Cool Thinking about buying a '97 F250...

Hi, I found a 2 wheel drive F250 Crew Cab with a 5 speed transmission and 7.3L with only 228k miles on it. I'm going to take a look at her tomorrow. What should I look for as far as maintenance issues. Ok, I don't know much about diesels.

I am from San Antonio, Tx. I work out in the oilfield.

Thanks,

Daniel

Talking

Hey, thanks for the replies. I guess I'm still looking. I am intrigued by this F350. It has 242k miles on it but it is a long bed with a front bench seat and manual windows and door locks! All of those things I like. Two wheel drive and manual transmission as well!
