    Looking at buying my first 7.3 powerstroke I've owned Cummins and idis before. It's a 1995 f250 4x4 auto with 170,000 on it extended cab. Talked the guy down to 2800 for it. It will need tires next year and a new ignition. Trans was replaced 50k ago with paper work and it had new HPOP installed. Its bone stock even the exhaust on it. Think it would be a bad deal? It says it books for around 6k.

    I really didn't care for the auto in my '97 E350 PSD vs the '95 F350 PSD 5spd. I know a lot of that is personal preference. Speed control (downhill) is a big asset with a manual.

    All my current diesel are now 12v cummins. The ones I drive are manual.

    The E4OD isn't all that bad if you service it regularly and make sure it stays cool (gauges). Whatever you do, do not get trans flushed! fluid and filter with a bottle of dr tranny's shudder fix has kept my E4OD in my 97 going for 205k miles

    The trade-off between the forever transmission (manual) and an automatic is that the automatic doesn't loose boost during a shift compared to the manual.

    Depending on how you’re shifting ;)

    Sounds like a half decent deal. I payed $3000 for my original F250 4x4. The average going price around here is $6-8000. I got a family deal on mine.

    I wonder if the zf can handle a “no lift shift”? Lol

    To the op, that’s a good deal, if it was a 5 speed I’d be on a road trip to fight you for it lol
