Possiblities of getting an 04 limited with 22k

Hello,

Few questions- I currently have an early 99 f250 7.3 with 152k on it. Its lifted/wheels/guages/chip/exhaust,etc. Have never had any problems. My inlaws neighbor has an 04 excursion limited 4x4 with 22k or 24k. He bought it brand new. Never towed with only made some trips out of state. 6.0's make me nervous from what i read and my grandfather had an 04 f250 that ended up being a money pit around 100k

My questions- What would need to be done to the excursion to make sure i wont have any issues down the road? I thought egr delete/intake/exhaust/gauges/chip? It would be used to tow an enclosed race trailer during racing season here in ohio. Would also be my daily.

Thoughts? My buddy at a car dealer said he would give me 12k for my 99 f250.

Thanks
Mike

Sounds like a nice opportunity to own a great truck. I would highly recommend buying a Edge CTS Insight and test drive the Excursion. Have the CTS display Engine Oil Temperature, Engine Coolant Temperature, FICM Voltage. Take the Excursion out on the highway at (60-65MPH flat ground) and see if the differential between the EOT and the ECT exceeds 15*F. If so the engine oil cooler is plugging/plugged off. This would require you to start taking some of the steps listed in the Bullet Proofing threads. There are a couple of them in the General 6.0 section. You don't want to see the FICM below 48v, as this can have an adverse affect on the injectors. I my self just purchased an '03 Excursion. I have began my modification to "Bullet Proof" the truck. I will be doing everything but studs by the end of summer. I would rather just have it all taken care of, versus having it break down on my Fiancee`, as it is her daily driver. Hope this helps.

Cheers,

Brew

I have a 2005 with 197,000 miles. No major problems.
One FCIM - a couple EGR.

Ford paid for injectors.

Not used for heavy towing - just a 4 wheeler trailer.

Hypertech set mostly on stage two.
