not try'n to be an a-hole, but Love how everyone ASSUMES..
let me play the other side, why you sell the truck? was it because you knew of an issue??? remember I'm just ASSUMING.. like everyone else here..
you don't have to rpm an engine to have a rod let go.. a nice shift from 1 to 2 under load will do it at 3000 rpm..
before everyone tells the o/p to not worry or CARE about it.. I think seeing what happened would be the 1st order of business..
and unless your bill of sale says sold as it, where is.. and you don't live in a state that has limits on that.. good luck..
I'd find out what happened in the engine before ASSUMING..
would it be any different if a 43y/o bought it and the rod let go..
or you just gonna ASSUME a 19 y/o will be the only driver that MIGHT beat it..
