Convince me to buy a powerstroke
Hi everyone, I currently drive a 2007 F-150 Lariat but have always wanted a deisel. Well last week my cousin was joking around and said he'd trade me his 2000 F250 for my truck. We kind of just laughed it off but then I really started thinking about it. Recently I have been doing a lot more towing (24ft enclosed race trailer) and it puts my little F150 to the test every time. Also winter is coming and I need to buy a plow truck or pay someone to plow. Heres the specs of each truck, I need advise.
My 07 F-150 Lariat Crew Cab
kbb = $19,500
leather, 5.4, roush exhaust, pretty much stock
His 00 F-250 XLT Extended Cab
kbb = $13,700
power commander, 7.3 turbo, 5" exhaust, other than that stock
Im leaning towards the trade even though it is a $5,800 hit. Being a powerstroke forum, Im assuming I'll get a biased opinion out of a lot of you but I guess I'm just curious if there is any common issues or concerns I should be aware of. Ive never owned a deisel, anything I should know before getting one? I'm going to look at his truck this weekend and let you know how it turns out.
