ramfam is on a distinguished road

Well I have that same eng in a 2001 sterling 24 ft. Box truck that rutely hauls 30,000 gvw. Its a power house and has 365,000 km on it. The main issue with it was fuel lift pump and its a well known fault of cummins. That's the first thing I would be prepared to replace if it wasn't done. Also ball joints go out cause the orig are nonservicable. And 4x4 has issues with vacc servo to lock in axl but the rest is basic. Also watch u joints if you get to aggressive they might pop. But all and all I would have one in a heart beat.
