I take really good care of it and do all of my maintenance on time and i dont really tow that much or beat the crap out of it.

Do you think you could drive the 2002 lb7 another 150 to 200k without dumping more $$ in it, im sure the 6.0 will need $$ as well, pretty big decision. Glad i dont have to make it
