shopping around

Hey guys, been a while since Ive been on here. I'm shopping around for a diesel now and need your insights. Looking at 6.0s and 7.3 4x4s what are things to look out for with either motor?

Haha here ya go Steve:

'03 F250 7.3l Lariat Crew Cab Short bed 208k miles.



Gonna need to swap those ugly rims/tires and mirrors but so far I like it. Still need to iron out a few kinks. Cruise control wasn't working but that's already fixed, and i already replaced the steering stabilizer.

Thanks Steve! The interior is in pretty good shape but there are still some things to fix before it can take over the daily driver duties from my 63.

The new truck may even take over for my dads flatbed when we tow the toy hauler.
