although the title does say new to diesel i do know a few things. I have been around a few 7.3l, 6.0l, and a 6.4l. BUT, i have never owned one personally and am thinking of taking the jump to a diesel. I found one on the local craigslist and i would just like to see what everyone thinks. It is a 95 F250 7.3 auto. reg cab 4x4. 188k miles. it has a little rust in the usuall ford places but it is stickered and runs and drives. the owner said it sometimes needs a boost to start if it has been sitting for a couple days. He's asking 2600$ but would take probabley 2300$. I am in college and have a reliable driver. I guess I'm just wondering if this would be a decent truck for me? I have owned a 95 f350 but it had the 7.5l and a 5 speed. thanks guys. love the website!!!!
