to trade or not ?

Have a 00 Ex with some mods and such 183k on the clock and have done alot of work to it making it a good reliable DD. Really miss my old truck 01 CC 350 4x4 lifted , and have a chance to get a 99 for an even swap. Truck has 10" lift 37's 4.11's ,fender flares ,cowl hood,6.0 fuel pump,6.0 intercooler,new boots,rebuilt 01 turbo with ww, 4"straight pipe,CAI,6.0 tranny cooler with a 2nd cooler added,upgraded injectors,fresh tranny with hard parts kevlar clutches and billet torque conv, upgraded headlights tails and clearance markers,new bearings front and rear and ball joints last year , glow plugs, valve cover gaskets and no oil leaks......the bad ---344k claims uses no oil and runs and drives strong.Have not looked at it in person yet. Dont mind doing a master rebuild kit and tearing it apart in the next year , good idea or just a headache waiting to happen ?

Sold 01 350 6" on 37's and mild mods, 00 X 4" on 35's, 02 f350 4" 35's molded from fan to drive shaft, ridin the 03 with nose conversion with 125k and counting upwards slowly.
Never had CNC on any of it, never will.
Take 3/4 of the info and recommendations on here with a grain of salt

If you're gonna trade, then the glovebox should come with a few $100 bills in it... Your EX is worth several thousand more than his truck with double the mileage.

The EX is worth way more. Aftermarket stuff makes trucks worth less actually and 344k miles on a lifted truck has gotta make those miles harder than normal. If you get some cash thrown your way make sure you first get an oil sample checked at blackstone.

Another thought of mine... how long has the truck been lifted and was the speedometer corrected for it? If not, that 344K is probably more like 400k when corrected for tire size.

bah-if you like the truck, trade. That is if you are doing it for enjoyment's sake. If you look at it from a financial standpoint, he is getting the better deal. However, the truck is worth whatever you are willing to pay for it. If you like the truck more than the ex, do it.
