Am I doing the right thing?

Well tomorrow afternoon I am heading to the dealership to trade my truck in on a 05 6.0 I really hope I am doing the right thing


1999 Regular cab, 142,000 needs body work ( bottom of drivers door and tailgate rusting) perhaps a trans, and i am sure wheel bearings soon.



2005 6.0 Auto xlt sport has the black leather 6disc changer , 4" lift brand new 35's spray in bed liner, hardly a scratch on it.

I am keeping my roll n lock, harley heads, recon markers, and tails. They are giving me 11 for my truck and selling theirs for 27. I think it turned out to be a pretty good deal but i am nervous lettin my truck go

$27,000 for a 05 Super cab seems kinda high to me unless it's low mileage and super super clean! Nice lookin ride though! Good luck. I traded in my 02 7.3 for my 06 6.0 and sometimes I regret it but other times I don't. Expect your fuel mileage to drop. But expect power to increase.

That is a nice looking 05. Question; Where did you get the head lights in your 99 they look great. Would like to have a set for my 99.
