Got a 2006 mega cab over the weekend and was told it got new bearing and piston rings when putting in studs. Why would you do that? New to all this how does the build look.
260,000 miles. Ya I thought it was weird to tear it all down and only replace that. You would think if they seen anything wrong they would have replaced it when they did that tho.I mean it COULD have been just a high-mileage rebuild. I don't see the mileage listed on the ad, which doesn't inspire a lot of confidence. But to fully disassemble the engine only to replace the rings and rod bearings instead of a full rebuild makes me wonder what went on with that truck. Sounds like it was ran HARD. Which isn't a kiss of death, but this entire scenario is definitely something that should have been asked about BEFORE buying instead of after. But I get it. We wanna buy, get excited, and then think, "Oh crap" after the purchase is made.
no I looked at everything and it looked fine. No leaks. Everything felt tight. It was a 7 hour drive but he drove 3 hours with truck to meet me. Everything ran well. Just didn’t know if there was a reason for someone just to do that.Did you take it to a shop and have them put it up on a lift and look underneath?
I would try and get detailed parts info/shops that did work for future reference.Well kinda already got it lol any advice

There’s top end deep and lower end deep.…Why wouldn't you roll in new main bearings when that deep into it though? Just strange.
Sorry injectors we’re done 15,000 miles ago. Also has a smarty on it but I have it in eco mode. Added more pictures of truckThe reason many of us wouldn't recommend that truck is because of all the mods.
6" lift with 37" tires and then cheap Moog suspension parts isn't great.
Then the 100HP injectors aren't stated as new, so they are most likely questionable remans.
It most likely has some kind of programmer or interceptor module.
Keep a close eye on the engine oil level. Not only for going down but for going up.
Good luck with the truck.
Perhaps start a new thread with pics and more details of the truck.
