    Hey guys, I just picked up a 2002 2500hd extended cab 8.1 Allison 4x4. 148,000 miles. we got a deal we couldn't pass up. exterior is almost flawless, interior is just as nice. bought it to pull my 5th wheel, do some light house work and a little hunting. Truck came from Arizona, now resides in Kentucky. Used to have a 12v pump someone mounted to the top of the engine pushing the a/c, not sure what that was for and got a horrible noise coming from the t case when in 4 hi/lo. looked at the back of the case and its dryer than any vehicle I've been under, not ruling out pump rub, but was told by the seller that the chain was the issue. never been into a t case before, but it seems like there's no time like the present to lean. Low oil light came on today on the way home from work. Here's hoping it doesn't burn oil like it burns gas.

    Welcome to the family bud!

    How much did you end up stealing it for? I've always wanted to build an 8.1 for my truck.. but then again, i enjoy getting more than 10 mpg haha! Sounds like a sweet ride though, get some pictures of it up! What kinda plans do you have as far as modifications other than the 5th wheel?

    4x4 isn't really an area of expertise on my end, being the proud owner of a lowered truck, but there are PLENTY of people around here who will have some answers on it for you!

    Thanks 08_rado_rocker(good luck with the 240 build, ill have another one day). not many plans for modifying it. Bought it for 6k even. came with preinstalled flowmaster muffler, dual pipes, 1 muffler, half tool box, k&n filter, and brand new goodyear wrangler all terrains. really looking for the 5th wheel and my wife wants a lot of pink camo.
