$8K is too steep for an 02 with that many miles, especially needing injectors. No way its worth that. If it is, the diesel market is waaay too high in your area.

What don't you like about it? With an infant and talks of putting another one in the oven I've been contemplating getting rid of my EC LLY and getting one. I tow a 22' bay boat about 80 miles almost every weekend. I like having the LLY as over kill it's nice to just set the cruise and have drama free towing but if the Eco can do 80% as good I'd be happy with it. We have some newer F150s at work with the 5.0 and they drive damn nice.

I just got a 2017 f150 ecoboost 2.7 crew cab. I am kinda impressed with the fuel mileage and the back seats are huge! I haven't towed with it yet but i still have my lbz so im not to worried.

My dads got a 15 with the 3.5 eco and it tows his 21ft center console fine. Itís a real nice truck and I like all the interior room.

No offense taken James lol but the eco is really a nice truck. Just packing the power and economy my lb7 got. I don’t really regret getting rid of that truck and the cab space is great. Just don’t like getting 18mpg in the highway and 15 City and 13 towing a four wheeler. The lack of power compared to my duramax would be different if it got the same mileage. But doesn’t. And I miss the punch of the Diesel. My dad likes the ford and the only reason I considered the dodge was because it’d help him out. Don’t get me wrong I like the ford it’s just not my thing. I tried the gasser life. I do not like the gasser life. I guess I’ll be keeping my eye open for an LLY-lmm gmc ccsb.

And Mitch that’s honestly about right for here. Truck is really nice and not rusty. But I’m gonna pass either way. With good injectors someone would ask 11-13k here. Can’t fond a 4x4 duramax especially not a crew cab for much less. Heck there’s an 01 ccsb Chevy with 350k for around 10 grand on Craigslist.

I tow a 30’ enclosed snowmobile trailer loaded weighs around 5k pounds with my eco boost and it does it decent. I wouldn’t be worried about a boat. Only concern I have is cross wind and winter weather conditions. I’d be more comfortable in a heavier truck.

Why do all EcoBoost Fords smell like rotten eggs?

Doesn’t matter if it’s an Escape or SHO Taurus. The exhaust is nauseating when any decent amount of throttle is applied. I hate being behind one going up a hill and then seeing that puff of grayish smoke come out. I immediately put my windows down so the smell doesn’t get trapped. Unburned diesel smells like perfume compared to an EcoBoost.

What's your budget for another truck?

I saw the truck you posted yesterday. Iím really looking for a GMC because I donít much care for the Cat eye Chevrolets. Thatís a heck of a deal for LBZ for sure. Iím not sure what my budget is yet because I need to figure out whatís going to happen to this Ford first. I just looked at my buddies 02 GMC that I talked about earlier. Itís a really nice truck itís fully loaded. The local at light is on because a hose was rotted and blew off. And it needs injectors. Both of those things make me very nervous but for my area 8000 is about the right price for that truck. I know that sad to say but I canít find anything sub $10,000 that doesnít need a crap ton of work. I donít know whether Iím gonna pass on it or not. Most likely I am because I want something LLY or newer. Really would love to have a black LLY or LMM crew cab short bed

Your LB7 must of got some good mileage. That's about the MPG I'm getting out of my LLY and diesels is about 50 cents more a gallon around here.

My lb7 would average around 18. 16 or 17 city and sometimes over 20 highways and had 500 horses whenever I wanted. Plus. Its so different. I’m so used to the power curve of a diesel.

The power curve of my gasser work truck took me 2 years to get use to over my diesel. I still don't care for it, but it's way cheaper to drive.
