I need help.

I am suffering from powerstroke withdrawl. I sold my truck a few months ago and bought an f150. I have been regreting it since i picked up this truck. Its a 2001 s-crew king ranch (nice truck), but it has some issues that i later found. It will eventually need head gaskets cause they are leaking oil into the valley, it randomly doesn't want to fire when you are cranking it, has lots of suspension lattles when cold, and gets horrible mileage. Oh and it came with no block heater so when i was ice fishing in -37 degree temps my truck wouldn't start. I have just about had it with this f150 and i am already looking for another diesel. I just needed to vent a little.

I am. I just can't figure out whether i want to try and sell this one outright or trade it in. They only want to give my 7-8 grand for the 150. I want a crew cab 7.3. They are also hard to find and are generally more expensive than a 6.0.

Honestly i just want a 250-350 crew XLT 4x4 with under 150k and hopefully not spend more than 17-18k. I want a clean one with no smoke inside and a good body. I don't need a lariat, but i would consider one. They just start to nick ya on insurance with the fancier pkgs. The ins on my KR 150 is the same as my 7.3 and the 150's a cheaper truck.

There are NO 7.3's up here. ANy of them that are around have well over 200k on em. I am not in a huge hurry, but i am looking. Heck i haven't even got the title from the state of MN on my 150 yet. They said i would get it in 2 weeks. Dang gov't workers are too slow. LOL.
