Should I buy?

Found a 95 f350 in my state. Crew cab longbed 4x4 with the 7.3 and an e4od. Looks to be in good condition. Blue in color and still has some gloss to it. He has a dp tuner, 3" downpipe, lifted 4 inches on 37 inch tires. Engine has 377k on it and trans is a Jasper reman with 10k on it. It's the only 4x4 cc lb I've seen for sale in almost a year. I was thinking of offering 5500 cash to his 7k Obo request. Figured I woukd refer to the gurus here on the org for info. Any thoughts are helpful. Thanks guys

Lots of miles but still has lots of miles left. If you have any mechanical skills i say go for it but you need to get it for less than 7. Id say if you get it for 6 and its in real good shape you did pretty well.

Just know that things are going to go wrong, it wont run like a top and be perfect all the time at 377k. Your looking into a engine rebuild after awhile most likely depending how its been treated. But that transmission will be perfect for you. Its basically a heavy duty stock rebuild.

Oh I'm highly mechanically inclined and know these engines inside outside and upside down. It's the rest of the truck I'm unfamiliar with. Especially the e4od. Will it live long with those 37s on there?

the jasper is a fairly good stock rebuild. Its not going to hold high horsepower or sled pulling but its good solid foundation for daily driving.

37s are about the equipotent of having 100 extra hp. Id say if you leave it fairly stock it will last just fine, just dont try do injectors and turbos or its going to not like it at all.

I was jut going to get a ts 6 pos chip, stacks, intake if it doesn't have one, and some interior work. I really want to do a manual trans swap or a cummins swap on it. Put the 7.3 in my other obs f250 gas job
