Question What To Expect?

Like a dummy I sold my 2002 F-250 7.3 dream truck 4 years ago..now I,m looking into trying to get another....prices for a used now are the same amount as what I sold mine for with only 85k. Anyway since the truck will have 150-200k miles on her what should I expect to pay to have a 7.3 rebuilt or replace when she does quit running? I read plenty about them lasting 300 to 600k miles but nothing about someone having to rebuild or replace a PSD

Thank you for your information....Now I have to decide Excursion 7.3 4x4(family)
or the heck with them and get me a CrewCab 4x4 (and they can ride or not!)
I'd rather put a camper on the back every now and then vs pull one around.

Well a ball park rebuild is around 5400 last I check. *today* If you keep up with oil changes and all no rebuild will be necessary.

2000 F-250 216k- smoke much?

If you buy a good truck you wont have to worry much about it... find a truck you like look at the turbo and check for dusting, read the post about buying one that are on the forum and get an oil analysis if possible Blackstone Labs
