Hello from Sandpoint, I'D
I purchased a power ram 50 4x4 2.6l Limited slip last year and I love my truck so much it has never stranded me even in deep snow, it also eats mud for breakfast in two wheel drive. I wouldn't trade this truck FOR ANYTHING, not even a Ford r a raptor.
Welcome to the forum
You have a nice truck there. Extended cab and all!!! Where not to far from you down in Spokane and we drive a 2WD 86 MM all winter. Little light in the bed with BF Goodrich T/As, but a few sand bags fixes that.
Be sure to not overheat your 2.6 and change oil religiously. Keep up with maintenance and your truck could easily last for 200k to 400k miles.
The head has blow by at the valve seats and the head is milled near low spec so the timing chain has slack even though it's a new timing kit so I'm going to do a head swap.
