    I'd take the 02. Even though she has a bit more miles on it, she looks less molested. That 2k was sending up a couple warning bells in my head. Get the VIN and do an OASIS report to see the background history of all warranty work done at the dealer. You can find more about the OASIS reports at ford-trucks.com.

    just wondering why did the 2000 raise a red flag? the 2002 had an oil pump put in according to carfax lol.

    Personally i would go with the 00. I like the white and you can always upgrade the headlights to the newer style. But i do like the mileage on the 02 and the extra 2 years did ad a few different things.

    But if it was me i would keep looking. The 02 is only worth $14.5k Both of them are overpriced. Unless you can get them to take thousands off the price i would not buy either. I picked up a 03 f350 7.3l dually 3 months ago with 117k on it for only $15k

    Sorry but i would keep looking for a better price, no reason to pay a premium.

    All of the powerstroke 7.3's are being listed for thouasands over BB value..... I guess they are in high enough demand.
