I just bought a 2001 Quad Cab and I'm curious if putting a small box on it to get a little more power and better fuel economy would be a really bad idea. I don't know the history of the truck and haven't tried to contact a dealer with the vin# yet.

It looks like the motor has been out of it at some time because the hook on the front of the motor has been tweaked pretty good and you can see where the hoist left a mark inside the hook.

if it's bone stock why has the motor been out of the truck ? seems suspicious to me 230,000 miles is nothing for that truck I would definitely do some more research before I purchased it ! modding it would be fine if there is no kind of problem with the motor but you need to check out the tranny and definitely would want to put gauges as a first step.

good luck whatever you decide :thumbsup:thumbsup:thumbsup:thumbsup

see it it really was the engine that was replaced not just the head, or if it originally had a "53" block
and post in the 24 valve section
