Thanks, Dean , Dale , that pretty well sums it in a few words , yes , he uses it like a genuine farm truck , it is packed from the front of the box to the tailgate , mostly tools and lubricants for his farm equipment , and he doesn't mind spending the money on it if it needs maintenance - that's probably how it got to over 400,00 kms and still runs like a Swiss watch , but I think what made him stand back and take a second look was the number of complaints he has seen with the boss's trucks , there are several , which have the Duramax engine , which he also drives - Dean would probably understand , he lives in a rural area and if the truck doesn't start or if it has a serious failure he is on his own , it is also his daily driver , he doesn't own a car - it isn't so much the cost of repair , as he says , as it is the idea that when he needs it , it might not run , and towtrucks are expensive where he is and they are not too crazy about picking up a heavily loaded pickup - I kind of bragged up our site - [iATN] - and told him that if you guys didn't know , then the information is not available , and he was willing to run with that - Sorry to go on so long about it guys , I just needed to get other opinions on this question - I'll advise him to stay with something with a gas engine , he will likely be good with at - Thanks again , guys , have a good day -
