I am considering purchasing a 2006 5.9L with a little over 300k on the clock.
Two individuals have owned the truck.
The first one has a meticulous service HX on carfax.
Oil and filters every 5k miles for eight years that they owned it.
2nd owner has done pretty much the same thing, as well as adding Lucas on every fill-up.
The truck has a tuner, but according to the current owner, who has had it for the last nine years, it is only for towing and increased trans line pressure on the trans.
He does not have a valve body installed in the 48RE, just some things to increase the pressure.
Sorry, I do not know much about the 48RE.
Truck drives as expected, smooth shifts, etc. ZERO blowby, and according to the current owner, everything is pretty much bone stock.
Looking underneath the truck, I could not find a leak of anything anywhere, i mean, it is nuts.
The body has zero paint fade and only 1 ouchie, which is not that big of a deal.
It's leveled with 35-inch tires on stock wheels.
I didn't notice it smoking during the test drive.
The steering seems a little loose; he claimed to add Carli ball joints.
It may need a steering gearbox as the truck does wander some.
I am trying to wrap my head around what might be down the road or what other things I should look for.
I mean, I get that it has 300K, but bone stock on pretty much everything?
Thoughts, ideas, and suggestions would be much appreciated.
