Is This a good deal???

I found a 04 2500 CC LT 4x4 w/ 42000 for 26,000. How do I know if is a LLY or LB7 sticker on the B piller 3/04? What should I be on the look out for? I will pull the trigger if this is a good truck. I pull a 5w & boat in the summer with a 08 F350 but need better MPG now, this will become my daily driver since I'm turning in my company truck. What should I expect for MPG? Oh the truck is at a ford dealer.

sounds a little pricey, i would say 22-23k..... tops, that should be a LB7, and they usually get 17-18mpg unloaded

the only problems are with the injectors, but being that is a low mileage 04 you have over a year and 160000miles left on the injector warranty, you may not like the down grade in power, but any simple tuner can give you an extra 50-60hp with no problems

If you can talk the dealer down then I'd say go for it where you buy it doesn't matter as long as you get a good deal..

As the brothers mentioned injectors could be an issue and you definitely want to talk down some. He's trying to milk that for almost every bit of retail. There is always wiggle room in used vehicles at a dealership.

you can run a programmer like the PPE xcelerator economy, or the Diablosport Predator can get an LB7 up to about 350rwhp at the highest levels

If the 8th digit is 2 it's an LLY.
