    seems cheap to me if you can fix the head gasket yourself.

    The engine should be fine... Its the E4od tranny I'd be worried about, unless its rare and has the c-6. For $3500, I snatch it up though!

    Well with diesel at 4 1/2 a gallon it is kinda a easy to figure out why. Its not near as cool when you have to fill it up with fuel.

    Transfer cases were another source for potential headache. at $3500 that would be a good buy.
