My 7.3 love has grown. Thinking about buying a second PSD today. Advice Needed

Price is of course my biggest concern at this point. Truck details...

97 F350 7.3 4 door Long bed 222k Original black paint on gray interior Auto. trans.
Mild lift with wheels i dont like that much and some tire wear.
Beds in good shape.
Mods are gauges and exhaust.
Does not have a hitch. Not yet at least
Aftermarket rear bumper.
No door sag.

Solid condition overall. Minimal rust.

Asking 7k. Its 100 mile away from me but i dont mind a little drive.

Whats a good deal for a truck like this??????

Make sure there is no rust, that is a deal breaker for me, and no hitch? I didn't know you could get these without one, at least you know it barely ever pulled anything

The rad supports are the 1st things to go on there trucks. They rot right out and they are NO LONGER AVAILABLE(ford or aftermarket) . Just something to keep in the back of your mind.

Also. the rest of the body. bed wheels wells to fix Correctly are Expensive.

Another rust issue is the oil pan. The engine needs to come out to replace it, another expensive repair

As others have said rust is the biggest issue. Other than that if everything else checks out I would say its a good price...
