I think that truck is WAY over priced. You can get an 08 for that price.

I'm sure others will argue that it is priced right with everything on it. Personally, I wouldn't pay that much for a 2002 truck regardless of the mileage on it when I can buy a newer truck with a lot less miles.

With that said, it is a very nice looking truck with low miles considering the year.

The biggest factor to your mileage is going to be what gears are in the axles? I had a Jeep with factory 3.21 that got about 20 hwy mpg and I put 35s on the milage dropped BAD. I changed the gears to 4.10s and recovered a decent bit of mpg.

And that is WAY overpriced. I just bout a King Ranch 08 for 23k. No it wasn't lifted, but things lift lifts and mods are personal things. I always look at buying a vehicle like thiss; If I pay $xxxx for the truck and total it on the way home, what is my insurance going to pay? And unless you have agreed value insurance, you will get paid for a stock pickup's NADA value. They do NOT add any value insurance wise for lifts, tires, wheels, etc etc...

One other thing to look at is having a "big bad lifted diesel truck" how was it treated and maintained by the previous owner? I would personally shop around, find a closer to stock 7.3 that is less likely to have been beat on and mod it from there... just my .02

I bought a 2002 7.3 with lift and 35s and 150,000 miles and paid 18000. As far as fuel mileage goes I get around 15city and 17hwy. The truck your lookin at is beautiful. I have to agree with others that the price is a little ridiculous.

I have a 2002 F250 4x4 with a 8.5 pro comp lift and 38x15.5 on 20s Nito Mudgraplers, 3:73 gears and I normally get 10mpg around town and hwy i get 15-17 mpg. I do drive it hard around town but still the best I have ever gotten in town is 12 mpg. Before I lifted it I got 18 city and 20-22 hwy. I suspect that since that that truck is geared right in the city it probably will do ok like 11-12 but hwy is probably only going to be 13-15. That just my "guestements" though. I have heard of people with the same set up as mine getting 20mpg but I have never seen it. My transmission exploded on me just recently so hopefully after I get it built I am hoping it will increase my mileage some because it has seemed like my trans has been slipping for a while and I have been finding clutch material in my transmission pan. Another thing to keep in mind is that it is going to have big expensive repairs when it break and depending on how it was treated in the past, It might break often. Along with that, I agree with dieselmatt that the truck is way overpriced. You could buy and good truck and then lift it just like that for less. You would also have the piece of mind that it was all done right. But, it is a nice truck and if you deep enough pockets to afford it and are just in love with it then get it.

I get 16.2 combined in my truck. I have a 6" lift with 35's. And as far as the price i'd say keep looking. Try and find a vehicle that is local because dealerships think the value of the 7.3 is going up with gold values. 6.0 prices are falling and 7.3 keep going up Im not complaining though since I own one. Plus you'll have to pay taxes and license fees. Not to mention the lift and those tires more than likely reaked havoc on that poor transmission. Find out who the trans was rebuilt by and how long ago. If they have documents proving that it was.

I got a very very good deal on my 02 CCLB XLT with 98K miles, 6" lift, new balljoints, viper alarm BRAND new wheels and tires, and amp steps. Keep looking.

On another note that OBS is pretty sweet though.
