Well, what are YOU looking for?
A truck to look good ,use as a truck,or cool ride,tow things?
Or do you like the ex. for the look,room,maybe more power(don't know what engine)
How about both for the best of both worlds?
Tell us what you're looking for

Ok-you own the truck , but are looking at an Ex.?
First off - get what you want-not what everyone else wants for you
Hold on---is there a girl involved and you aren't telling us??
Come on--tell us why you ask this---we won't tell her!
Don't feel bad--I can't keep my wife out of my truck either!
Now tell us why you ask

the resale value really is my concern. if i decide to sell which is going to be harder to sell? i personally would prefer a truck. another thing is the ex has the 6.0 and has 200000 mi. the guy who owns bought 6 mo. ago to resell but has no idea if the studs are done or not. my truck has the 2000 model 7.3 with 233000 mi on it. i guess my question is which would sell better. thats why i was trying to get opinions on what the majority of other diesel drivers would go for....the ex does have a blue book value of 2500 more but that doesnt mean anything when someone is looking for something in paticular like that.

my wife doesnt drive large vehicles. she sticks to her sports cars.

7.3 hands down, regardless of vehicle. But trucks are cooler.

Just messin' with you bud But seriously-my wife won't leave mine alone and it drives me nuts! Use your old Dodge Omni and be happy!-Yes-Just kidding( But she still drives mine-gotta hide the keys!)
All joking aside-the 7.3 will bring way higher value than the rest-that's the only time tested one that everybody I know wants.
They aren't as strong as the others-but they don't die either
Remember--that engine was started in 1988---and went up to 2003 with upgrades,but everyone knows that who is looking for a long laster

i agee. the 7.3 should hold value better. if they were both 7.3 then id say the ex for value. i have a couple buddies with a 7.3 ex and they are getting offers for them all the time. their answer is usually a variant of 'over my dead body'.
