I have a 08 gmc sierra with the 4.8 and i don't lik how it tows and the MPG while towing, and the seat sux looking to jump back into a diesel again. I found a 2000 ford EX limited with the 7.3 in it. whats amazing is it's in mint condishion and only has 36k on it. for 19,900. i think i should go over their and pull the trigger on it. what all ya think?

On my last 7.3 it was a standard cab xlt 4x4, with 6 inch lift, 35 inch mud terrans, ts chip, cai, and 5 " exhust. Also had a ram air hood but running 65 to 70 mph on longer trips I could get just over 21. In town was around 16 -17 if easy on the go pedal. This truck was a 6 speed tough which I am sure helped

sorry mine says not close to stock, rebuilt tranny, regulated return, 38r, swamps 175/146 sticks, afe intake, 4' turbo back straight exhaust, a few other goodies i can't remember and i drove from canada to Georgia to visit Jodi and had custom tuning, so ya not close to stock. i was just saying when he is tuned to about 400 he will get that kind of fuel milage, because that was my experience. my 2 cents.
drove it 8 years from stock to final work before being in an accident, oh ya forgot i also removed the rear suspension and built a 4 link air ride that i used for about a month before the accident, this milage didn't change much from stock to built as long as you were easy on the little skinny pedal.

You need to be calling them right now, or headed over there with a pocket full of cash cause if you don't, it'll be sold soon.

I just bought a 2001 f250 lariat crew cab in june with 53k on it and i paid 21,000 for it, i know it was alot of cash for that but the truck was almost in showroom condition and i know the original owner and he is OCD about the maintanence and keeping it clean it stayed under a cover and the leather seats and floor mats were always covered with towels it looked like the truck had never been driven.
