Sounds reasonable, always try for lower price.

10-4 This is a pretty nice truck from the pictures and it is within an hours drive so even better.

It may not have a box or programmer but it probably has in the past or a bigger set of injectors. Im not saying not to go look at it but with a hx 40 it will be a dog stock.

Read up on the injector pumps before you buy. You'll need a better lift pump before you get a programmer. They say the Adrenaline produces more power than any other on the 2nd gen and has 11 power levels, all switch-on-the-fly. I got mine before I knew anything about these trucks. Don't get me wrong, I love it. Now I just have to build the rest of the truck to match before I can use it to its potential. It also comes with pyro, boost, fuel pressure, and oil or trans temp gauges. If you have a credit card or extra cash laying around (just in case the pump goes out-$1100). It can be pretty scary when you get those dtc's in your daily driver and don't have the cash to fix it.

well the lift pump and injection pump were replaced about 50000 miles ago and it already has guages, and fuel pressure doesn't drop below 10 PSI at WOT.
