    Did the 3rd Gen 360s have the intake plenum problem that the 2nd Gens had?

    My 2001 had 330k miles when I handed it up to Dad. It's wearing out, though, and in need of a rebuild or replacement. Not bad for a 20-year-old motor, I think. I never had problems with the actual motor. Transmission and rear end were another story.

    Yes they did. My '03 1500 5.9 did anyway and it only had something like 80,000 miles on it.

    Like I said, make a 5000+ pound barge try to handle like a car lol. But let's be honest, how much offroad time does that pavement queen see?

    It handles much better than it did with the stock 20's and 275/60's. It'll go through anything that I don't need a 4wheeler to go through. Did fine with the foot + of snow and ice we got a couple months ago. But I'm old enough to not purposely try to tear up stuff to try and be cool. I live on a dirt road, so it sees dirt or mud every time I drive it.
