Which one would you buy?

I am looking at buying a 2000-2003 7.3L 4x4 Excursion.


There aren't that many on the market but I have found 2 clean ones and wonder which one you guys would buy and why. Both have clean carfax reports. Both are 7.3 Limiteds with similar equipment.

1. 2000 147,000 miles. 4" Lift with Custom wheels and tires.

2. 2002 177,000 miles, bone stock.

I think both can be had for about the same price. The 2002 is probably slightly cleaner overall.

I am kind of leaning towards the 2002 because it is newer and slightly cleaner. But the dilemma is that I would want to add a lift and wheels/tires and that would be an extra expense.

Any Thoughts?

Thanks in advance.

I'd say the 2002. I look at lifted vehicles and start wondering whats they're history. Alot of the lifted vehicles are mall cruisers nowdays though. If you want to lift it... at least you know what has been done to it.

I love the Excursions!

Same money? I'd get the 2000. Less miles, and already has teh lift and wheels.

2001 excursion 4x4, 4" Magnaflow SS exhaust, AEM Brute Force intake, 05 conversion, 6k HID's, after market tail lights, and thats it for now. More to come..

'02 without the Diode trans and lift..Most excursions lifted use a truck based lift..much better results can be done useing the correct parts that a Excursion needs..Check all the posts about what can be done. I've helped hundreds fix the Ex. handling problems.

Did the 2000 have the diode transmission? I thought that was only some of the 2001s? Could be a good point on the lift, I need to find out the details on it.

Send a message via AIM to Dasaliac03 Send a message via Skype™ to Dasaliac03
if it were me, id price the lift/wheel/tire brand new, and deduct that price from the price that the 2002 is at and offer them that, and explain to the seller that you can get a similar one with the stuff already done for about the same price with less milage
