Truck is a dually 3500, QC 4x4 with accident damage. Price might be
good ($4500.00) and will know after I inspect it and get some estimates.
What I'm looking for here is input on the older style versus the newer style
Cummins and of course any issues with that particular truck I may need
to be aware of. Only 160k miles on it.
The 12V's just seem to keep running... the only issue with them was the
Killer Dowel Pin, which is pretty easily fixed. Since they're all
mechanical, there's not really a whole lot to go wrong with them (unless it
was run without oil - then that just makes it angry).
As far as issues with the rest of the truck, if it's an automatic, that
should be checked over (pull pan, check condition of fluid, inspect for
debris, check band tension, etc.).
Of course, all the normal wear-and-tear items you'd expect on a 10-year-old
1-ton... front suspension components (if not already replaced) will be worn
out - if 4x4, front wheel bearings could be close... U-joints... nothing out
of the ordinary. You've got Dana running gear (60 up front, 80 in the
rear), so nothing to worry about there (as long as the fluid was changed,
and kept water-free).
