I had the same concern when I purchased my van. Thought I was doing so well when the salesman told me it's never been offroad. Lucky he was a lair. I had it for nearly a year, when this great forum told me of my pending problem. The very next weekend, myself and my Brother In Law took a drive down Robert Broom Drive and selected 4L.

Good luck getting your truck sorted. Will be watching to see what the outcome is.
This weekend im supposed to be cruising to Gabarone.

So yeah. counting my lucky stars it happened this side of the world
