I see you are in MI, so ROT is a serious issue.
Radiator supports are NO LONGER AVAILABLE for diesel truck, so just keep that in mine because they are the 1st thing to rot. The aftermarket shows a listing for a diesel one, but they are NOT for a diesel.
Rear spring hangers and shackles ROT, but you can replace them all for about $100.
Oil pan is another issue. They cost about $225 and the engine has to come out to replace it.
That about takes care of the rust stuff.
The E4OD is the weak link behind the diesel be weary of flashing lights and slipping.
As for the engine, they are tough and can and will go 500,000+ with proper maintenance
Looking for Blue 40-20-40 seats. PM me !!!!!!!
