    At this time I am driving a 1995 f-250 and am trying to get ahold of a low mileage 94-96 f-350 7.3. Let me say a few things, first off watch out that the truck wasn't pulling a gooseneck around the country most of its life. For some reason, a lot of these years 2 and 350's up for sale were used for 5th wheel towing. Not saying that this one was, but make sure it isn't. Second, if this is a solid truck then that is a good deal. Third, if you do buy it, your going to love the towing power of the 7.3 . I've driven a few before and one for a night plowing. good luck with the loan and post pics of it in your drive sometime!

    Even if that truck was pulling for a while, it never hurts to run the engine at load a bit. That 7.3 is a damn good engine. Its a bit up there with 180k but its got lots of life left in it.

    I think the price is a bit high though, as you can get a 99-05 range used with under 80k for right around 19k-25k. Thats a crew cab fully loaded.
