I found an 05 king ranch today with 136,000 miles. The no.2 piston is scored but I can get it for under 10,000 I think. The body is in great condition(white/tan) and my friend will rebuild the motor with studs, egr delete and injectors for 5k. Would make a great farm truck I think. Thoughts? Deal or not?

I would buy it at the very least you could fix it and flip it... If your friend is going to do all that work I would rather give a buddy money to fix it than someone you don't know...

Well typically his buddy won't be halfway accross the country... But usually if a friend does the work than he will stand by it (I know that is not always the case)

I was torn with my latest repair. My good friend did the work with the parts I supplied him, so when the gaskets failed, I ate it, didnt even mention it to him, because its not his problem. now if I had bought this engine and it had a stated warranty, you bet your but I would have them fix it.

I agree with this, but I would buy the truck, pull an OASIS report on it to check other history first.. That trucks books for $20k-$24k,.

I think it has potential also but for a Farm truck???
I am no farmer so I may be clueless but it seems like a nice truck to run Fields in ??

If the truck has a motor that needs rebuilt it is only worth about $8k tops. I wouldn't buy it for a farm truck unless I could get it for $5k. $10 is way too high.
