I've never been a big believer in the whole synthetic oil bandwagon.. I used to use Castrol and valvoline but the secret to good engine life in my mind is regular oil services.. The engine on this one has the typical 4.6 clatter, so I will probably be replacing the short block with a 4.0 unit with all the 4.6 stuff swapped into it.. Truck only has 105,000 miles on it...

Why does it have that POS roof rack and not a factory rack or Hannibal?

Because the stickers are the most important thing on that truck...

The trucks originally had a hannibal rack on them and a hannibal tent..I will be locating all the original stuff and going back with that.. The research has already begun..... They also had the wolf style wheels, guy I bought it from said they were rusted, so he put these ones on..oh, it also came with a tepui tent, but that wasn't correct so I will probably be selling that to install the hannibal....

Yeah, but I know the past 2 owners of this truck... And I bought it from the registered owner... Unlike the guy who bought the camel from Joe Schmoe who had no right to sell it....
