Potential New Truck...
Alright guys Ive been looking around for a new truck. I want a 03 7.3. Im in no hurry and it hit me one day, I have a buddy who has one. It was a 03 with the 7.3. C/C LB 4x4. Lariat. Full power blah blah. Hes the original owner. Bought it new in 03. Truck has like 6X,XXX miles on it.
Heres the problem. The truck threw out its tranny. I dont know the exact reasoning of why or how but I know its gone. I also know for some reason or another its needs an ECU. Im not sure if that's related to the tranny. I do know the truck is bone stock. He didnt do any mods. Because it isn't drivable, it has sat for the last year or so. I know he starts it up and lets it run so it doesn't ruin anything. It has very little rust.
So my questions for you guys:
-How much is the truck worth as-is state. Not the KBB but what would you guys pay for it or at least think is a reasonable price?
-What would I be looking at for a tranny and ECU for it?
-Even though he starts it, because it has been sitting should I be looking for anything that would have been affected on it?
Sorry about all the questions. Ive owned OBS up to this point and really just don't know much about SD. Not even how well the hold their value.
