Looking at a '99 PSD crew cab.. Any tips?

Hey all,
I am still searching for the right truck and this Sunday I will be checking out a '99 PSD crew cab, SB, 2wd, AT, XLT..
It is owned by an elderly couple and used to pull their 5th wheel camper. A total of 76K on the ODO.
Are there any hot points to check on the truck, or anything service wise(besides normal service) that I should make sure of?

It fits my bill just right aside from the cloth upholstery, but that can be changed.
I've read the "what to look for thread", but just want to make sure there isn't anything else a bit more up to date.

Thank you in advance!

The best advice I can give you is get your premium membership and have an oasis run on the truck. The oasis will show any warrenty work on the truck. It may or may not show any problems.

Look at the air box. Make sure it does not say powerstroke across the top. Other then that, there good trucks!

Sure, the early 99's had a air box that leaked bad... So bad that Ford had a TSB on it to replace them. Most made it but a few never got the air box swapped out...

Mine never got changed before I got it, but I was unaware of the problem until after I got it. The turbo fins were still sharp, so I think that I am Ok. I changed to the 6637 as soon as I could. 22,000 miles later, I am still tickled.

No trees were harmed in the sending of this message, however, a large number of electrons were terribly inconvenienced.

Ask about the Cam position sensor...ubber common failure on the 7.3. Other than that the 7.3 is a great motor, and that is coming from a guy who drives a CR Cummins!

So check service records for CSP replacement, Check air box for PS script...
Wow... I guess these are solids trucks!

Anyone with a 2wd, Can you Please comment on alignment issues, tire wear? I Know Ford I beams are notorious for wearing the front tires. Does the Superduty ractify that, or is this still an issue?
