Would someone be so kind to do an Oasis and or Carfax please?

I'm sorry to ask guys, but it seems that I am spending a small fortune on Carfax. Perhaps someone could run a Carfax or Oasis on 1FTXW43R68EA37566. This is a truck that I'm interested in, but Autocheck left me feeling cautious.

Thanks in advance,
Gil

DieselFord,

Thanks a bunch, though it is interesting, it doesn't really help me very much. I've never seen an Oasis report, I'm assuming that it will show me service work performed at the dealership. Am I correct?

This truck is in TX and I'm in KY, so I'm trying to learn as much as I can about it before buying or passing on it.

Thanks for that. I've decided that the Ford diesels are just too much trouble for me. I see too many people with severe problems with the 6.4L. I know I'm stepping on toes, and that's not my intention. I know also that there are many happy 6.4L owners too. But gee whiz, removing the cab to replace head gaskets and also seeing that head gaskets are replaced on these engines with what is almost routine frequency, that's just more than I'm willing to tolerate.

But again, thank you for the Oasis and the copy of the window sticker. Good luck to all of the Powerstroke owners, I'm going to be buying an 07' Ram 3500 Laramie dually in about 2 hours.

I'm going to advertise my F250 for sale in the For Sale Section. Anyone wanna buy my F350 in my sig? It runs like a raped ape and will roll coal if you are into that sort of thing. It just won't start without laying a gasoline soaked rag over the intake.

I'd love to see my original sticker, my truck has been repainted and the Door Sticker was removed...

try from this start and make sure of the O's and zero's

Use your VIN number to get Ford Window Sticker

Thank you for the new link, still doesn't like my VIN

I even try changing one of the last 3 digits a dz times, it's 17 characters, no "zeros", must be my browser's security settings or something (I'm pretty locked-up).

Thx anyway, still a cool link!
