When ever you buy a vehicle with aftermarket add-ons like this (this being a motor swap and suspension lift) you must always allow yourself a buffer zone of spending for anything that may, and most likely WILL need replaced and fixed. Ask him to tell you the specs of everything and when parts were added and maintenance was done.

Things of this "magnitude" done by someone you don't know can and could be very costly to maintain or just fix up to legal standards.

Good luck.

I would be very leary of that truck, and personally would not spend that much on it. There are way to many potential problems with a motor swap someone else has done. I know from experience.

instead of saving the pictures to photobucket like most people do i just right clicked on the picture and clicked on properties then copied the URL and added the image code. if you dont know what that is you can just click on the "mountain" looking button and erase the "http://" thats already there. then just paste the URL that you copied in there.
