    If it has mice or rats, then you have to rip all of it apart and clean it right, the ozonator won’t kill the all the bacteria that mice crap carries. You can get really sick from it.

    The 3.90’s are a surprise. Usually spec’d with 3.55, or 3.36

    Yeah likely a winter project. Was thinking just to get it rolling.

    Not sure but if it's like Ontario, speed limited to 64mph. Plus lots of hills to climb there and here so might be a good set up.

    It’ll definitely pull a hill better than any other Truck out there. A friend of mine had the same set up. One with 3.55, last one with 3.36. The engine had so much torque, it pulled a hill just as well as the one with 3.55’s. The 3.90’s should make it a blast to drive.

    I'd be pulling light loads so I'd think it would have all kinds for the work I do

    Them rats in Tejas are big enough to drag a XXL t-shirt up into a dash and build a nest on top of the defrostor box in a ‘71 359. The black steel wool looking mess was the petrified remains of the perp. Still didn’t change it’s value though.

    This was last Jan. I haven’t died from a plague yet. Lol!

    If it is a 550 6NZ it is the motor that everyone wants. A heavy duty truck junkyard in my area, sells 6NZ'S to a guy that rebuilds them for $11k running or not.
     
    Rideandrepair and kah68 Thank this.
