Hey everyone, new to the forum. Had a plan to get my first diesel for a few months and now it's time. I am not new to mechanics tho. So keep in mind I can do all my own repairs. Of all the homework and test driving I've done. I've decided a 98.5 to 02 24 valve is suitable for my needs. Just wondering what everyone else has to say about these. I haven't seen them yet cause I'm in Michigan and all our trucks are rusted out lol. Assuming I can get all these for about 9200 or less. I have alot more on the list just picked out a wide spectrum here from my list. Thanks

Looks like they all come with trailers so that's a plus.

Hahaha u hear ya blue. But any truck that doesn't have a built auto I plan on putting the ats in it soon anyway. Same with the pump. And I don't do a lot of towing, and when I do it won't be too heavy so the 53 block isn't a huge concern of mine. I always let my motors warm up and cool down
