Potential problems with the 4.6/5.4 (popped plugs, rusted exhaust manifold) are more expensive than the 4.8/5.3. The GM brake lines will need converted to stainless or cunifer or at least re-routed asap. Also the GM frame will be rusted - if not rusty it's been painted or coated and that could be a good thing or a cover up. I'd also consider a dodge 5.7 if '02 or newer. They hold up pretty well and don't cost much to keep going. Watch for rust over the rear fenders but the frames had a decent paint job as opposed to GM's 1 coat of wax.
