what kinda miles and engine are in it? the v8's will occasionally spit out a spark plug, but it's not that common. i had a 97 supercab 4x4 and got rid of it at 170000+ km's with no major probs. i also drive a 99 150 2wh drive at work with 260000 km's on it. they are pretty good trucks with the proper maintenance. Enjoy the truck.

ok as long as it aint the 97-98 4.2L...they had gasket issues which led to hydrolocked motors. 4.6L are pretty solid.


Whaddya mean I dont pay my bills?? Whydya think I'm broke!!
