2002 F250 for 2001 F350 What U think?

I have a 02 f250 crew lariat 4x4 150k miles swb srw. I am considering trading for a 2001 F350 crew lariat 4x4 220K miles lwb drw with a take 3 car hauler. I am wanting the dually and trailer to do some hauling i have an opportunity to make some extra money. What are yall's thoughts? I am a little concerned about the mileage. Does anyone know the best place to get a overhaul kit for the 7.3? What are some factors I should consider? I drove the 350 and the gear changes weren't as smooth as my truck. I have a good tranny guy that I intend on having re work the tranny. The man i am buying it from says the torque converter was replaced but that was the only major work done to it. Also thinking about puting on the alcoa kit if anyone knows anything about that I would appreciate the info.

Bump. Come on guys I just want some opinions. Especially about the 220k on the f350. Do you think the mileage is ok on the 7.3? Those of you that have that many miles please let me know what im in for in the way of possible repairs.

Do you know anyone on here that is in the business? I sure could use a unbiased opinion of how the industry is doing/how much work is out there and any tricks of the trade there might be to save a dollar. The only guys I have talked to about this is the ones trying to sell me something.

for what it's worth, I have 280K miles on my F-250 7.3...runs like a champ! I would definitely get the trans looked at and adjust the price/trade accordingly.

Good Luck
