    Avoid dt 12 transmission. It very expensive to fix and maintain...

    OK is the drive axle in the front or behind the axle that is not driven by driveshaft? The way to buy a used truck is to find a Dino that you can drive it to and have it ck. out while they run it on the truck sized Dino. they will give you a print/out of wear and have them give you a print/out of ECM, if it pass. then have them do a DOT insp. and make note of anything than needs fixed, then you can make them a offer, you would not think that all the ck. eng. lights turn on as its being run on Dino but it happens to drivers that do not ck. out trucks before they buy a used truck on its 1st load hauled!!
