Most durable Ford diesel?
I'm new to the forum as I just decided to get into a Ford diesel. Currently I have a 2000 F150 that is solid as a rock but just a bit to small to be pulling around a gooseneck camper. I'm not looking to break the bank with a new hot rod. I went onto Ford.com and priced my ultimate rig, $55,000. Yeah, I don't think so. I'm looking in the $25,000 range.
My question is, if a person was to go out and buy a used Ford diesel pickup with the following specs, which year/engine size would be the most durable and one you all would recommend?
In reading your website a bit, sounds like the 7.3 is the stud and years are 99-2002. Are there any other years/engines out there solid? Which ones should I stay away from?
Ford, F250, diesel, automatic
gooseneck for smaller camper 30ft
supercab with the 4 doors
solid body not prone to rusting (my 2000 has major issues there)
I'm looking to get something that will last forever that I can trust on long journeys when I need to take them and that has the power to pull the camper w/out stressing.
