Ready to buy first Dmax
Hi guys, new here to the forum and to diesels. I am about to pull the trigger on a 04.5 CCSB 4x4, 183k, 4" cat back, edge juice, w/ air bags. It is in pretty decent shape, there are some scratches and dings here and there and it will need 1 or maybe 2 injectors, has a fuel gauge that doesnt work, and possibly a few tie rod ends...for $12k.
What do you think?

Price seems fair, if not low. I don't think the miles are an issue if it was taken care of. My truck has 222K and it still runs great with no big problems.
Before you replace the injectors, do the DIY injector cleaning. My balance rates are near perfect 20K miles after doing it.

Just out of curiosity, why do you say it might need 1 or maybe 2 injectors?
