whats wrong with your 99? and 75k is going to be hard, i usually calculate 15k a year for mileage x 11 (2003) and 165k would be the national average for a 7.3, so finding one with 75k is going to be hard and expensive with no gains over your 99(probably be in the 20k range for a 4x4), you would be more in the positive in refreshing/rebuilding your 99 and putting a nice bts/john woods trans in it if its auto.
as for the 6.4, removing the emissions falls under federal law, so any state can enforce it, so even if you travel outside of Maryland and say go to another state, they could impound your truck if they chose to(worse case scenario)/fine you. (something to keep in mind)
as for bulletproofing the 6.4l it looks like the same as the 6.0, head-studs and egr, which there are upgrades that keep the egr intact, as for the cat/dpf delete, i didn't say to do it, but you can either gut it, or make it removable and reinstall it for your emissions test(i know a ton of people that do that). if you gut it(will need a tuner), then it will pass visual, but if your state does more than a opacity test it might fail emissions test.
but again this falls under federal law, so it is at your own risk and neither me nor this forum is at fault if you decide to break it.
this is one of the reasons i love the 7.3, the only emissions on it are the pcv on the passenger valve cover, and no cat, so as long as im not blow black smoke from it, i can pretty much do anything i want to it.
