New here.

Looking at an 01 F350 Crew/Dually, 7.3 w/345k on the odo. Truck is in overall good condition. Asking price was $10k, have them down to $7.5k Is this a good deal?

I would personally go for the 01 because of the 7.3l. The 04 would take a few thousand to put into it to help make it less troublesome. There are a lot of guys that have the 6.0l with and without issues. I would make sure everything is ok on the 01 though. Depending on its history 375k mi could be ok or bad. I would definitely have it gone through real well.

The 04 6.0L is a one owner. Purchased locally 7/04, transmission replaced by Ford 10/05, Torque converter solenoid replaced, trans pan gasket replaced, EGR valve replaced 6/06, regular service performed by Ford. This info. is reported by CarFax. Pulling an Oasis report tomorrow from the dealer that sold it new and performed most of the repairs/maintenance.

Find out the oasis, but the 6leaker has half the miles, they really are a great motor, but sometimes they fail often, just something to think about, the 7.3 is not known much for a fail, but the do still anyway, and with those miles I would be Leary, and I buy trucks barely north of 300k, would never buy something past 350, that's to much of a risk unless I have enough cash to buy a spare engine too, not everything gets done at shops, and not everyone is COMPLETELY honest

id roll with the 6.0 and let it go till it breaks then stud it. international recommends a rebuild on the 7.3 at 350K miles so its basically time or you can run it and just see how it goes... i would definitely have that 7.3 or the 6.0 gone through pretty tough either way.
