I agree with you entirely Dave. To say I don't understand it wasn't the best description from me. I accept everything as it comes with the truck, but it's the previous owner telling me he'd done this and that and then finding out that was a lie. The oil filters were estimated to be 10 years old, the diff oils were certainly not new. These were just some of the specifics that he told me he had changed just before the sale.

I guess my hang up with the mud on the brakes only comes from my experience in motorsport. Clean brakes work better...... :lol:

Not a nice thing to happen - to take someone at face value and find out they've been telling porkies. At least none of what has been found is a show stopper. Best to assume everything needs doing, at least you're sure it has been done. You've still got a good truck

Ah, okay - that is a little different - essentially outright lies in this instance! I would be similarly annoyed/disappointed (something similar has happened to me at least a couple of times too). But as Ivan said, if the base truck is good, then you have a platform to move forward. Hope the rest of the conversion work goes well for you, mate :-)

Do you know which model exactly of Koni dampers are you getting?

I'm not exactly sure of the model, but can find out for you when we pick up the truck in December.

That would be great, thank you.
