    I pick this baby up in late may, it only has 27,000 original miles:eek:, I really don't want to put my spreader in it this winter.

    I cant remember if two tone paint was even an option in 2000. It sure is a nice find, hopefully at a nice price!

    Looks real nice! That's the first XLT I've seen in that color combo.

    I'm not a big Ford man but, if I'm not mistaken two tone was mostly a Lariat option right?

    I've seen plenty of two-tone XLT's before, just not dark green/tan.

    So far very happy with the truck, rides so much better than my 99 f-250xl, I was shocked when I looked under the truck all the paint was still on the frame and rears. The oil pan is in excellent shape, in a few weeks i'm going to do due some minor upgrades, exhaust, banks turbo wheel, gauges.

    they wanted 21,800, I got it for 21,000.00 with the plow and the cap. Now I got her sounding good, banks turbo wheel, 4in diamond eye dual exhaust.

    No offense, but that seems a little much for something 14 years old. Even if it is in perfect shape. I did a KBB price thing on a 2000 XLT, diesel, with plow, etc. and in excellent condition it said 14,600 or so. Still a great find nonetheless.

    yeah I feel the same way, but my other f-250 was becoming a money pit to say the least, nothing wrong with the new fords but I don't need another house payment lol

    21k on a tried and true motor over 50k on a new one, with a plow, less than 30k miles, if he puts 6500 into upgrades and a sander he is still doing fine, excellent find my friend.

    KBB/NADA isn't a good pricing source for the 7.3 trucks weather it's a Superduty or an OBS. Guys will pay good money for them because they are proven and generally outlast the truck they are mounted in. If you could get a 7.3 with a 5R110 or 6R140 trans you'd have something there. The 4R100's aren't bad, they are just kinda clueless sometimes and the wide gear spacing makes them annoying to tow heavy with.

    Probably too late, but BD, RiffRaff, and Dieselsite (Wicked Wheel 2) have all come out with new/better billet wheels that cure surge and increase spool up - the old Banks/Wicked Wheels, etc were just factory Early 99 Compressor wheels that really didn't do anything in terms of performance but sounded cool and helped with surge if you tuned it.

    Head over to Powerstrokenation or Powerstrokearmy for some good info on mods - light or heavy. I'm amazed at how different my truck is with even the smallest tune on my chip - really gives it a lot more low end torque.

    These 7.3's really are nice motors.
