(Possible) new owner of a p'stroke

Names Tyler, joined to get some info before buying.

Born and bred a Chevy Man, and honestly still am but in my search for a new truck i am finding more Fords that meet my criteria and are in my price range than anything else, so here i am. Hoping to re search a bit on my next purchase to be sure it is what i am looking for.

Currently i own an 89 Chevy K5 blazer on tons as a toy, a '10 ford escape the wife drives, and a 98 Grand cherokee i drive. Just sold my 2003 Chevy Silverado 1500 Z71, looking to replace it with something a bit better suited for towing the big ugly blazer.

Congrats on the "new" truck! I have a late '99 and a '01. My son has a '00. You'll love the 7.3. Great engine!
