to the ORG. Glow plug relays, glow plugs, Cam positioning sensors, occasional HPOP o ring leak. Those are some of the most common things. All pretty easy to fix. The 7.3 is a great motor inside a great truck. I hope you find what you are looking for, and welcome to the dark side

to the site!

The 7.3 is a very reliable motor. There's a great thread here to check out: What to look for when buying a USED 99-03 PSD

You might also consider paying the small amount to become a premium member. With it, you can submit the VIN of any truck you're looking back, and the site leaders will run it. You'll get back any recalls or other work done at the dealer.

to the org! ...And what's this talk about this place being compared to the ghetto??? Maybe it's the other way around and this is a black tie event and you're wearing a speedo! No, on second thought, there's no way this could even be remotely compared to a black tie event... Especially with Natty light on certain people's brains... (Stump/Ricky)

You'll find that nobody's going to give you any serious crap about being a Dodge guy. Looking back at the posts, you got a link to a great buying guide that identifies what to look for when buying a used PSD, Logan identified some of the potential issues. Can you be more specific as to what you're looking for?
