They say that the new mileage is reflective of a new motor install. Uhhhh..

Oops, didn't read that. That makes more sense then. I was going to say, that is really cheap for the mileage, even if it wasn't a LE!

Buyer Beware. I almost bought this truck from the owner 4 weeks ago. I had cash ready to go, we agreed to a price(knowing that it had a new engine) and then I had the owner take it to the local North Texas Rovers to inspect it.....Well, the engine is not new. Previous owner had a receipt for 5-6k of work. Head gasket, rotors, some suspension stuff and some other things. They confirmed that it DID NOT have a new engine. Looks like he was able to sell the dealer that it did have a new engine.

Owner ended up trading it in to the jeep or volkswagon dealer. Said he was getting $23k or something which we know is not true. Also said he still owed $33-34k on it.

Truck had a couple of dings and dents. Someone tried to park the truck in a garage since you can see signs of the rack bent. I thought the truck drove a little sluggish. Check engine light was on. No rust. Very clean inside. Let me know if you all would like anymore info.

I am still looking.

Well, whether they claim a new engine or not, you would think they would have cleaned up the engine bay a little. That thing looks filthy!

Good info whitelandy33, I wasn't considering it myself, but I am sure others on the board will find this info useful!

Yes, its filthy. Its worse in person. Supposedly, the worked performed was done late last fall of 07. How a engine bay gets that dirty sitting in a garage with in a year in Texas....I have no idea.

Well, if it wasn't replaced, but just rebuilt, most shops won't clean parts before they reinstall them. They will clean gasket surfaces and that is it, but you would think that if someone was going to pass an engine off as new that they would at least have the common sense to have the thing steam cleaned first!
