Every one I pulled with overheated the transmission or threw some code that put the truck into a limp mode. They are pretty, just don't use them for towing at or near capacity.

    Agreed, Chevy Diesel are out, can't afford a new one, but an 8.1L would work.

    Whatever truck you get, make sure this is the engine you put in it. All the rest are junk.

    Perfect, that will get the job done.

    From what I found out they have no bullet proofed the engine, but they are really trying to make a deal on it. The more I pulled back on wanting it, the more they are wanting to make a deal.

    Tell them you want to test drive it when it's cold. Get on a road where you can set the cruise at 48-52 mph and let it do it's thing. If it has a shimmy when the engine starts to accelerate it has the stiction issue.

    I know several people that have over 300K on the 6.0. I talked to a guy that owns a tow company that said he has over 400K on one. It is doable. Proper maintenance is the key. Can they show that the oil has been changed regularly? When I bought mine they could. It was purchased and serviced at Sanderson Ford.

    I won't buy another one.

    The 2002 F250 SRW 7.3 is 12k
    The 2006 F350 DRW 6.0 is 15k
    A couple of questions, since you seem sincere about getting a 3/4T or 1T

    How soon do you need to step into pulling a big trailer?

    Have you spent much time driving a dually around? (Ever try to park one, in Commifornia?).

    If you have some time to shop, I believe you can find better deals out there. I also know what a PITA it is to park my CCLB, SRW anywhere. In CA, I take up 1.25 spaces in width and length. Lol.

    I knew I wanted a tow rig and through research, I knew what truck I was looking to find. For me, it was a 7.3 from 99.5-01-best 7.3's made... I knew I wanted a ZF6 and didn't want to deal with an auto. I knew I wanted a CC and it had to be white (my ex wife only wanted vehicles that were black or white and black isn't for deserts, IMHO). Took me a couple of months to find mine, but I did.

    I bought mine off of PBB and flew to San Jose to buy it. It had been fleet serviced by international. It was a supervisor's truck, who had owned it since new. He ordered the truck specifically to meet his needs.

    I flew out to buy a 99.5 F350, CCLB, Lariat, 7.3, ZF6, manual transfer case and manual hubs for $8K. It was set up to tow with a GN hitch and air bags. Drove it home and knew it was going to be a solid truck for me. It has been for the past 7+ years.

    7.3's seem to command a hefty price, in these parts. Keep your eyes open. Deals are out there for both 7.3's and deleted/bulletproofed 6.0's. Lots of 6.0 deals out there.

    Edit: big changes to the 7.3, occurred in 99 and they were revised, again, in the half year. Pre-99 7.3's are good motors, but lack intercoolers, have a lower pressure/less advanced HPOP, different turbo wheel and intake, etc.
    99's have new intakes, turbo wheels, HPOP's and intercoolers.
    99.5-01's-have revised intakes and more advanced HPOP and the injectors changed a bit.
    01-to the last one, have the same changes, but they went to PCM rods. The PCM rods are not as strong as the chromoly rods and can be a weak link on a built motor.

    There are other subtle differences, but that's pretty much covers it.

    If you would pry your sorry arse out the Scottsdale Fashion Square once in a while you would know more about the BLM and the USFS (you do know those acronyms, right?).

    I have time to shop, it won't be until sometime next year, I have not DD a dually, like the stability it will add when towing a 5th wheel or if we go cab over, I currently work from home so not much driving or miles put on my DD.

    Five months ago Sanderson Ford had a nice dually for sale. It was black, <40k miles and very clean. I just couldn't see driving a dually daily. Parking has got to be a *****!
