Questions about purchasing a 01' 7.3

Hey everyone long time lurker, but first time poster.....

I was surfing on craigslist today and found this near my house. Please take a look and tell me if this seems like a good deal or something to run away from. He said it has 148,000 highway miles on it, and the lift was put on when he bought it at 110,000 miles. From the pictures it looks like a long bed. Is there anything I should be worried about since it has the 42's on it? I would most likely be taking it back to stock height and tire size since it would become my daily driver. I just want the 7.3 for reliability and possibly running WVO/Biodiesel in it. Thanks in advance guys.

Hi there and Welcome to the .org!!! Glad to have you here and thanks for posting up


As far as that truck, it seems a tad high for an 01 with that many miles. My 01 F250 2wd Lariat crew cab books at $16 loan value with only 95K miles... He is likely trying to recoop some cost of the trans upgrades and lift/tires. I would try to talk him down some, but it is a nice looking truck and it does look like a long bed


Might also try this thread for some things to look for

I looked up on KBB and the list for the private party value was 15,500. I offered to trade him my 02' Ranger plus some cash. Aside from the price is the mileage high or are there still a number of reliable years from it? If I go through with it I might offer 16,000. He said he is open to negotiations.

It looks to me guys that he wants a crew cab instead of the extended cab -- he stipulates he wants 4 door... maybe that is the reason he's getting rid of his current truck.

that truck shoudl have lots of life left is it was maintained... and 7.3's are fairly bulletproof and can take a beating..

I would'nt go much higher than 16K because you definately won't be able to get a loan for much more than that... just my
