Ok, yall are proly tired of seein these threads from me BUT...

Another trade question.

This is mine: Siggy (i just looked everywhere and couldnt find the down arrow, then I realized it was "v") vvvvv

Theres: Obs 1995 f350 crew cab long bed dually, powerstroke (obviously), class IV hitch, power everything, gooseneck, camper shell, 2wd. "conversion package"? ? wood trim. Really nice. bad is it needs new front tires, play in drivers door hinge, and small rust spot on the fender. has 256k miles (but mine has 383k )

Ok, this seems fair, but are there any major problems with obs powerstrokes? I guess im just so gun shy on these trades because mine has been SOOOOO reliable and I'm just worried I'll get a bad one, but really, how many bad 7.3's are there? I guess if I just had more experience (im 20 ) Id be a little more confident.

This was a farm truck used to pull a horse trailer, being as the obs's arnt intercooled does that means these are really hard miles? I'd just be using this as my dd and hauler maybe 3 times a month... the f250 doesnt quite cut it stability wise....

Thanks for the help and edjumacation
