I'm also curious on the durability. I'm on the hunt for a 2009/2010 5.7 for under $10k. There are a few in the country but they have 150k+ miles. It's a crap shoot either way =)
I'm handy and can replace a transmission if needed. As long as the engine doesn't bomb out, I should be good.
A 2006-2008 LR3 can also be had for under $8K, so they are tempting. They look sweet with a 2.5" lift and 32" tires. But damn, those seem to have a lot of issues. You need to find one that the previous owner dumped a bunch of $$ into it already. I test drove a 2008 with 180k and the transmission was slamming into 2nd gear when flooring it and slipping into 3rd.
I have 245k on my 2011 F-250 6.2 (Gas) truck that I'm trying to sell right now. It drives like new, on the original drivetrain. Once it sells, it's Commander time!
