Best year for Powerstroke?
I've been lurking around the OBS forum looking for a 7.3L powerstroke. My budget was forcing me to look at the OBS.
I might be able to do something different and look at getting something around $15K or so. I'm not quite sure what I can afford, but I have been looking. I've got a couple of questions:
1) What is the best year for the powerstroke in terms of reliablity? The 7.3L engine seems to be the most reliable.
2) How reliable are the 6.0L and 6.4L Powerstroke engines? I see things about the EGR valve, etc., they seem to be more problematic.
3) Is there a different in build quality between the Lariat and King Ranch editions in the newer Powerstrokes?
4) I wouldn't need 4WD, so what's the best I should be able to get for $15,000 in terms of year/mileage?
I look forward to your comments.
