Whats goin on yall

Hey just dropped in trying to find out some info on the 7.3, i'm currently truck shopping and want a diesel, and im probably going to be looking at like a 98-01 F-250/350, as i realy dont want to drop a bunch of money.

Basicly getting a truck so i can park my stang, its getting beat to hell being used as a daily driver, and it aint the most comforatble rid back and fourth to work everyday. Plus i drive back an fourth to ohio probably 2 x a month, and just something a bit more roomy for those long cruises.

Let me know if you guys know of any major issues with any of the years in my range, and anything i should be looking for. i start the hunt tommorow, so hopefully within the next 2 weeks or so ill be able to be a legit member here!

Thanks guys, have a good one.

Matt

Newb looking for info.... I need a truck!
