I have owned a 2001 F250,CC, SB, 4x4, 7.3, auto since new. 133,000 trouble free miles on the engine. I did rebuild the tranny and, and have done Unit Bearings and Ball Joints


It is my daily driver. I had a Lance Camper and now have an Artic Fox that weighs about 3,100 pounds. I also occasionally tow a flat bed with Jeep behind the camper. I have air bags and camper springs.


My concern is stopping. New Trucks have much better brakes, trannies and exhaust brakes. Not to mention being quieter and new. I have recently replaced the door lock actuators, and a window rail.


Is it worth replacing with a new truck?? Thanks

After driving Chevy, Ford and Dodge diesels today, I will keep my paid for 7.3. When literally every sales man you talk to wants to buy your old truck it says something. Besides being a little louder, my truck drove as well as any of them. I was lucky to by a truck 16 years ago that has been great, and held great value. Yes braking now better, but I have dealt with that for 16 years without a scratch
