new guy from jersey

What's up guys. I'm Travis. Looking to finally get my own powerstroke. My fathers had one for years and I drive 4 generations of them at work. Lookin forward to getting some help from you guys.

Currently my DD is a 01 Mazda B3000 2wd. As much as I love that little truck, it can't tow my of road rig, an 88 Toyota hilux.

Anyways, see ya around

Right now I'm looking at an 02 7.3 6SPD. I just need to know how those engines fare after 200-220k. I know that's pretty much breaking in but still.

I'm liking the big print

Those miles on a 7.3 are no problem if it has been maintained properly, and a plus is that truck has the stronger manual transmission.
