    Looking at a 2001 F250 xlt ext cab, 7.3l mint condition, only 35,000 miles, guy wants $26,000.00 , I think he asking a tad much, just looking for some input on what you guys think.

    Although the 7.3's really hold there value well… Thats seems a bit on the STEEP side, even with only 35K on the dash…. Has he done some major mods 2 this truck.. or something to value it at $26K…??

    I would say thats a bit high.... consider that you can probably find something with only a 110k (still low miles) for like 14k or so.....

    I would probably try to get it for like 18k.. 19k... 20k? Those are some seriously low miles. If it was just some old guy that just used it to run to the grocery store and post office that is the previous owner then I'm sure it would be a great buy. But thats still a lot of money. Think, that truck is 13 years old already....

    Crack smoker. It's an XLT and not even a crew cab. 35k May as we'll be 135k, wouldn't make a difference. It's a 13yr old truck. Your problems aren't going to come from mileage they're going to come from age. For $26k you can get some damn nice used trucks with way more amenities than what that truck has. I have had several 7.3s and while I appreciate their following, they can't compare to modern diesels. Emissions suck sure, but the 7.3 had its fair share of problems too but with a lot less torque and hp also. If you have $26k to spend on a mostly cash sale (cause the bank isn't going to loan you near that amount for that truck) look at what you can get 2011 and newer. You might be surprised what you can step into a new 6.7 for and it will run circles around a 7.3.

    For that price you could get a regular cab F350 in the '11 or '12 variety with the 6.2 gasser. That new gasser is about equal in power to that old 7.3.

    Thanks for the replies, that's what I was thinking, I think sometimes these guys with these 7.3's think they are sitting on a pile of gold. I probably going to offer him around $15,000 and if he doesn't take it he can pound sand.

    Buy something newer.

    That truck is too old and it's obviously been sitting.

    I guarantee he won't take 15. Some people are just stupid

    Good advice, if you do not mind being Found On the Road Dead.

    Truck will have issues because it is 13 years old.

    I'm not really surprised it's Lenz that has it listed with that ridiculous price, they do that all the time. I can promise they won't take $15K, I'm sure they paid more than that for it, and they're not afraid to let vehicles sit on their lot for years. I bought one truck from them, and I can tell you I'd never make that mistake again............

    I am starting to get that feeling, salesman was really an ass, didn't even want to dicker on the price, acting like I was trying to buy a brand new truck.

    Go to the bbb and read some of the reviews. the arrogance from the 2 bros is astonishing, which is what I ran into when I bought from them.

    Complaint dot com is another good one.
