That is nicely equipped. Is the rear storage box on the bumper intended to hold a generator (seeing the louvers)?

Also has a rear underfloor storage box.

There’s no sign that it had a generator in that box, and it doesn’t look like that was the intention. However, I’m sure it’s not too hard to make happen!

Even with the 6.0 that seems like a great rig worth purchasing.

DITTO!
Very nice but you would be up around $75,000.00 + to bullet proof it motor wise! You gotta weigh in how much it would be to have a shell converted! A 6.0 shell is roughly $10-$14K, 7.3 is $20-$25k low miles! If you go bare minimum Sportmobile conversion $40-$50K ballpark? Then you still have to bullet proof it! So if it is immaculate as the seller says then yeah but I would not hammer down on it till I restuded the heads and so on!

Head gaskets aren't usually an issue on the 6.0L van motors. The pickups, that's a different story.

So it is a different 6.0 in the pickup than the van? That would be ground breaking news to me! Maybe the motor failures in vans are not as heard of as the pickups since there is fewer on the road making the percentage of stories lower! I am sure there is no difference in motors! If there are so many reports about pickups that is enough for me to stay clear of all 6.0. They could be like "magic grits"! (My Cousin Vinnie movie quote)

Ford detunes the 6.0 engines in the vans, reducing the turbo boost/HP thus less stress on the engine.
