To buy? Or not to buy? 96 f250
Hey guys! New to the forum so hopefully I can get some helpful tips. Im not new to powerstrokes, I just haven't had one in a while. My first truck was a 2000 f250 with the trusty 7.3 in her. Right now I have a fuel efficient family vehicle but I want something just for me and that I don't have to worry about getting the interior tore up with my work. So, a guy I work with has a 96 f250 with the trusty 7.3 in it (big plus for me.) The exterior is good, almost too good actually. My question is, it has 202k on the odo however the transmission HAS been replaced in it roughly 50k miles ago. If I were to purchase it now, should that tranny last atleast another 150k-200k? I baby all my vehicles and that wouldn't be any different for this one. Just kinda weary about that tranny going out again here soon. He's asking 4,000 for it which is about 3,000 less than what it books for. I work with him so I don't think he would lead me astray. All of the owners were older guys (including him) so I know it was taken care of pretty well. Any help would be great, thanks so much in advance for advice!!
