If you're able to get that one, at least one thing you won't have to worry about is the blankety-blank Bosch VP44 injection pump the 98.5 thru 2001 24-valve models came with -- stay away from those !!! I just put the 4th pump on mine & it's only got about 140,000 miles on it! This time I got the good Freightliner pump ($2150) so I shouldn't have the same problems again, but those weren't available until fairly recently. The original computer part is what always fails & the upgraded Freightliner version is supposed to take care of that -- we'll see.
