Lift my 4x2, or buy a 4.4?
I just started thinking about this today...I have an early 99 7.3 (mods in the sig) that is a red rear-wheel drive, and while the body is in "okay" shape (minimal rust but the bed needs replacing, the powertrain seems to be just fine. the Odo reads 206,xxx miles. Starts quickly every morning, and no codes thrown.
I have a few questions;
1. How much could I probably sell my truck for? I paid $4500 for it, because the owner likely knew that the HPOP was about to go out.
2. Should I keep my 4x2 and buy the Fabtech 6" lift kit for it? I do not pull anything; I haul in the bed multiple times a month, and that's about it.
3. Should I sell my 4x2 and buy a 4x4? I want liftability, and some decent offroadability, should the need arise.
Is a 4x4 really worth it? I'd just like to think about it before throwing money into tires and a lift. I'm thinking about doing a bedliner before selling, though.
If you ever think something I post is ridiculous or uneducated, just remember that I probably learned it from here.
