Question 2000 F350 XLT 7.3L, 6SPD

Hi all,

I'm looking at buying a 2000 F350, 4x4, XLT, crew cab, long box, 7.3L, 6SPD. The truck is from Texas. It is very clean with 136,000 miles. The price is $15,000. Basically I would like to now if there was any issues with this year of 7.3L and 6SPD. I'm looking for a good long lasting motor/trans. The truck only has a few minor scratches and dings.

Thanks for any feedback.
Greg

Welcome to the Site! That doesn't sound too bad for that truck. There's a link somewhere on the site on what to look for. Basically if it runs good and shifts good without making strange noises, it's probably OK. Also need to be able to check out the 4wd to make sure it works properly. Stick around - somebody will offer more advice.

Thanks Al. Being a TX truck it's entire life I doubt the 4wd was even used much. I hear the 2000 7.3L is a solid engine. Forged rods and pistons? Thanks for the input.

Martin,
Great info. Thanks!! I've been reading more on the 2000 7.3L and 6SPD that they should be a good bullet proof combo. The truck does have a goose neck. Which leads me to believe he hauled a horse trailer around being from TX.
