well i dont know wat kind of help your looking for, but ill give you the little tips ive learned....Not trying to scare you away, but i wouldnt buy a diesel at 15-16.....they are not cheap to keep....it cost more to do anything to them...Up Keep, Aftermarket, you name it....I personally wish i would have waited a little longer to get into the diesel game...started at 22 and its just tuff, havent been doin it long, but i know i wouldnt start at 15-16.....

Yeah, I have had my self set on a diesel, im a cummins guy but this powerstroke popped up i know them personally, I know diesels are pricey, but with mpg and gas prices i have figured i will still come out on top with that. I have a good steady job for a 15 year old, do alot of landscaping and property maintenance, i need to have the option to pull a gooseneck which this truck has, im not a big mudder offroader, dont need 4x4, a truck is made to work. This 7.3 will pull a house anyways, i was just wondering for some advice about this truck and if its worth the price. He would give it to me for 5k cash.

Your going to be truck poor. Get something cheaper and more economical. Now is the time to have fun and do things...you don't want to be home because your truck is nickle and dimeing you to death...

Ok....probably should save that for when you get on the job....or maybe 7.3 explorer would be more appropriate. On the other hand.....good luck with the truck.
