Choosing between a 7.3 and 6.0
I posted this in the excursion forum also, but I know it will get a lot more views here. Thanks for y'all's help!
I've been looking for an excursion for awhile. Now, i've found two. I was dead set on a 7.3, but now i think I might want a 6.0. So here's the two excursion.
2001 7.3 4wd limited
-original owner, 70 year old man
-middle seat has been sat on maybe a dozen times, third row was taken out and put in a spare bedroom the day he brought it home from the dealer.
-middle bench and third row bench
-turbo temp monitor
-trans. temp, turbo boost, and egt pillar gauges
-no performance mods
-stanadyne in every fill up
-transmission had a problem at 50,000, the old man said it was a part part in there that ford knew about but didn't recall. he said basically a rebuilt tranny by ford.
-pulled a 5,900 boat probably a dozen times a year
-pretty much untouched stock truck
2005 eb 4wd
-interior is clean, two front seats show some wear
-second row captains and third row bench very clean
*feb.08, 69,396 miles replaced 2,3,6,8 injectors
*feb.08, 69,396 miles replaced egr cooler hose and resealed egr cooler
*apr.08, 73,450 miles replaced hpop fittings
*sep.08, 92,113 miles cleaned turbo veins
-18" wheels with 33's
-the owner now replaced the FICM this year
I was set on the 7.3, but now I'm not sure. What are your opinions on both and if you were in my shoes which would you buy?
Thanks - Shaun
