Fix it or sell it

2005 F-350 CCSB 4x4. 243,000 miles as of right now.

Fix it up or sell it? Fixing it would be studs, delete, oil cooler, various odds and ends. Eventually sticks and air. But then the miles come into play.

Or sell it, get something with lower miles and build it. I wouldn't get a 6.0 though.

I see in the .ORG chat that you have had trouble getting offers.

I'd think about it this way.

Do I really need to do any of that to the truck? Is it reliable now? If not, maybe drive it for a while until the market picks back up. Are you a patient man? You have a good point with if you do all that and you'll still have a truck with over 200,000 miles on it. There'd always be the concern of it's longevity.

Going for something else could get something with less miles, but would you have a monthly payment? AND then do the stuff on top of that.

Which would be easier on your wallet? Is that even a consideraton?

But, you didnt plan on putting $5000-$10,000 into it after you fixed it

Do I need to do that stuff? No. But if I was going to leave it be and just DD it I would get a half ton.

Do you know how hard it is to find the exact 7.3 I want?

Been looking/trying to sell mine for 4 months

seems like a lot of miles for a 6.0L... how much were you looking to get out of it anyways?
