Hello everyone

Hey, just ran across this website and really liked what I seen. I've been looking at some PSDs, thinking about using one as a work truck to pull horse trailers to Kentucky, Tennesse, Iowa, etc. I'm currently using my 89 Mustang GT as my DD and I'd really like tp keep it but I really prefer the 99-03 7.3s, I'm currently looking at a 2000 2wd Crewcab w/ 274k miles for $6,995. I know when Ford first released that new body style in 99 that they had some problems with the transmissions but I'm not sure if they got them worked out by 00'. Anyway, any input from you guys on what to look for on these trucks would be greatly appreciated. Thanks, Paul
