Just purchased a 6.0, now what?
I just purchased a 2003 F-250 6.0, from a purplewave auction, which belonged to the KansasDepartmentOfTransportation. This pickup was still in service at the time of sale, it has 174,382 miles on it. I'm going to pick it up on Tuesday, hopefully all the past maintenance history on this truck will be in a box on the seat. With this in mind, what first steps should I take to make sure I can get some good use out of this truck? I've read about the scangaugeII on this site, should that be one of my first purchases? This pickup has a utility bed on it, and will be used around my farm/ ranch for my maintenance vehicle. I have two 7.3's presently in use, one with 315k, and the other with 257k, great motors, just wished this 6.0 was a 7.3. Thanks for any comments!
