177k is a lot of miles?Hey guys I'm new here and I am looking to learn a little about the 7.3.
I have owned nothing but gm gassers and am new to diesels but i have done a lot of reading.
Anyway I have been driving a whole lot more for work and my current truck a 2006 sierra denali awd 8" lift and 33's gets about 13-14 mpg and its was killing me. So I picked up a car to use as a DD. Now I have the truck forsale and I am looking to pick up a used truck i can use for work (towing/hauling/plowing) So i'd be putting 7K or so miles per year on whatever truck I decide on. I am open to cummins 7.3 powerstroke or duramax.
I got a call with a guy interested in trading my truck for his plus cash. He has a 2002 7.3 F-350 lariat ext cab short bed with 16x10 and 35's at tires he has 175k miles on it and has a brand new mbrp exhaust, intake gauges (which aren't hooked up yet) and a DP tuners module. I am going to take a look at this thing friday night. Is there anything I should be looking out for? any issues once you start getting up to that high of mileage? Again this truck will be a worker not a DD. Thanks for the help guys.
