So did you have the original motor rebuilt or did you replace it with another

My motor just turned past 246 K and I am starting to plan - wish I could put a 3.5 ecoboost but that is probably a pipe dream
I put in a new motor. It wasn't much more than getting a rebuild done and with over 300K on it, it made sense for me...

I still have my 01 with 360,000 miles and just like Doug Watts I had the engine replaced the transmission rebuilt and the rear end rebuilt.

There are many s/t s in the Florida area…sold very well. Because no salt…..except beach….be careful there or norther truck ..are plentiful and cheap…3k to 5 k running v/g condition..no rust no rust no rust…I own 5 s/t two sports. Lol
1 k for bad motor or bad tranny truck
There are 10 in junkyards now parts galore…plus exploder parts are interchangeable there starting to show up in junkyards because there 20 years old…but there trucks easy to fix and repair. Great hobby.. get off tic/ tic ..go

I believe it about the rust. My 04 is a Florida truck and the reason I bought it was no rust anywhere. Some cosmetic scratches topside but being a 20 year old truck in Ohio without rust is very uncommon. It would mean it spent it's life in a garage, and only came out to go to the car wash. But, it has a lot of miles. That car wash must have been in another state.
