Maybe pullin the trigger on a 7.3, any input?

OK first off i've been living on the 6.0 boards for over a month cause I like the trucks. But, I have a friend with a 02 7.3 that has decided to sell during my search. Sorry if i irratae anyone for posting a 7.3 on the 6.0 boards, but I have grown to trust and know some of the guys opinions on here.

Take a look and let me know what you think. 1st off it's a buddies truck that I trust who never tows, i'm nervous about a 6" lift and towing my 25' T.T.
It's a fair deal, just really wanted a quad cab, but don't need it. 2002 seems to be a good year, I like the interior and the 7.3.
It runs really good and has a clean carfax. I just really want some insight from other owners and people who have a lift and tow, or know about this type of "rough Country" lift Thanks!

looks good I wouldnt worry about the lift too much unless you are constantly hooked up towing, get you a drop hitch and call it a day you wont regret getting a 7.3L

I would only be concerned with the lift if you plan to pull over 8K as this will cause some squatting and i didn't see air bags on that truck. Also you will need to check those tires a lot of off road type tires arnt the best for towing as it allows to much sideways play and this will make the tire fail at the most inopportune time like around a downhill corner.

Id suggest air bags to support the rear end when towing and you should be golden.
