Upgrade an XL to an XLT?
I'm new here, and basically I'm on the hunt for a new to me 95-97 powerstroke. Trying to find a 4x4, auto, ext cab, rust free, lower mileage and would prefer the options of an XLT model too. Well needless to say, my lucks not been great. It's either everything, but a NE rust bucket, great shape, but a MT or 2wd, or has more miles than all my past vehicles combined. Well I've found a few trucks recently that meet my intrests, especially one, older adult maintained since new with full records, only 112k, auto, 4x4, even including an almost brand new fisher II plow for $7k obo BUT it's an XL. For the value, I would suck it up and deal with it, but I was wondering, what's involved in upgrading and XL to an XLT? I would want the power windows, the 40/20/40 bench seat with big armrest and the other accommodations (except cruise, no big deal). Is this a hard job to upgrade too?
And on a side note, this will be my first powerstroke, I'm experienced with the 7.3 idi and look forward to the major upgrade. However when buying and looking these trucks over, what do I need to be watching out for and what are problem areas with these models? Upon my purchase, the truck will get a huge full tune up with everything so I can start my own new record log, but I'd love a good warning on things to beware of!
Thanks for the help guys, looking forward to adding pics of my own OBS soon!
