ok lets hear the good price please. 180k isnt exactly low, but isnt high either. For instance my truck 99 Lariat F350 SuperCab 4x4 100k miles was 12k. Now tell us your dirtly little $ secret so we can give you solid advise.

Mod it out?.....explain mod it out please.

The early SD's have forged rods which helps them stay together when making big power.

There is nothing harder to get parts for in regards to the early and late trucks unless its direct upgraded turbo fitment you're looking for.

Early 99 is just as awesome as the others. They respond very well to mods. As far as the direct turbo replacement comment... Look at the d66 drop in replacement.

There are differences. Do a search for early 99, there are many threads discussing the differences.

All the mods you listed will work great on a early build.
