Help me decide

I posted this in the general forum, but no responses, so i figured I would try here.

OK, guys. I have been out of the game for awhile, so I have decided to get another diesel. Due to what I can afford, I decided to get a 7.3 and have narrowed it down to 2 different trucks. This is where I need your help deciding.

Truck #1 - 2001 F250 Supercab 4x4 213000 miles, guages, Banks add-on kit, exhaust and intercooler- turbo- and trans- module, but no programmer. $9500

Truck #2 - 2002 F250 Supercab 4x4 270000 miles, bone stock. $7500

Number 1 I could throw in a programmer and be done, but its 2k more, but I keep looking at the banks add on stuff. Number 2, save some money and throw it in the programmer exhaust and maybe lift and tires?

i would go with option 2.... just because option 1 doesnt have a programmer now doesnt mean it didnt have one before....

you could do exhaust, intake, and chip for about 1k....

I'm just basing it on my recent experience. I just bought my truck. I'm in CA...I figured we'd have the highest prices, as it is with most things.

It is all about supply and demand. I found that you could often find 6.0s for less than a nice 7.3l. P

I'd probably go for the stock one, if overall condition between the two is otherwise equal.

Option 2 you don't know if the other one had a programming. I'm gonna guess it did. Also where I am. (Western new york) those are amazing prices. For $7500 all you can find are mid 90s rotted cummins even for $9500 your buying a rust bucket i lucked out and bought mind down south $9000 with shippings for a 01 f350 dually 201000 lariat in very good condition this truck would sepl up here for $14000 all day
