137k is not all that many miles for a gas motor if it has had decent maintenance. Plenty of 300/351 trucks around that run great at well over 200k. Our last Bronco had around 160k when we sold it,...

The older Cummins (5.9 12 valve) are very durable motors that seem pretty easy to work on. The rest of the truck is the problem. The auto trans in the Dodges makes the E4OD look like a paragon of...

Have you checked to make sure the door is moving with the controls and not just by hand? A very common issue is a lack of vacuum to the heater door motor due to a cracked vacuum line to the system....

The company my wife works for had an International box truck with the TE444 in it. It had glow plug issues that the hack mechanic they used couldn't get right despite the shovels full of cash they...

The almost stalling/erratic idle could be the IAC valve. May be just a dirty connector, but probably just a worn out part.

I've used the BFG ATs on several trucks over the years, and they are the best compromise between a dedicated snow tire and a reasonably aggressive on/off road tire I have tried. Most sizes are...

Nice, and you can't even look through the rear fender arches!

We purchased a GN 34' enclosed trailer in preparation for our next move. When we moved out here from New England, it cost over $8k, and I still had to move most of my tools separately. That was 11...

Seems pricey for the miles and overall condition. Betting the bed has been painted, check the rear wheel arches for signs of repair.

That's '97 PS money around here. Nice truck, but that's a boatload of cash. And I have to wonder if there is any rust over the rear arches, as that's common even out here on 20 year old trucks now.

Why is that? The trailer was rated for 12k payload, we had 11,900 on it. It was my truck that was being put to the test.

Even a replacement IDI should be available for relatively little, so if the rest of the truck is good, even if the motor has serious issues it may still be a good deal.
