Truck Values

Hi there guys,

I have been thinking about selling my truck. We all know about the great 7.3 reputation has the rest of the world figured this out? I was looking at other comparable trucks for sale online and noticed how high the value is. I talked to a dealership and he told me he can't keep up with the demand. Says when he gets a 7.3 it gets sold instantly. He suspects its related to great MPG, reliability, lack of emission controls to drive people crazy and cause poor fuel economy and low cost of maintenance.

Has anyone else noticed the truck value on the upside?

Now alot of 7.3s sell for more than newer 6.0s even. I know the place I got my truck told me that if they have a 6.0 and a 7.3 with the same mileage the 7.3 will usually sell for about 5k more

Sold 2001 f250 ccsb 4x4 400/400, dual terminators, swamps 80mm bfh, headers, bts and all the usual supporting mods. 715hp fuel only.

06 f250 ccsb king ranch

I believe it...because the 7.3 now costs more than when I bought mine 4 years ago. I'm selling my 7.3 cause I bought a 6.0 lol yes I know...the dark side

It must be catching on.
When i was looking for one i stopped in a so so car lot that had one put front and center.
It was beat on! Dents and dings all over. Hitch had been cut off with torches, mirrors and tail lens broke.
The tailpipe was kinked most of the way shut. So, i asked how much. The guy arrogantly said 15k!
Well i asked about all the stuff that was wrong and his reply was...if you want a perfect truck, go to the dealership and spend 50k. I just about swung at that bastard! I couldnt tell ya the mileage because i never made it to the interior. It was an 01 sclb 4x4. Must be plating them in gold.
Now i know 15k was a typical asking price for a GOOD vehicle but with the abuse this thing was showing i wouldn't have paid 10k for it.
It was gone 2 weeks later. I can only assume someone bought it up!

My buttys go a 2011 king ranch 6.7. I drive it occasionally, but I like the 7.3 more. I've got a ccsbame as his 6.7 and i like mine more.

But his truck is in the shop at least once a month. Most of the time its because the transmission trys to skip 3rd. And when he has the truck in the shop he drives his '99 7.3 that has 300,000 miles on it.
