Bought this 2017 1500 Laramie this week with 170000 miles. Been looking for two weeks pretty hard and found one close to what I want three hours away. Everything seems to be working as it should so far. When I got there guy told me new motor 20000 miles ago.

If I'd been told ahead of time I wouldn't own this truck. What you all think about situations like this? I don't give a second look if new tranny or engine.

I like the truck now that I have it. It's not so much of a hard line stance as it is just a mental barrier that I stay away from. It is real easy to just skip over a truck while I'm scrolling through and look at another one. I had plenty of time. But thanks for your comments.

Now that I have it and moving forward it might be a very good choice. $19,500 for this truck was a very good buy for high mileage truck with newer engine. Hardly any rust underneath and very few dings or scratches. I added mud flaps and some accent lights for air dam. The more a type the more I'm loving it.

You talking about the chrome around center console? It can be annoying with the reflecting nature of chrome. My last truck I had to paint some of it, I was fed up.

Of course that is all true zrock but wouldn't you have wanted to know before you drive 3 hours to look at it. In hindsight I'm very glad it's got a newer engine and so far seems to be good but just wonder what else is there that I would want to know. 9am

Thanks Rutt. All input I learn something new. Is that both engines 5.7 and 6.4? The dealer guys said possible lifters or cam but they said they didn't know. What they did say it might have been easier to do new engine. It was done before they got it. This was a small independent used car dealer.
