Regardless of engine replacement if thats a 4x4 its worth it if the Injector Balance Rates check out. Get the torque app and a bluetooth adapter off Amazon and check it out before you buy! And its an LLY so check out the smoke situation to make sure the headgaskets are stout. :thumb

Also: The duramax will insult that old 350 gasser so bad you'll won't believe you ever got by without it. I have a red RCLB. Sweet truck

I planned on plugging my insight in and checking it out
Can u elaborate on smoke situation not sure what u mean
I know what u mean on the 350
I got a 18ft gooseneck dump trailer that weighs 8k empty so i have to use my lbz to pull it cause the 350 would crap 3 pistons and a tranny if i tried it with that haha

Just make sure it doesn't smoke white on start up. Some signs of sketchy seller: Always warms truck up before you come look at it. Tell him you want to see an overnight cold start. Diesels are strong engines, have a bad habit of seeming fine some times, and puking their guts soon after

Just texted the seller and asked he not start it before i get there
He said its parked in his heated shop and said he would pull it out and let it sit outside if i wanted
He knows im driving 10 hrs and hes been very thorough about the truck so i think its coming home with me:neener

To verify its an LLY make sure the 8th VIN number is a 2. Like stated above make sure injectors check out and it runs good and you'll be very happy then!

Sounds like it might have been taken care of, could be a steal.

Thanks but its charcoal and its in really good shape
It just needs a headlight switch (cant turn on the dome light manually)
And a heater control (passanger side adjustment is broke)
Other than that it just needs some go fast goodies
