Wasn't sure where to drop this one. I have a 2002 7.3 with 275k miles. I've had the truck about 8 years and I've been happy. I actually have it listed for sale on here. However, she needs an oil pan in the near future. It's too much work for me and I'm not sure I want to pay for it's replacement, bc there is a good chance the cost could snow ball. I'm in NY and to get a clean 7.3 from the south will cost me 15k. So my question is, for that money, and knowing that I'm paying a premium for the model, what other trucks might I consider for 15 to 20k? I like my ford, but my loyalty is to quality and my wallet, so other makes are on the table. I don't have to have a diesel, but I like to know that I can haul whatever I want. I've done a little research, but looking for opinions...I think. 🙂 Quality and reliable are my key needs. So...should I stick with an older 7.3 or do something different? Thanks!
