2002 F250 crew cab XLT short box 4x4 (no offroad package though), 7.3 diesel with 95k miles. 6" lift, brand new 35" tires, looks to be super clean. They want $23,995 and are damn firm on it.

Opinions?

Are you high? Its a 11 year old truck with 100K. 10-12K gets you in line with actual value.

use all that money to buy like 4 or 5 pmags instead!

HELL NO


Don't get caught up in the bling. Math is your friend.
Link Posted: 1/17/2013 10:42:24 PM EDT
That's INSANE. Seriously, thats twice what that truck is worth. Its super clean though!

The 7.3 was a good engine in its day, but if your looking for HP, or a truck that doesn't ride and drive like a brick mounted to a dull pair of unlaced figure skates, look elsewhere.
Link Posted: 1/17/2013 10:45:33 PM EDT
NOPE. It appears very clean but, too many miles for the price and its been lifted..Cant haul shit because it wont handle correctly. Unless you just plan on driving around town pumping black diesel smoke at intersections.
Link Posted: 1/17/2013 10:45:38 PM EDT
that truck looks really clean, no apparent rust or even leaks on it from photos .. engine bay looks good, but i would add another 6k and get a 2012 xl 4x4 crew cab diesel BRAND new with full warranty and everything ..
Link Posted: 1/17/2013 10:45:41 PM EDT
As low as they were running that thing on fuel, I'd wonder how much more life the fuel pump has in it...
Link Posted: 1/17/2013 10:45:47 PM EDT
You could buy 2 of those trucks for that.
Link Posted: 1/17/2013 10:47:38 PM EDT
Way over priced. Don't be " the sucker".

TOO MUCH!!!!!! The mileage on a diesel is no big deal but you can get a lot newer for less.

ETA: What else did they do to it? There could be a lot of upgrades on the engine and tranny. As I was saying too much I remembered a friend who was selling his 05 Dodge for 23K because of the new motor and trans in it.

Wow. High price.

I have a '99 F350, 7.3, 4x4, crew cab, long bed, bought at 100k miles, pretty clean...10k
Link Posted: 1/17/2013 10:51:56 PM EDT
It's a good looking truck, don't buy it.
Link Posted: 1/17/2013 10:52:55 PM EDT
Looks like a clean truck, but I agree. Way too much money.
Link Posted: 1/17/2013 10:53:43 PM EDT
Insane.

But it sure is purty.

Don't let them pressure you into paying more than you think its worth, I did that one and a differential and transfer case later I traded to POS in.
Link Posted: 1/17/2013 10:56:55 PM EDT

Did you check KBB.com?? Its showing it around 15 ish in my zip (private party). You can add maybe 3k for the lift and tires. Its clean, dont get me wrong, but no, bad deal.
Link Posted: 1/17/2013 10:57:35 PM EDT
dont do it!
Link Posted: 1/17/2013 10:58:57 PM EDT
That's a tough one, that's low mileage on an excellent example of one of the greatest trucks made in the last 25 years. As someone in the car business, that's a nice truck. However, it's too much money. Fair price on that should really be around 20k.

But then again, if I were selling that truck and someone came in and offered me 20, I'd look them in the eye and say, "Find another one." Because you won't, not that clean with mileage like that.
Link Posted: 1/17/2013 11:19:37 PM EDT
Way too high of a price.

Hell, I've got an '06 Ram 3500 with the Cummins and 6-spd, with only 56k miles on it and I can't sell it for $19k
Link Posted: 1/17/2013 11:21:39 PM EDT
Best engine ever, but that's too much on the price.

thats what the damn highschool kids around here do..Lifted truck and at every intersection they romp on it and you cant see anything except black smoke for about a block.

As far as pulling things, a buddy of mine lifted his f250 6 inches, big tires, and when pulling a car trailer it never handled right again.

Link Posted: 1/18/2013 12:31:44 AM EDT
Don't do it.

That $24000 could get you a couple of unopened cases of M855.

Buy an old Honda and convert the rest to gold or land. You'll understand in about 6-8 months.

Yep, the older ones have shot up in value as everyone learns the new Urea crap sucks ass. That said you could buy that truck in AK for under 10k a few months ago. I have a 3 position chip for that truck if it is a VH2 code (I think)

I traded my 02 F350 in on an 05 Dually, I got 27k for it with 87k miles, in April 05. Wish I still had both those trucks. Now I just have my old 97 7.3 and an 04 F450, never had a bad Ford Truck.

Don't walk, but run away from this, uhh deal.
Link Posted: 1/18/2013 1:36:39 AM EDT
This is arfcom... buy two.

j/k. I agree with the others, too high. Buy another at a reasonable price and fix it up to your own specs.
Link Posted: 1/18/2013 1:48:25 AM EDT
That is an old ass truck that has had the shit detailed out of it, nothing more. It's not that clean either. The sides of the frame, diff, springs, etc have all been painted to make your think "it's never been off the road". Cheap fake ass chrome all over it and 4 off-brand no-name tires that are too small for the truck. No fucking thanks.
Link Posted: 1/18/2013 1:50:45 AM EDT
Does it come with any Pmags?

I have a 7.3, great engine.

I think i'd rather have a Colt M16A2.
Link Posted: 1/18/2013 4:51:22 AM EDT
I wouldn't go anywhere near $20k on it. And I hate it when they coat everything black to make it look new, usually there's overspray all over and it takes a while for slow leaks to resurface after it was all washed off.
Don't fall in love with thing and stick closer to about a $15k max. for one in nice shape.

Yep, they rattle canned the shit out of the wheel wells and leaf springs.

You want NADA and not KBB. KBB's values are crack induced

Yeah, ummm no. It's worth maybe 2/3 of that, max, if it's spotless and in perfect mechanical condition.

Yeah, we buy these in Nevada for 12K at most.

your money though.

I wouldn't. While the 7.3 was a great motor, it wasn't without it's problems.

That's a lot of coin for a 12 year old truck with that mileage.
Link Posted: 1/18/2013 5:00:53 AM EDT
Meh not a panny dropper! Id pass. Buy a new one with a warranty and be sure to sell if before the warranty is up
Link Posted: 1/18/2013 5:03:36 AM EDT
Way too much.

Im looking for a 7.3 as well, but most I have been seeing are in the 10-15K range.
Link Posted: 1/18/2013 5:05:06 AM EDT
That's a ridiculous figure on that truck. Don't let people tack on thousands for cosmetic improvements. Although I'm quite fond of the 7.3's I think 12k is a more reasonable number. I'd say look elsewhere and buy one from an old fart who babied it. I have a 2001 7.3 4x4 with 340k on it that I bought at 315k from an old timer in pristine condition for 7500 and its my daily driver with no issues.

I would pass
