Never replaced the exhaust? Never had to have the transmission rebuilt, no new clutch? No headers replaced? No pan replaced?

Brakes have not needed done?

Does your state require emissions testing?
Truck has just shy of a quarter-million. Two sets of tires. One brake job (maintenance category, not repair; re-line only). Original clutch. The $500 was u-joints, a blower fan, and an ignition switch plus some misc. Oil changes at $120 are 15k/light duty or one year. Towing/heavy/high heat at 7500.

Truck has always been emissions-exempt.

Time is now the problem (with high heat). Age. Dry rot.
