What did you think of it?

Mts678 I don't want to admit to this, but there's plenty of nights that I spent hours just reading post
I was just kinda looking for advice from people who have 6.4.

Ya, I love the look of the 08.
And what I've been reading, sounds like the 6.4 is a heck of an engine when it's taken care of

Never talked to the guy, just saw the ad and later saw the truck when I was in portage driving through to head up north. It looked clean from the outside though...wish I could tell you more...I wonder what he pulled with it to need airbags. That would be my concern...and if it was abused if it was a younger guy...but if the guy seems knowledgeable, honest and his reason for selling isn't BS, then if its what you want why not? If there are problems with it just see if he will drop the price and use that money to fix it...
