Check it out in person, research. Enter "what to look for when buying a 6.0" in the search bar and go. Hope you dont plan on actually using it as a truck, because most trucks with a lift bigger than 6" is pretty much useless IMO. Notice I said most. I'm curious as to why the mileage is so low, could have been down for some time? Or numerous times? Or maybe it just wasn't driven much. Before we get into the 6.0 vs 7.3 thing, it's all your own personal preference. Read up and get use to About 10mpg highway with those tires Best of luck sir.

I just purchased a 6.0 and went through all that decision making. There is a lot out there in terms of info and horror stories. There are some good youtube videos from Bill Hewitt at powerstroke specialty and a lot of good articles on here. Good luck
