Looking at a 6.4, couple of questions

Looking at a 2008 4x4 lariat with 111,500 miles. It's been hit in the front and repaired but I just want verify that the radiator, condenser and intercooler all slope back slightly toward the windshield. That's factory, correct?

Also, i noticed the coolant reservoir was 1/2 inch below cold low level when truck was warm. Didnt see level when truck was cold. Where should level be at running temp?

Thanks guys!

Anybody? Bueller? My radiator angle question is very basic, really. And obviously if I had another 08 to compare against I would.

the rad is so damn tall if it didn't slant it would never fit under the hood. suprisingly though the 6.7 rad is only slightly smaller and doesn't slant

Thanks guys! Looks like I'll transition from a member of the OBS 7.3 group to the 6.4 on Wednesday - after I make the sale and purchase. Sure hope the 6.4 treats me as well as my 7.3 has!
