    I'm planning on putting a raptor 100 on it when I get it and doing all the fluid changes.

    Sorry it took so long to get some more pics up but I finally picked it up a couple weeks ago! Here are some pics of it after we got it cleaned up and then with the tow mirrors and the bed repainted.

    You aren't kidding about the block I have one that's cracked bought it that way didn't even know. Bastards hid the crack with some epoxy and then painted it started smelling antifreeze 2 weeks latter. The block cracks on the passenger side where it starts angling back towards the center. Mine cracked 14 inches I still use the truck but you always need to keep an eye on the coolant. Tried stitch welding and it failed 2 years later and those stop leak products only last a few months then clog up other things. The blocks with the defect are Brazilian made the good ones are Mexican. The problem is for every 1 that was made in Mexico 8 were made in Brazil. The 99s are effected and I believe I read the defect went all the way to 2002

    Good cause it kills the resale mine has half the miles you got and I will probably be letting her go for just 6500.

    I actually got them off ebay. Just make sure your get the support brackets with them otherwise you won't be able to see they will rattle so much. They are around $200 for the set and $15 for support brackets, or you can get some as a package with both mirrors and brackets. They look just like my oem mirrors on my 2500.
