Purchasing a used diesel truck Posted on 1/8/2018 at 09:09:52 PM by Jame Gumb
I need advice on purchasing a used diesel truck. My credit union will let me finance anything under 125,000 miles. My budget isnít that high, as I have a decent amount of negative equity.
I prefer the Fords, but feel like I need aftermarket mods to reduce the chances of hefty repairs (EGR delete, studded head bolts, bulletproofing). Iíve been looking at a 2006 F-250 with 92k that has been bulletproofed.
There is a 2005 Silverado 2500 HD with only 79k miles, but Iíve heard mixed reviews on the 6.6 Duramax and Allison tranny.
Iím basically looking for something beefy without having to put a lot of money into it, as well as something that will last the entire finance term. I not going off-road, just cruising.
Is this unreasonable? Any tips? Replies:
