I'm hopefully picking up an 03 7.3 psd e350 on Saturday. Anything I should know or watch for before buying? I have a good idea of where the problem rust is now after my bad experience with my e250, this one however is much cleaner. Any must do upgrades? I was just planning a tow hitch, diamond eye exhaust and whatever it takes for general maintenance to keep it reliable. Then hopefully over the summer a ujoint off-road 4x4 conversion, since my e250 was a flop, I'm taking this as a chance at redemption, with a van i really want instead of one that's just good enough.

might be a bit late but if it has the rubber floor in the back, take a Phillips screw driver and remove the rear trim plate at the back doors and look underneath it . the 3rd brake lights like to leak and it soaks in under the mat and spreads.
