it will be more of a truck to handle my 5th wheel then my Ram 3500 But I know the cummins is good, dont know about the 6.4.

I agree with pyro2nite. I bought my '08 almost one year ago with 26k, had the radiator replaced at 28k, and haven't had another problem. I say go for it!

I went for it, It is in the driveway I will get some pic and post, Not that you guys never seen a 08 lariat CC before But this one is mine and at 42,670 miles it is the lowest mile truck i ever owned in my life. Any thing I should know about it?? let me know. I got it for $32,380 I thought that was a fair price, and they swaped all 6 of my new tires off my ram onto it for free. the first owner tinted the windows and it looks like the tail lites are tinted. The windows are dark Like i need to drop the window to back up in the dark.
so far I love it.

I always change batteries in pairs though. In fact my stockers from '08 just crapped out the other week. One wouldn't take a charge, and the other is now crankin' the '71 F-100.

The EX is doing well. Still have that ball joint job hanging in my mind...as I hit every bump...I might buy some takeoff knuckles and rebuild and preload them so that I can do it on the street in an hour or two.

Got my SCT tuner back and am playing with all of the canned tunes and the various chaqngeable parameters.

Still trying to find the RAP module..need to reset the door keypad combo. I have had the whole dash apart and all I can find is a PATS module with no master code. I have a list of factory master codes and will start going through all 1000 of them til I find mine.

Thanks again, I really like the EX now. Changed the coolant and oil filters Friday. Oil is clear and the filter was quite clean.

Congrats on the new truck. Get rid of the DOC/DPF and you will have another new truck.
