Need some advice

I currently have an 01 F-250 7.3L PSD with 6 spd manual tranny it is a super cab with the half rear doors. It is great for towing but the cab is a little small in the rear for the kids. I found another 01 F250 7.3L PSD with automatic tranny and it is a crew cab with full rear doors awesome looking rig but I am worried about the transmission because my truck rarely leaves the yard without a trailer on they range from a 8,000 loaded flatbed to a 30' travel trailer 6,500lbs. I don't plan doing any mods beside D.I.Y intake and a muffler delete. Does anyone know which auto tranny they put in the 01's and if it will hold up to those kind of loads on a regular basis. The truck I currently own has 233,000 miles and the one I want to buy only has 60,000. They are asking $23,000 is that to much for a lariat pkg long box. Thanks for your input.

As far as the tranny goes - they will usually hold up well as long as you don't overheat them.

And for the price, that seems a bit much for that year even with those miles. Mine had 92K in March and got it for $16K. I'd say somewhere in the $20K range would be good..

make sure you get an oasis report and see what may have been done to the truck so far!

What do you pull for trailers and have you ever had to stop to let it cool down?
