thats cool i was in the usmc but got out in 09.whats wrong with your truck?i know 6.0s have a really tough time keeping themselves intact.i got an 05 v10 and for some reason it doesnt run in the winter.ive replaced every possible thing i can think of but still havent fixed it yet.not even the dealer knows whats wrong with it.i bought the truck knowing i would do this swap eventually though i just didnt expect to have to do it so soon.hopefully we can get together and do the swap on both our trucks.

dunno, dont think anything is wrong. got it cheap only paid 10500 for it with just under 300k on the dash. trucks immacculate but i bought it over here so i wont know engine condition til this summer. i figure with that many miles and bein in that shape either it was well taken care of and already upgraded or that with the money i saved i would put that towards the parts to do the swap and just do it when it finally blew

thats a great deal even for the mileage,just make sure you do an undercoating on the frame cause these trucks are very easy to rust.i wanted a diesel but i myself got my truck for 8k.its was everything i wanted but the diesel engine.its just a bare bones work truck,no carpet all vinyle interior with manual 4wd shifter.it is a auto with the torqshift trans but im going with the dodge 5speed so i can make the swap as low cost as possible.

fully loaded 06 lariat fx4, I want to either build the trans in mine or swap in the 6spd allison. im also aiming for a 24v or a cr. but who knows maybe i have a rare 6.0 and ill get another 300k out of it
