    Talking 2003 F250 V10

    Well,
    I added this one to the stable. Its a 2003 Lariet, one owner with 77k on the clock. Some of the do-dads are:

    Full Banks Exhaust w/headers
    Banks Chip
    Banks Air-Cleaner
    ARB rear locker w/4.30 gears
    Leer Shell
    Air Ride bags
    5 1/2" lift
    Bilsteins
    35" Toyos'
    Dual Fox steering stabilizers
    Line-X bed
    Warn hubs
    SSBC Disc brakes

    All service records since new (from the dealer), and all reciepts for all the "Do-Dads"

    Ya Ya...V10's spit plugs, done the research.....few and far between....and they drink fuel...yep....about 4-6 mpg less than an oil burner, depending who you talk to....

    The price was excellent and this thing does not have a scratch on it....very well taken care of by the PO.

    Thanks Fireman,
    It looks even better in person. The under-carraige looks new, no drip or wet spots....hell the axle stickers from the factory are still attached.

    Nice score. There have been several threads on Pirate in the towing section about v10's and everyone gives them big thumbs up for longevity and lack of problems. Yeah, they like fuel, but they are bulletproof based on everyone's experience.

    And to boot it was a CL score. PO was an LA sheriff deputy, bought a motorhome and decided to buy a jeep to pull behind it.

    Very nice purchase, Of all the V10's owners I have talked to they were allhappy with the motors.
    So they drink more fuel than most, That can be tweeked with a tuner and driving habits.
    Keep posting on the results.

    Beautiful! They do spit plugs, but don't let it keep you awake at night. Some do, some don't, and it is no huge deal to fix. I would proudly drive that thing!

    That's a good looking truck! I can't wait to get my White F250 into the body shop this summer for a little paint work to freshen it up.

    Don't sweat the plugs. Easy fix that decent Ford techs can do with thier eyes closed now (literally)

    I don't see any gears listed? Get some 4.30's or 4.56's under that thing to see what the 6.8 can really do.
