We bought this truck with 200,000 miles on it and it lunched a lifter at 236,000. Didn't strand us though, was just making a funny noise. Put in a reman engine. Then the Turbo needed to be replaced. It's just shy of 300,000 miles now. We spent more on repairs in the first year than we did on the truck, but it's been great for many years now. We need to run it into the ground to get our money out of it at this point. Other than the traumatic 1st year, I sure love the thing. Finding a V10 manual is going to take some patience but it will be a nice truck. The ZF 6-speed is a really nice transmission. I sure love ours.
