Northeast regular Cab 7.3

Hi everyone,

This is my first post here and I apologize if it is in the wrong forum. I am looking for any good sources for a regular cab 7.3 in the Northeast/New England area. I keep my eyes on craigslist and auto trader, but for the most part see only extended cabs, I have nothing against them, I just really prefer a regular cab.

If anyone has any leads or advice i would greatly appreciate it.

Thank you,

Bobby

All you could find is extended cabs!! I looked high and low for about 8 months for an extended cab 7.3 and didnt find the right one. I ended up with my single cab. I like the look but buying a 7.3 I planned on keeping the truck for a long time, and a single cab might get old after a few years. Its not too bad though, just put a tool box in it or a tonneau if you like that look. I would suggest getting a 6 speed truck unless you plan on leaving it stock. Dont think twice about buying an XL work truck, there are many different conversions you can do to make it look like a million bucks. Good luck with finding the right one, youll love the 7.3

Thanks Josh, that truck is gorgeous by the way. What makes the manual tranny a better bet than the automatic?

the zf6 is a tank of a tranny and way more reliable than a 4R100.

That, and the ability to control how hard your shifts are. When you are stock, it shifts like a school bus, when you put a chip in the truck it gives you harder shifts. Your resale value I think would also be higher.
