Test drove nice 2001 7.3

Went to the local dealership and test drove this nice 2001 F-350 crew cab long box lariat 7.3. It has a 6 in. lift, new 08 long bed, 35 toyo open country mt's, auto, fass 150 fuel system, ATS 75 hp injectors, turbonetics stg. 1 ball bearing turbo, ts 6 pos chip. Also has 180,000 on the clock. Truck runs awesome!! But the trans slips real bad between first and second and a little between second and third. The trans is completely stock never been rebuilt. The story on this truck is a guy brought it up from sterling heights and wanted all this work done to it and now he doesn' want to pay for it so the dealership is selling it for $18,900. I'll try and post some pics of it within the next couple of days.

Wow that sounds nice but alot of money for a truck with that many miles. I Love the 7.3 and would have bought another If I could have found a nice one. Instead I just bought an 05 c/c short box lariat with 6inch lift 37" tires nice exhaust with 80k miles on for $19,500 so they're way off on that price

Tell me about it. The owner of the dealership is a good family friend and he told me he was selling it for that price to get his money back out of the labor his shop put into it plus the new paint job.

I've had people around town here tell me that truck makes over 600hp. Thats a load of bat sh!t!!!! If it was 600hp, i would have been all over this truck and sold my 6.0. But my 6.0 will stomp the crap out of it.
