Question Looking at a 2000-03 F350 7.3 CC long bed

So I have been looking for a truck for about 2 months now... Is this normal for any one to find the "Right" F350???

What I want...

2000-03 F350 4X4
WHITE it has to be white
Crew Cab
Long Bed
FX4 or Lariat
Leather
Turn knob 4x4
(Pedal's that move and parking AST. Wife is 5 foot nothing if she drives it...)

Miles less than 250k

and price 11-14k

This is what i found that is perfect BUT it is 1,500 miles away?
So i cant test drive or see it...
Do i fly out there or pass and keep looking for more of a "drivable" distance ~900 F350...

Thanks for any help that you may provide



P.S. I have been reading and (youtube) about 3-4 hours a day on the 7.3 and 6.0 so im going 7.3 and on last thing what do you think of the "powerstrokehelp.com" on youtube???

guy talks alot, some stuff is good info, other take it for a grain of salt,

if you posted this yesterday i could have drove by a saw it today while i was in denver haha...
basing it off my Colorado knowledge
1. the step bar is bent, so its been offroad in the mountains more than likely
2. going to need a new condenser for a/c all the fins are bent
3. carfax is clean though, came from california, so it might have a cat but not 100% positive on that.

other than that, it looks clean, wish there was a undercarriage picture and engine bay picture to see the coolant resivior

looks like they bought it from a auto auction, so there is going to be no history on it

Thank you for your info and i really appreciate that you would have looked at the truck for me...

I just saw the step bar bent and then i saw the A/C condenser fins
My be i should look a little harder or wait a little longer for the "Right" truck...

yeah the steps usually take a bitting up here when there off-road, the wheel base is to long, and bottoms out

the condenser is easy to replace yourself, i think it cost around $70 to legally evacuate it, but its common on these, i even need to replace mine(not as bad as that one)

i paid 15k for my 02 xlt in april with 116k miles on it, so they are out there, if you give on the leather you can find a xlt with the power pedals and get some some nice newer sd seats(they go for 1200-2k for a complete set on eBay, my eventual goal)

I have found really nice trucks that had everything but leather that is why im looking at the fx4 or lariat... Will all the "power" hook ups plug in from cloth to leather seats??

as long as it has power cloth seats(like mine has dual power seats), then all the wiring is there, if not then its just a matter of running hot/negative wires to the seat.


as far as seats matter from 99-07 the frame are the same/wiring is the same, so you could go with aftermarket replacement covers like catskinz, or etc. and besides the heated seat option on the lariet/KR the wiring/electronics are the same as the cloth powers seats.

is there a "cross reference" of model years that go with each other for parts?

yes and no, i haven't seen one online,

the generation gaps are
99-04
05-07 (front end and dash upgraded)
08-11(i believe)
12-current

with that said the cab is unchanged pretty much from 99-current minus the firewall/rear wall, so alot of parts(interior included) are interchangeable/upgradable
