got my man card back

Picked up a new to me 2004 King Ranch last night, clean oasis and not a scratch even in the bed. Garaged and barely driven at 36K miles. I traded a 2004 4 years ago that had more miles on it then this one...

Looks like all the guy ever did was wash it!

I'm a little nervous about it not being run hard but I'll take care of that and see what happens...After my emissions test I'm going to tackle the EGR and will just delete and reinstall for testing...make sense? 1st order of business is a coolant filter and getting the oil cooler checked out.

First off sounds nice If your going to mod it a lot then i'd look into some ARP headstuds.

probably won't put a tune on it for a while, just make it reliable for now and gradually move to tunes etc as I gain confidence. Last thing I want to do to this lazy dog it shake it up a bit. Studs are in the future but hopefully when I'm ready and not the truck.

$26K down from the $51K original 2004 sticker...cost him about $725 per mile in depreciation.

Just crazy IMO to spend that much on a car and let it sit. Hopefully I got the better end of it but only time will tell. Even if I have to spend $5K building it out with studs and other upgrades I think I win with having a truck with that low of milage.
