2001 Ford F-350 Super Duty 4dr Crew Cab XLT 2WD LB (5.4L 8cyl 5M)
Bought the truck with 76K on it. Dealer was fair, paid $19,500. The 7.3L Diesel gets 16 in town and 18 on hwy. Put new tires on it and have had no problems as yet. Pulls a 17 ft bass boat like it isn't there. Regular oil changes that I do myself for about 50 bucks. Yep, parking is a pain but it's worth it. Plan to keep the truck till the wheels fall off. If you want a truck that will haul a lot of stuff and 6 people comfortably the 1998 to 2002 F350 7.3L is good buy if you shop carefully. I plan to later install a chip, cold air intake, and 4.5 inch exhaust. That should help with better fuel mileage. Other than that I'll leave it stock. It's my first diesel and I won't go back to a gas engine!
The interior room is great. Truck handles well even with Off Road Suspension Package.
Larger standard exhaust, from 3.5" to 4.5". Optional cold air intake.
