  7. Is there a difference in a 4x4 3.0 and a 2x4 3.0

    My daughters engine bit the big one a couple of days ago and I have been looking into either rebuilding or replacing the 3.0. I think I have come to the conclusion based on the thinness of my wallet that a recycled 3.0 is the way to go. The truck is a 4x4. I looked at my local auto recyclers and...
