Impulse bought a 6.0 for 3k now what?

So I was on an auction site and saw I 6.0 and ended up winning it for 3,000 dollars! The problem is it's 1400 miles away, it runs and drives with 221000. Should I trust it? And what should I check for before i drive it home.

Pay to ship it not worth the flight and fuel you will spend money on it to possibly have a issue with it on the drive home.

1400 miles, I would have it shipped. You practically stole it, it might drive back, might not.

maybe a plan but
the car hauler/trailer needs to be a big one for a superduty and it's 7-8000 lbs
more than most can handle then if it has bigger tires the wheel wells can be an issue

true, i'd hesitate to put a superduty on a standard car hauler. much rather have a good flat bed gooser!
