Whatever you do, don't put a non-black CPS in a 7.3/6 speed, esp. if it's the 275hp version.

You will get a SES light, and the idiots will recommend you replace an injector.... That is not bad; the stupid recall replacement CPS is the problem.

I love my 99 gasser 5speed
Totally different animal.. but the same body.


Well the guy flaked out, Couldnt meet today, talked to him on the phone and there are appearantly many issues with this truck that he did not tell me about. made the mistake of looking at a crew cab and the wife really likes it. Hell I do too. But I have been looking for quite some time adn cant find one for the money i want to spend without going well over the $10k I want to spend. Considering a 5.4 gasser. My trailer is right at 7k when its at its max. Not sure I can justify the extra expense of the diesel. hell I barley drive 3k a year in my truck. It usually sets out back under the shade tree by the shop and collects dust. I think I will go look at one tomorrow and go from there.

I have driven a few empty f350 crews with the 5.4, and I would NOT want to try it with a 7k trailer behind it. My buddy has an f250 4x4 with a 5.4 and he hauled a small empty goose horse trailer to Wyoming and back and reported it was slow on hills and never exceeded 8 mpg. If it's gonna get shit fuel mileage, it better have a shitload of power, otherwise it isn't worth it.

What kind of mileage can I expect out of a 7.3 crew cab with an auto. I found a great deal on a 95 cc LWB 4x4 , only downfall is its an auto.
