This is how the story goes

My father was out washing his truck and a guy approached him and said how much you want for your truck, my dad replied "Its not for sale" the guy came back and said "37000 cash for your 2004 XLT supercab shortbox 4x4. My dad was taken back and asked for his card. so as the day progressed he was thinking and today he decided he is keeping it as he does not want a truck payment he just payed it off.and he loves it. (wish I had a recent pic you guys would love it).

I want a diesel and my dad said he wants me in a newer vehicle with warranty and is willing to co sign. so saturday comes and goes and I wake up after having a dream buying a white supercab shortbox 4x4. so I go to the computer and search and search for a truck. what I find made the hairs on the back of my neck stand up and made me stair in amazement and disbelief. I found a 2003 F-250 supercab short box 4x4 6.0 powerstroke. with only 67000 KM on it. still under ford factory warranty. now this is easily a 28-30k truck in canada. well its only 18500. :D now whats weird is its got the same miles as my fathers truck. 1 year older same bodystyle and HALF the price what the guy offered to buy my dads truck for. so I may be buying this truck and I need some people to pray for me as this has been a long time in the making. :D please pray

Congrats and good luck, bud! You might run an OASIS report on it to find out all the work that has been performed on it. They are free for Premium members or you can get it from the dealership.

It only has 6 months or less of warranty left. Or none at all. My 03's warranty expires in Aug.

Well good news...

My dad took one look at it and fell in love he is willing to cosign the loan for me to get my diesel.

Western Fleet, Lease, and Repo

thats the truck in the link.

the only problem is I live in Edmonton and its in calgary just need to do some convincing to get dad to drive me down there if they do not want to deliver the vehicle up here.

I am thinking a little ahead but I for see Headstuds and gaskets in the forseeable future. then getting rid of that nasty thing they call EGR.

im not trying to put the truck down but remember it was the first year of production on the 6.0l. get an oasis if you can on it and get a better idea of what has been done. it looks like a great truck and you should be happy with it

I know I am not trying to get ahead of myself but tomorrow I will be getting any accident history and I am getting a oasis report done tomorrow when the Dealership opens.

Coming from a Repo dealer I would make double sure it has a clean title.

Check the build date on it. Anything built after may 03 is good as I hear they made big changes then.

well got the Oasis what do you guys think

I noticed the reflash and then bam issues with turbo loss of power etc.

bad report card or clean bill of health? :dunno:

it disturbes me that it has had turbo work done to it. is there a way to reflash the computer to a different... Mild tune but better than the factory one? Im not gonna put a nasty SCT custom tune into it until I get studs guages and 4 inch turboback. and the mods are in this order
Studs
Guages
4 inch turbo back
EGR Delete.
then SCT with custom tunes. wanna make truck a happy camper.

Damn trucks are like women. spend ****loads of money to make them happy and then they make you feel happy.... :icon_ford: :woot:

Those are very common problems on the 6.0L and my OASIS shows many of those same repairs. That wouldn't keep me from buying. Good luck in your decision.

All good things come to those who Wait!! Of course I had to wait because of work and missed out on a 03 F250 Crew ... but I ended up with a pretty sweet 04 - so It worked out.


Good Luck with your (hopefully) New Purchase
