I am in the market for an '99-'03 7.3 F-350 Powerstroke dually. I've always loved dually's and honestly, just need a truck- lol. Herein lies the dilemma. I have a race car that will need a tow every now and again; however, I do need a truck as I am doing some big renovations to my home...just being a newer homeowner in general for a house built in 1971 that has no association warrants the need for a pickup truck to make runs to home depot. I figured since I have the race car AND need a truck, I mine as well get the dually since they are in the same general price range as pick up trucks down here (for the years 99-02 that is). I understand being able to purchase something DOES NOT mean you can afford it (maintenance, etc.), but I am pretty handy with the wrenches (hence the built race car).
I am looking to you guys for advice as this would be my first truck purchase and my first diesel engine but not first turbo engine. Actually, all my cars (3) are turbo's lol. Let me know what you guys think because I am going to see a truck about 2 1/2 hours away from me tomorrow.
Thanks in advance!
