Hello all. Been a member for some time just never really posted as I never had a PS. I picked up a 2010 Dodge Ram 1500 back in 2010, its been great, still love the truck, but this 06 F250 has caught my eye. Im now looking into trading my 2010 1500 straight across for this 06 F250.
Im not to concerned about the #'s as I am working at killing some negative on my finances but would like to have a bigger truck in the mean time for hauling purposes(camper, quads, Great Dane...). So far it sounds like I can get the trade for a 1:1, keep my current payments and overall loan amount wouldn't change.
My biggest concern is this truck is a lifted truck with bigger wheels/tires. Its been modified. How much should I trust this truck? Will a OASIS report tell me what I need to know? Also, this is at a Ford dealer so I am requesting they go over the entire truck top to bottom and provide a warranty on it as well. Not sure what I should be asking for in terms of a warranty and inspection though?
List of what I have found via basic searches-
1. EGR Delete?
2. Head studs or have bolts been placed?
3. scan tool during test drive – check deltas
4. Verify trans oil not burnt
5. ball joints, bearings, tie-rods
6. verify any leaks around engine bay, look at underside of hood
7. degass bottle for any white residue, look at leaf spring on drivers side as well
8. turbo boots and CAC boots
9. Transmission slippage?
The truck itself...
2006 F250 Super Duty crew cab - Lariat. 74k miles.
some kind of exhaust
Not sure of the lift, appears to be a solid kit. Has ICON shocks I believe
Everything on the truck is very clean. Engine bay is pretty dirty. You can tell they skipped detailing this area(which Im glad they did).
