Do you have any more pictures of the underside of the truck? I clicked the link to see the additional pics but would love more that show any rust spots underneath. Thanks!

What engine does it have? please be specific make and model. Thanks
The title says 8.1L, so I'd assume it's an L18 8.1 liter (496 cu in) V-8 from General Motors. This was an evolution of big block v8 tech and an improvement from the 454ci of the 80s and 90s.

I'm sure the seller can opine on their experience with this motor, but they have a pretty good history and reputation of power and reliability from what I understand.

Yep ^^^ They are thirsty but indestructible. I doubt they are much more thirsty than a Ford 6.8/V10 though and probably more trouble free.

A quick Google search shows about 9-10 for an 8.1 in a rig such as this (not towing).

Good way to describe it - drove it throughout the Americas, over 16,000' a few times, all sorts of terrain and it's still purring. The only issue we've ever had with the drive train is occasional misfiring, solved through plugs/wires.
