looks like the one from eBay about a month ago from Tenessee, if i'm not mistaken. caught my eye for sure. i ended up going about double the $'s for 1/3 the miles. probably bought the one that will go to 500k miles with no issues, and i'll be the one that has to put 10k into mine just to make it to 300k.

Actually, the EGR has been successfully thwarted by myself and several others using info provided by KarTek in this link. Or, just get it chipped and ask for the EGR delete option...

Your headlights look cloudy and dull like mine used to after 10 years. I bought a headlight sanding/ lens polish kit at NAPA a few months ago. 60 minutes with a cordless drill (used 2 batteries) the lenses look new. Also, significantly more light from the headlights now.

All the better to see the deer at night.

Previously loved
