How much does an F250 7.3 weigh?

How much aprox. does an XLT lariat F250 with a super cab weigh? I found one about an hour and a half away but I dont know how I can get it home. The rear brake lines are bad so it cant be driven. I really want this truck but I was wondering if a tandem single wheel car trailer will handle the weight? Theyre around 7 to 8 thousand right?

Re: How much does an F250 7.3 weigh?

Chris,
Sounds pretty close. The Beef weighs in @ 8,000 with an empty aux fuel tank. Problem is these trucks are of course wider than most cars and need a wide trailer to compensate.

Good Luck on the purchase and give us details on the truck and outcome....Price, miles body....Location of truck so we can buy, er a looky. [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/tongue.gif[/img] [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/phoney.gif[/img]

Welcome to the basement. Lots of knowledge here!

Ron

Re: How much does an F250 7.3 weigh?

Well the truck is an 89. Body is rough which is what I want because with a rough body I can get it cheaper and I have a few years to work on it (I'm only 14). Its an XLT Lariat 4x4 5spd which is exactly what I'm looking for. Its in Connecticut which would be quite a hike from you but if you want to pick it up for me [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/wink.gif[/img]. I am hoping that if I get it I can get it for about 12 to 13 hundred. I hope I get it because this is exactly what I invisioned in my head when I thought " well my uncle had that 89 that had over 400k on it and ran great, damn I wish he sold that when I was older." Its on Ebay if you look under Ford F250. I'll inform you tommorow on how it goes as the auction ends tommorow. That trailer I was talking about hauls big ole caddys for demos. Go to racingredneck.com . That car is a 69 painted up like a cow, ran for 5 derbys.
Thanks for the quick reply.
Chris

Re: How much does an F250 7.3 weigh?

Re: How much does an F250 7.3 weigh?

a word of advice to ya Chris. by al means drive the truck. i knwo you cant break but you can downshift which will be as close to a break as you can get. check all the fluid levels and how they look. if somehting is very cloudy or has water droplets in it, just pass that truck up. trust me, i passed on several trucks befofe i baught my own truck. also check under the truck for any oil stains or coolant puddles. if you see them and they are thick or big, pass it up. you'll end up, more than likely, replacin the rear seal or rear main. i had to do that (luckily my dealer paid for it) them seals are very expensive to install. also check the belts to make sure they aint cracked or loose. check all gauges, and play with everything you can. you might also want to cehck the fuel tanks to make sure they aint leakin. when you drive it (slow) shift normal than just about peel out on a straight away to see how it performs. make it rumble. also make sure the fuel tank switch works, wind shield wipers, blinkers, etc etc. i know im borin you but you need a truck that will last you. ask me how i know to check for these things...i'll tell you becasue i didnt check tehm until i took my truck home and you guessed it, i paid dearly for it. but hey, im gonna have a bad ass truck after my fresh paint, stacks, and propane along with new apolstery.

im like you, im not old enough to drive yet. (will be this comin november).............Gibson

Re: How much does an F250 7.3 weigh?

I think they lightened them up a bit when they changed the body in '92. My '91 ex cab full of fuel and with a back seat full of misc junk tips the scales between 7000-7200.

Re: How much does an F250 7.3 weigh?

I got you all beat I tip the scales at 10000 plus most days, and that is before I load any material in the bed. But then again most of you guys dont use your trucks the way I use mine. [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/cool.gif[/img]
