wow Lol the egr cooler hose isnt that big a job really, those tourque shift trans. had a bunch of problems with a snap ring that holds a clutch pack in near the rear of the case , the noise in the front end may be the swaybar links if its a clunk type noise. you usually will tend to feel it in the floor

Thats a sweat truck, you got a GREAT deal @ 16K with 12,000 miles. Keep the oil clean the HEUI injectors don't like dirty oil.

Thanks, the actual mileage was 12843 Lol even still thats nothin for a 7.3
and yes i will be changing my oil every 3k miles. some argue thats too much but it will almost guarantee no injector failure I hope

That is a beautiful truck, and IMO a screamin deal. I gave 12K for my 96 with 100k, and felt that it was an ok deal (awesome condition, lots of new/warranteed parts). Look forward to seein it lettered.

I think you got a pretty good deal at 16000. That's basically a brand new 7.3 Trucks like that with 150.000+ miles are selling for 10-12.000 around me. The plow alone is worth a couple thousand.


VERY NICE FIND
