Big plus to know it was on a long trip at delivery, any issues on said trip will be sellers issue. Did you pay yet?

Very cool. Hopefully the fact they're willing to drive it to you is a vote of confidence as to its mechanical condition. That 7.3 should move a 5-window down the road just fine! (Ours is 6 w/ same power-plant and we are not lacking in the least).

I love my triple 4e... esp since I gave it some more Punch , they are road trip warriors and parts are pretty much everywhere for them still..

Bringing the bus home for the first time was quite the adventure even though it was only 15 miles away. I'm glad I did it.
