my buddy had one , had some mojor problems with it rolling at high speeds, the 6" lift and 35 probably didnt help , and they dont float in spring run off very good

biggest thing is the frame......

rear frame, cab mounts, floors, shock mounts are the norm to be rusted out, check for crank noise on cold start ups.. most have it but some are worse off...

rust is the main issue...[cheers]

To be a little more specific the frame right by the rear leaf spring mounts
