My reasoning for my need/want is in the post you quoted. I did look at the truck you have, or at least ones specced similarly. I think it’s a fantastic package, and likely perfect for most folks. I’m really interested to see what people do with the engine in hot rods and the like, the engine has insane amounts of potential. The problem is that I’m trying to stick to a budget, and get something reasonably close to what my truck is valued. I have some cash to put on top, but not 2020+ Ford super duty money. I’m trying to keep things between $25-38k, and the cheapest 4x4 Ford with a 7.3 gasser I could find was $46k.
Oh I didn’t catch the F150 part. With a 7.3 power stroke swapped in there it likely has a bent frame and some serious stress fractures in its future, if not already. Unless they did some serious reinforcement and frame boxing.
research the Nissan Titan with the Cummins. My buddy is wanting a gas vehicle since he’s tired of paying for diesel. He may give you a good deal.
