What to expect out of a 7.3 that I hope to have soon
Well if all goes well I will be getting a 2002 F250 CCSB, Lariat, 4X4 with the 7.3 in the next week or so. The truck has 163,000 miles on it but has alot of goodies installed such as 6" or 8" lift, 20" Moto Metal wheels, 40" Mickey Thompson Baja ATZ's, CAI, Edge programmer, extra trans cooler with deep aluminum transmission pan as well as a shift kit for the transmission.
This truck looks awesome and I'm super excited about getting it but it is coming from a dealership so I don't know the previous owner and don't know how the truck was taken care of. What kinda things should I expect to have to replace in the near future with this kinda mileage on the truck.
Also it has the original transmission which kinda scares me but I'm hoping with the shift kit, the deep aluminum pan and the extra trans cooler will make the transmission last, Am I wrong in thinking this. This will be my first diesel and I a little concerned that I will get the truck and a few months later things will start going wrong and from what I understand repairing these trucks isn't cheap.
Any input will be greatly appreciated.
