I love my 7.3, The 6.0's seem like a crapshoot some are great and some demolish your wallet.
Plenty will argue both ways around here, lol.

how many miles on the 00? what options on it??

I personally would be slightly leary of any 185k diesel unless it also came with immaculate maintanence records.....not to say i wouldnt buy it but i would be very cautious of ANY higher milage truck just cause maintanence is so critical with them....

test drove the 04 tonight

inside was nice ,clean,out side ,,well the front bumber had a big dent ,left head ligt not fitting right,the dealer said they just out 1,400 in the truck ,one new injector,windshild,oil change,had a bully dog outlook in it as well..so tells me it was mod. so really scared of it now,needs tires........going back to try the 2000,,think thats the one we will buy,abit older but very well taken care of said oil change ever 5000,dealler did all work on it,,said he has never had a engine or tranny problem at all..and 14 is not a bad price..
