I'd forgotten about the timing chain. I never had a MAJOR problem with it on my truck. Sometimes it was a bit noisy, but it would be nice to not have to worry about it!

fsuranger, Texas may be the land of the trucks... the fullsize diesel trucks that are WAY out of my price limit! Haha.

I would have to agree with Zach on this one... SOnic blue is the BEST COLOR and its newer with no major mods... always the best way to get them.

No I wouldn't know. I do know that he lives in Texas and there are an a**load of trucks out there. I was simply saying that there has to be a Level II somewhere a lot closer than the ones he is looking at. Thanks for informing me on the amount of trucks in Michigan.

The problem is finding a Level II with the manual t-case. I've been trying to find one but no dice yet.

just got off the phone with a salesman about the blue one. he said it's got a ford warranty until december 23! That is very awesome. I'm a little worried though he said that the truck has been in an accident, though it was a very small one and didn't affect the drivability of the truck. He said that a carfax report would give me all the details about it. Also, he said the owner of the dealership normally won't even look at a vehicle that's been in any accident, but this one was minor enough that they were confident about it enough to sell it. They seem to be a privately owned Carmax sort of place. I've looked into their dealership a little and it seems to be a very reputable place. Still worried about buying a vehicle that's been in a wreck.... any thoughts?

Don't buy vehicle that has been in an accident. Unless they wanted to drop anther 2k off it.

I would say keep looking.

they've dropped about 2k off a reasonable price anyways... NADA says 16-19k, KBB is 19k, Edmonds says 14k in "Average Condition" If it were in good or excellent condition, 16k.

You're still right... kinda nervous about buying one if it's been in an accident. Maybe it was just something minor?

If its been in an accident, walk away.

Not to mention, neither of the trucks is local, so you're either got to fly up to look at them, or have them shipped down here.

Go to a local ford dealer, tell them what you're looking for and let them go find it.

Can they do that? Zach found one right next to him in Michigan that's pretty badass. Then I could meet all the Michigan peeps too!

Go Blue...it's cool man! Its newer... longer time for the warrenty. The ext. warrenty on my truck has saved me over $5000 in Trans work. Good luck and keep us updated.
