Hi all,

I read a couple of posts awhile back, which stated that the "early" 2004 F-250 (diesel only?) trucks had a serious problem, and to only buy "late" 2004 trucks, or newer. I've found a 2004 Lariat diesel online that looks good, and I have the VIN. Is there anyway to tell when it was built, other than looking at stickers on the vehicle? The dealer is in another state, and doesn't have a toll-free number.

Thanks for any info!
