Let me start off by saying I'm new to the forum, I'm also going to be new to the diesel world. I am thinking about buying a 2014 6.7l f250 Crew cab. It does have some mods done to it and that is what I have questions about. It has a 6" rough country lift with 37" tires. Is this set up going to cause issues to the stock 3.55 gears or to the tranny? It does have an intake, exhaust and mini tuner, soon thinking that should help with the power loss, am I correct by thinking that? I have also attached a link to the truck, if you don't mind taking a look at it and telling me if you think the price is fair or not. Thanks for any and all help!

Do you think the 3.55 gears are ok with the 37" tires? I hardly pull anything and mostly drive city miles.

It's got a lift, rims and tires, tuner, intake and exhaust. I has amp research nerf bars and JL audio system. Is that not worth it?

A friend of mine bought a new one for $46K. Granted that was after discounts and rebate, but still. List was $62K. All that add on stuff is pretty worthless after it's installed. Crazy as it may sound a customized vehicle is often worth less than a stock one.

So what do you think a fair price might be? Where are you guys from? I've noticed trucks in the south run a little cheaper than they do here in Indiana.

IMO you should look for a truck that not someone else built. 37" tire, 3:55 gear and chip.... Who knows what he been doing whit this setup. I wouldn't go near it

The truck was owned by one of the salesmen at the dealership. He just left and went to a dodge dealer and traded it for a dodge. I took it to a local diesel preformance shop and had the mechanics look it over. They said the truck looks like it was really well taken care of and that the work that has been done to it was done right.

I personally walk away from lifted trucks. To each his own though.

Yeah, I figured with a tuner and non factory exhaust the warranty was already gone.

When you go to trade in, dealers do not give you extra money for the aftermarket stuff. They still go by auction pricing.. Look up on NADA what that truck goes for if it were stock and that is the max I would pay.

Personally I'd walk away.. people are getting $10,000 off new trucks and I know Scott who used to be a vendor (Fowlerville Ford) on here is doing A plan on all sales.

I just built a 2016 F250 XLT CC SB 4x4 with the premium XLT package. Sticker is $56,385 and with 10k off, you can get one for around $46k...

Personally I would not own one of these without a warranty, and I'm leery still because of the water in fuel issues that can occur. But if you can afford any non-warranty repairs that come along then by all means, tune, delete, or whatever strikes your fancy. Just sayin', seems a bit high.

No one on this forum would buy the truck for that price and after reading the thread appears like a push to sell. So my advice would be to pull the trigger and buy or walk away, nothings gonna change.
