Well I like grey but I would prefer the Lariat package, is the 03 a 6.0 or 7.3? I would go with the 02' 7.3 Lariat personally just because of personal prefernce and I know that it's a good truck and very reliable, the early 6.0 are hit and miss. But hey it's up to you.

Have an oasis report done on them and check them out a little further for warranty work, if the 03 is a 6.0 and has not had any major problems yet then I would not be afraid of it.

The 03 is the 6.0. I did an oasis report on both. Both came back pretty good. The 03 had some injector and fuel pressure problems at about 40k miles.

Keep looking. If you're willing to travel, you can get an 05 Lariat with half as many miles for about the same price.

I agree with Stroker- take your time and keep looking! they will list more every day- you just have to keep an eye out for your liking, miles and money... I got mine of eBay, in Texas and had it shipped up. (we ran carfax and oasis on it- came back ok- tranny at 10K was good until 210k!)
I searched for about 2 months in Iraq and Kuwait and another month plus back here before I found mine... It got delivered with 2 other eBay trucks from the same area- one was another I looked at even...
