New to me truck

7 posts in this topic

Thanks guys.  I wasn't even looking for a truck. Not to mention a diesel.  A buddy had it and was going to trade it in.  They didn't offer him anything.  He said if he was going to give it to them, he might as well give it me.  I got it for a pretty good deal.  I just hope the automatic transmission holds out.  I believe that's a weak link in those.  I got it cheap enough to build it if it don't.

Some of those autos will do a funny shift, I think the 1-2 shift gets funny.  All that needs is a band adjustment.  It's externally adjusted. Cakewalk.
