I am in the works of trading my f150 for a 99-02 F250 4x4 ex cab and have a few ????
First off I am new to the Powerstroke and wondered if anyone had some good advice about what I'm about to venture in to. The truck I am going to trade for will have under 100k as my bank will finance noting over.
I currently have a Ram 2500 work horse that I love but I need something I can haul with if my helpers need the Dodge. I am not a truck hater except when it comes to GM trucks. I've always been a ford man but I hve become a Dodge fan after the last couple I have owned.
So I have no idea about the truck I am going to trade for. My bank has my info and has given it to several of their preferd dealerships. I don't plan on setteling on the first thing they send my way so what are some good things to look for. I have already read the "what to look for post" and would love any input you guys can give me such as:
MPG's, typical torque and HP, longevity of moter and tranny, any little common quirks or neccesities to be delt with. I do not haul much and when I do it's a 20' trailer with no more than 8k on it.
Thanks for the help and I'll update when I get the truck
