I have heard, not sure if it is true or not but if you maintain those trucks and treat them well they can last over 600,000. I currently am sitting at like 73,7**on the transmission. Engine is exactly 1,299.9 though

If you can snag a deal from a cash-strapped construction company on an '06 550 6.0L, I think you're better off with that. Otherwise, look for 0% financing so it costs you nothing to pay over time in case next year is rough.

Ya most likely i'd buy outright. prolly won't go as big as a 550 but if but definitly a 350 at least.
