I've got a 2005 140 I'm fixing up for around town , good deal $8,000 120,000 miles never in salt ,
So I saw a 2006 high top long wheel base lots of miles needs turbo? once again never saw salt south Florida truck , I'm going to buy it to make a RV out of it , owner says it needs a turbo , anywhere I can find a deal on one? or how much are they new? I'm getting the van cheap, long term project .

Florida could equal lots of rust.
Most of the time the turbo is fine, it's just a component down the line like the resonator or EGR or something that needs attention. I'd look at that stuff before shelling out thou$ands for a turbo.

I second the Florida rust. They don't rust don't like things up here in Wisconsin but they rust out nonetheless and in really weird places from the sea salt down there.

I wish I could find a deal like that here in Florida, I have a 2005 that has 560k on it and it runs like a champ but because it's a northern vehicle it's going to fall apart as the rust is winning.

Where are you in Florida if close I might be able to help you figure it out.

Well the guy can't find the title ? He bought six of them at auction , has two left,
The guy picks up cars to go to auction , then delivers car from the dealer auction , that is how he came upon these vans.
Coalminer If I can get this deal done, I'll ask him about the last one, I did not look at it?
