Would you buy this truck?
Hello all newbee to sight and looking for advice.
Found a 2003 F350 Supercab XLT Dually 7.3 powerstroke 6sp maunal with 183000 miles. Really need a pick up to haul all the stuff we take camping and other problems not having a bed presents with the Excursion we have now.
Would you buy this truck? it appears to be clean, needs tires no major dents other than some light hail on the hood, has a goose neck back in the box at front of the is bent toward the cab, but not touching it, tail, gate inner plate is pretty banged up. But the interior is clean,run great drives good, the body is straight and shiny paint, dry underneath. 14,000 bank repo
How long will this truck last at this mileage not knowing how it was taken care of? Any problems I should specificly look for. Dealer selling it is offering a 12mo/12,000 mile warranty on motor, tranny and drivetrain,
Really love this truck!!! miles make me a little dubious.
I saw the truck before it was detailed the bed was about half full of hay and the interior was dusty but not really trashed out. The motor and underside were clean and dry.
Carfax shows 2 owners , the first from new till 2008 truck with good maintenance at the Ford dealer here till then. The 2nd being till repo this May.
Truck would not be a daily driver but a tow vehicle for 9000 lb RV and General truck type useage.I am concerned about the cost of repair if it craps out.
Its really hard to find a 7.3 around here in any type of decent condition. Usually the ones I have found have been run to death,(300,000+mi) beat to crap(if they still have the dually fenders in one piece it's a miracle) and priced thru the roof.
I cant afford to spend much more than the 14,000 they want for this one to.
The dealer agreed to put new tires on it and have a front end alignment done as well as full service at the Ford store LOF, fuel filter, air filter
Truck market here is rough, but I just dont know what to think about this one.
any thought would be great. Thanks
