The paint the passenger side back door doesn't seem to match the rest of the truck too. I'd be asking for a carfax on it. May not mean anything or could just be the light.

Its also got what looks to be the fixed out tow mirrors, another sign of an early 99. It does however have the foil on the intercooler tubes, which if I remember right the e99s didn't have....mine didn't.

Carfax should give you a dom too, let you know for sure what it is.

Yeah, and the spider looks like mine so I'm taking a bet on it being an early 99.

That being said, the early 99s had forged rods I'm pretty sure.

ya they do all the way from 94.5 to 200 have forged rods
but the down side to that is that the D66 is the only real bolt on turbo that you can go with which is a great turbo. but limits options on bolt on.
but on the other hand there is a guy on here who has been try to sell a d66 forever so maybe i can get it cheep

Yeah, I plan to get the d66 once I get a few more miles on mine and it needs to be replaced. You could also swap everything over from a late 99 on, but thats not cheap. If you can get the right truck for the right price though, it may be worth it.

You can get pretty decent hp with a chip, the d66, and the right sticks. Certainly didn't deter me from mine since it had such low mileage and the price was so great on it when I got it back when fuel was almost 5 a gal. I plan to turbo it, get some injectors, and having my php retuned as things start needing to be replaced or I get extra money () That and a heavier duty clutch.

Looks clean - but that right rear door does look like a different hue than the rest of the truck. The tires are probably standard OEM size, but they look so small compared to that huge dually truck.

I am not in the market for such a truck, but would really give it a look if I were seeking a dually or a diesel. It'd probably fetch at least 10k here - probably 10.5k if it really ran like a champ and everything worked properly.

They are asking what the clean trade in value is so i'd say if it looks and runs good in person you're getting a good deal.
