Watch out for those 7.3 Powerstroke motors. Damn things have a bad habit of blowing out High Pressure Oil Pump Seals and the fuel delivery system seems to go out if you cross to many railroad tracks. My truck has been in the shop three times in 4 months. One more trip to the shop and I am going to a Chevy. Other than the fact it has left me stuck on the road three times it is a good truck.
Pulls good. Nice feel of the truck/trailer while driving. Very stable. Great Brakes.
Wiring, reliable fuel system, a high pressure oil pump that won't blow the seals out of it, valve covers that don't leak, a transmission that doesn't shift like mush
