Thinking of buying. Need the expert input.
Well, my wife wants to get a camper and I have 4 kids. So, all the campers that my expedition can pull are too small for the family. Now here I am on a quest for a truck that can handle a 5th wheel. I came across an 04 King cab Lariat 4WD dually. It's probably more truck than I'm looking for but the price aint bad. The truck is a repo with 210,000 miles and a 6.0L engine. I know of all the problems ford had with this engine around this year. I'll run a carfax later but I'm kind of thinking that with that kind of mileage and the engine is still running strong, those issues may have been resolved. The looks of it really hooked me. It's a beautiful truck.
I just want to hear from some experts and others who have had experience with this. If all else fails, I found a backup. It's a 2000 2WD with the 7.3. Looks pretty nice but it's not red.
