Take it to a certified tech to have it looked over. It will be worth the expense. Check http://www.kbb.com for the value of it.

What are you planning to pull with it?

Hmm, maybe you should look into a good used 3500 dually. Huge towing and hauling capacity with that.

At least look up the towing capacities to make a smart decision.
