that might make some owners remember the day they handed there 7.3 keys over to the sales guy and drove off with that new 6.0. wishing they never traded keys that day.

2000 F-250 XLT, SRW, 2WD, SCLB - 101370 mi
Bought new in Nov, 2000.

1 serpentine belt around 45k - no failure, just preemptive "insurance"
CPS - recall
Sway bar mount bushing
New batteries in Aug, '97! (Should have bought new Motorcrafts after that kind of service)
New tires at 55K-getting close again
Injector seals at 100594 mi. Probably not typical(?) since I installed non-stock seals when I did Kim Lux no-cackle injectors in '01.
Water pump at 100594
Something sounds loose in the front suspension...will need attention soon
Recently achieved 21.1 HONEST mpg (full tank's worth). I drive at 2000 RPM on the interstates.

It'll probably outlive me -I'm 66

99F-350

199,000

Replaced glowplugs last week, under valve cover wiring, and gasket. 78$ per side for the harness and gasket from NAPA(It's a new part they just started carrying with wiring already hooked to gasket). 120$ for the plugs. Did it myself.

Replaced Water pump and thermostat last week, 156$

Replaced pads and front rotors twice.

Camshaft positioning sensor

Alternator.

Balljoint.

Three sets of tires since I bought it with 82,000.

Had someone else replace the water pump at around 90,000. Huge mistake, they did a crappy job.

The 6.0 list?

bought that one with 89,000 on it

2 IPC sensors
1 engine wire harness
1 FICM
1 injector
1 fuel pump
1 fan clutch
1 alternator
2 batteries

Needs a new Oil cooler as soon as I can get to it

2 new front intrical hubs
1 new tie rod (end to end)
1 set rear tires
2 sets front tires due to the tie rod problem
2 sets of rear brake pads
3 sets front brake pads
1 set rotors all around
it now has 198.000 on it

Keep in mind I bought the 96 in 2000 with 138,000 on it
I bought the 04 in 06 with 89,000 on it

then look at the list over 14 years on the 96 then the list over 4 years for the 04

I drive 102 miles round trip to work everyday

and that does not include the fact that the fender brackets for the dually fenders have rusted off on the 04 and other things and the 96 will out run the 04 any day

109k, 2 alternators, rear pinion seal. Ball joints and left front hub under warranty at 32k. Ball joints are still good. Has original batteries, soon to be replaced. Sway bar end links front and bushings. Otherwise normal upkeep.

At 105k had cracked injector cup(s). That set me back a few bucks. Still need to flush cooling system for the third time. On 2nd set of Revos.

mileage and repairs

I have 129380 on my 2003 F350. So far I had the transmission rebuilt in 2006, the transmission replaced in 2009, four cam shaft sensors, rotors replaced all around at 110000,and one speed sensor(recall) replaced. Then the general maintenance which includes oil and fuel filter replacements, two sets of brakes and one set of tires(not bad). I did find out today to not buy cheap rotors. Save up and buy nice ones because the cheap ones warped in less than 20,000 miles:dead: Also nobody ever has told me about evacuating the oil out of your HPOP. I did it last night for the first time and the oil looked bad and that is after recently changing the oil like normal.

Would it be worth going with a 2003 or older with a 7.3 over a 2003 and newer with either a 6.0 or 6.4, despite differences of 100 000 miles or more?

7.3 is the toughest engine ever built for a pickup hands down. The question is every thing around it that supports the drive trane. I hate the 2004 we had at the shop.

Alright. Was looking at a 2003 with 200 000 km on it (125K miles) that had been treated like a princess it's whole life, with zero body and frame rust, and the thing is a fully loaded XLT minus duals & clearance lights. Thing is listed for $17 500, is this reasonable? What price range should I expect to have to pay for it?

Sorry if I'm getting off topic here.
