I'm new to your Forum, and wanted to ask a couple of quick questions that searching didn't really yield answers to.
There is an '04 2wd Lariat Crew Cab, Long Bed, that has been sitting behind our shop for ohhhhh probably about 3-4years, I think I have seen it move once, maybe twice in that span of time, but not within the last 2 years (yeah i know that sounds like a complex word problem in some high school math class lol)
Anyways, we were thinking of making the owner an offer on the truck and getting it back on the road, what am I going to be up against? I believe the truck has around 100k miles on it, and needs a little love and attention. Now I know diesel, like gas goes pretty bad over a period of time, so I'm wondering what kind of work am I going to have in getting the fuel system back in order besides changing a fuel filter, possibly dropping the tank and cleaning it out.
Any other engine related issues to look at in a 6.0 that has sat for that long? How much could I be looking to spend? Or should I just steer clear of it? I have a pretty strong mechanical background and I'm not afraid to tear into it and get it back on the streets I just don't know much about powerstrokes and need your opinions, thoughts, concerns, etc, and that will help gauge what kind of offer we make, If any.
Thanks in advance guys! I look forward to learning!
