thinking of 03 7.3??

Hey guys, new here. Have been a duramax person but just sold the 06 and thinking about a ford but dont want any of the newer ones. What would you guys think of this truck, new to fords and know very little. Thanks!

It is a 03 ccsb lariat with 270 000KM(167 000 Miles)

last of the 7.3L, crew cab, runs good, bigger injectors, adrenaline oil pump, sinister regulated fuel system, 4" MBRP exhaust, AFE intake, edge attitude chip, 2" leveling kit, air bags, 35" tires on 17" rims and new stock size tires on the stock rims. Pulls very good and has more than enough power. Open to offers and trades, let me know what you have. Text call or email, can deliver or meet you half way asking 15 000 obo

Apparently the front end has been rebuilt within the last 15 000km.

What would your guys's thoughts be? Thanks

Sounds pretty cool. I wonder if the tranny has been done yet.
These trucks need a beefed up tranny to handle the extra power.

PIS 230/80's, Van Turbo with EBPV, BD Billet Wheel
Lots of money spent at RiffRaff
Dual SD fuel pumps, in tank mods, CNC Fab bowl retain kit. SDK Tunes. Isspro.
Still pretty slow, just less slow now.

Ah suppose it could, but I wouldn't think so unless the owner was reckless. I personally stay away from anything that someone has already hot rodded if I can. That's because I know how I drive things I have hot rodded...

With a rig like that, knowing it did a bunch of towing and has bigger injectors, etc I would have it looked over/compression test, etc before dropping that kind of money on it. And the transmission is a valid issue too.

Good luck!!
