Well, I'm finally home from picking up my truck in Texas. Drove GREAT all the way home.....20 hours straight through. Here's my problem though, I stopped by my dad's place to show him and he kinda ridiculed me. I bought a very well maintained '03 2500 QCLB 4x4 with 311,xxx miles on the TRUCK. At 268,xxx it had a new long block installed along with new turbo, injectors, glow plugs, sensors etc.... then had a rebuild auto tranny installed shortly after and finally in 10/10 it got a new TC. Now this thing rode great except it does need new shocks up front (leveled already) and a new tail gate. But for $11,500 I feel I got a good truck for what I'm doing with it (80% daily driver 20% pulling a 24' trailer with a small mower and maybe other stuff). He implied that my axels are way too high miled and I jumped the gun on it. What do you guys think? Did I buy a keeper or do I maybe sell it and buy something else? The inside DOES NOT look like a 300k truck at all. Opinions and service tips are greatly appreciated as this is my first diesel. What do I need to look for going wrong. BTW, I live in Illinois.
