there ar two trucks i am looking at. please help. this will be my first diesel.
1) one truck is a 2001 cc f-350 with the 7.3L. it has a 12" lift kit with
181,xxx miles runs very good but has an oil leak from looks like the turbo pedestal. i heard it is a cheap fix. it has 40" tires, dual reservior shocks, dvd/cd player, extra set of 40" tires, stock tires, 2007 side mirrors w/turn signals, 2007 superduty tail gate, warn locking hubs. the truck is in overall good condition. $$14,500
2) the other truck is a stock 2001 cc f350 7.3L with 94,xxx miles. 35" tires, remote start and removable rear window. for $$14,500
i would eventually put a 12" suspension lift on it w/ 40's in the future which would cost around $7,000.
so would it be worth it to just get the truck that is already lifted to save me money? and should i really be worried about 180,xxx miles? or go with the stock truck with less miles, and spend that extra $7000 to put a lift on it. thanks.
