    Hey guys,

    I'm willing to purchase this truck, it is 2001 Volvo VN 660, cummins ISX 500, 13 sp. 1.4M miles on it. Moose bumper. I'll be pulling a 53 tridem heated-van to Edmonton form Vancouver.

    Any good advices about what to check and where to look before I decide to buy it?

    So far all I know is the O/O truck, 380 000 miles on reconditioned engine, oil pressure is good, started nice, no smoke. Crowled under a truck, no leaks, drive-shafts and U-joints tight, very little loose on center differencial , but really very little. Might pull shims out and tighten bearings on pinion.

    Truck looks clean, well maintained,but I will go for test drive soon, so any advice is helpful.

    Got a truck, runs good so far, Haven`t tried loaded yet.

    Found two switches on the dash, says AUX Swith, but a have no idea what they are for. And then one with question mark on it. Have no manual so if anybody could explain it to me. Thanks.
