'94 GMC 5.7L gas --> '03 F250 6.0 PSD
Hey guys I'm looking to get some opinions/tips from you, the experts.
I currently own a 1994 GMC K1500 5.7L gas pickup. I have the opportunity to buy, from a family member, a 2003 F250 6.0L PSD pickup. It has 85,000 miles on it and is in mint condition.
My GMC runs great and fits my needs pretty well. The heaviest load I'll be hooking up to would be an 18' goose neck horse trailer with one horse for now (hopefully it stays that way...).
My concerns are mainly cost of ownership. I know I'll come out ahead in the fuel consumption department, but everything else concerns me (oil changes potential repairs, etc). Honestly, I really don't need a diesel right now, but it's a pretty good deal since I would be making payments without having to get an actual used car loan.
I'm kind of a diesel rook. Any input?
