Wanted: Advice for a novice to 7.3L powerstroke
I am a (very) new member and I am looking into buying a 7.3L F250. Currently I am between a 2002 F250 with 165K miles with auto transmission for $10000 and a 2001 F250 with 186K miles with the 6 speed manual for $11000. Both trucks are in great shape (minus a tiny bit of rust on the 2001, which is no big deal).
So the question is simple: 2002 F250 with auto or 2001 F250 with manual?? I won't be towing anything heavy on a daily basis, but I have read that the ZF S6-650 is an exceptional and super durable transmission, but not so many good things about the 4R100. So is the manual worth the extra $1000 and the extra 22K miles?
my apologies if this is too long.
Thanks in advance,
