Understand the prices are high - you really think you can get a 60k mile 7.3 for 15-16k?

I bought my 2000 last year with only 49k for 18k, so yes you can find them for that low.

Yea those prices are insane. I basically stole mine from my buddy - 286k for $5000 Yes she was in need of some tender loving care but she's been a great truck so far.

The only way you will find a nice 7.3 equipped CC 4x4 Super Duty with very low mileage for 15-16k is if the seller doesn't know the premium the 7.3's demand. I was very lucky and bought the truck in my sig last year with 83k miles for only $15.5k...and that was only because it was at a very large new-car-dealer that took it in on trade and wanted to move it quick (It had only been posted online for sale for a few hours before I gave them a deposit). When I arrived to pick it up (after placing a deposit over the phone) there were two different guys offering the salesman more money than the asking price to try and buy the truck from under me. They had to move the truck around back while we finished the paperwork because more people kept showing up to look at it. Thank goodness I was dealing with an honest dealer who held it for me.

That being said the asking price on the truck in your link is high, but in Florida that same truck would definetely sell quickly for over $20k. It might not go for $26k like that seller is asking, but it would go for over $20k quickly.

2001 F-250 CC SB 4x4 Off-Road w/ 88k miles on the 7.3. 4" lift on 35" BFGs. All synthetic fluids (Amsoil & Schaeffer's)
