    Guess they don't design parts to last anymore. Or they lost their shirts on offering warranty that long.

    Does it? I wonder if they stopped doing that, 160k warranty is only offered on the 3.0L duramax now according to their website.

    Make me an offer I can't refuse? Haven't looked into how much they are worth. PM me if you want.
