Impossible to find?

hey,
Im new to the forums and looking for some advise. Iv been looking for a 7.3 powerstroke for a couple weeks now and im having trouble finding a truck that i can get financed. My budget is 10k, 12k for the right truck. I found a 99 f250 with 180k miles for $7,500 and thought it was the one till the bank said they wouldnt give me a loan because of the age and mileage so i went to a couple credit unions and they said the truck had to be 2003 or newer with a max of 120k miles. I want to stay away for 6.0s and spending more money isnt an option so is it realistic that i could find an 03' 7.3 with 120k or less miles for 10-12k?

Anything is possible. It took me years to find the Excursion I wanted. You might need to broaden your search area or be patient.

might be pretty tough. I just bought an 02 122k crew cab for 14k. Like the guy above said, wait, or you may have to look outta state. I bought mine 8 hrs from home just to find a 7.3 without crazy mileage, and I've been shopping for 6 months. good luck

Try Navy Federal. They gave me an $18k loan on my truck with 192k on it.

What is the area you're looking in? I spent 6 months and ended up driving from GA to VA to get my truck.

Confederate Diesel, where only the finest JB Weld is used on your truck.
