Thanks all,

Appreciate the recommendations, advice, and warnings. Last night I was searching Extended Warranty/Service contracts for used trucks, and was shocked how expensive some are. I think I will take jham's advice, and save the money to pay for repairs as needed from my favorite diesel wrench here locally instead. I'll just try to find a clean one owner under 100 k mile truck that hasn't been abused.

I agree dsldude, that compression test sounds bogus. And yep, there are a lot of scammers out there. If things don't look right, you just got to move on.

Good advice sdowney. I will make sure to follow it to the letter before buying this time around. Wish I would have done that 12 years ago when I bought my 97' 5.9L 12 valve 5 spd manual 4x4 extended cab w/ 157,000 miles on it. I think I had to have about 5 k worth of work done to it in just the first 6 months!
