Question 2003 6.0 F350...About to pull the trigger

Hello fellas...I am new to the site, but I have been reading for a while, but not joining and posting. Well...here goes, I am looking to buy an 03 F350 dually with the 6.0 powerstroke and a manufacture date of 5/03. I had the warranty records pulled and no problems with the truck, other than a couple of minor recalls. My buddy owns the car lot and had the EGR valve replaced yesterday. BTW...I really dont need anything but a 1/2 ton to pull a bass boat, I just want one. Please hit me with any thoughts and opinions! Sorrry, The truck has 140K. what mpg can I expect. thanks in advance

I love my powerstroke, always wanted one, finally got one. Mine now has 130k on it. Unless it is cheap i would not buy it. They are money pits. Almost 75 bucks for fuel filters, the factory air box is a nightmare, cost 40 dollars for oil and filter and the list goes on and on. I love my truck but my wallet seems to always be open. They all say, stud it and delete the egr but.....Add the cost up on that.

2005 YELLOW f250, REMOVED PROGRAMMER, yellow guage cluster background, JL 5 channel amp, Infinity speakers, JL sub in custom box, aftermarket seat heaters, cab lights, 3 inch Lift. idle mod, 35 inch tires. 1979 YELLOW Corvette, 2005 YELLOW Dodge SRT 4 TURBO Neon, 2005 YELLOW Monte Carlo SS and a 1987 Buick Grand National for when the NEED FOR SPEED hits. I have dreams of painting this car YELLOW!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
