NO CDL in 03. Have to replace it with one with a nipple 99-00-01, or 04. Depends on what you will use it for.

jhmover is right. I was thinking the exact same thing, 2003=no cdl.

Tony is selling a 4.6L 99 DII with a new motor. Make him an offer he can't refuse.

Also, the early '03 D2's have oil pump issues. There's a TSB for it, but only for certain VIN's.

Thanks Gary, I spoke to Tony about it, it's a really nice truck and it comes with a one year warranty but it's a bit out of my range right now.

I think I'm just going to use the D1 for off roading and not as a DD for now and decide it's fate later, when it finally blows up!

My 98 has 130 and runs very strongly but there are some wierd noises (metalic) coming from the engine compartment. Someone suggested that it could be the speedo cable (?)
