Well, the early 99's I believe had a smaller turbo...it was definitely something to do w/ the turbo and possibly something to do w/ the connecting Rods. There is a general agreement that for modding purposes the late 99's and later are the best. I think the cutoff date may have been October. Look around on here, I know there are threads about it.

My lil bro has a 99 and he has ran the crap outta that thing and has had very minimal problems (mainly due to his driving), heck the fuel filter hadn't been changed in 100k miles. He's well over 200k now.

"99's are fine. The early ones had a different turbo, but if you're gonna mod the crap out of it you need a bigger turbo anyway. The later ones are just easier to upgrade. I prefer early '99's to the later because of the better tubbo sound. If you plan on doing little mods, like intake, exhaust, and chip, you will love it.

I have an "early 99" now and the turbo screams compaired to my old truck, which was a "late" 99. I love my truck, absolutely NO complaints here!
