I personally would trade the 04 6.0 2wd for the 99 7.3 4X4.

I'd REALLY try and get a straight trade.. but I certainly would pay 500, or even a grand for the trade.

A 7.3 4X4 is a great truck.

That does not sound like a good purchase.
4x4 needs work, unknown cost, (diff?) beat up, seats torn, nearly 300,000 miles on everything but the motor with questionable rebuild.. no go.

Demand a new engine. Contact Ford customer service.

On the other hand, the 7.3 wont drop valves and probably wont ever need to be retired, so.. you're good there. :)
