I bet he has never had to replace a thing on it either right?

You're right, ball joints don't wear out, neither do tie rods, alternators, starters, transmissions, ujoints etc. Now add some more torque, more weight, and whats going to happen? In general those parts would wear out faster, adding to the cost of owning and operating the truck with the heavier motor......
