hey buddy's, i just got my first 2005 f250 FX4 6.0L. Want to add custom upgrades and would like to have some guides, and what i should do or best for my truck.
Heres a little about my truck. I currently have 98,000 miles, prelifted from ford, about 8 inch with 37's toyo on 20. I get poor gas mileages, on highway 8.3 mpg, on freeway 10.4 mpg (average). how i figure that out? i pump full tank reset the mileage and drive till whenever gas go out and pump again and see how much gallon i had pumped and how many miles i had put on. For example 219 miles/ 28 gallons will give me the mpg. the other thing is that i have fluid leaking but its not diesel, and other bad thing is the steering has a play in it (was thinking power steering fluid leaking?) but then again its not red fluid? please help...
Here are the upgrades i bought so far...
Rize 12" lift kit
axle w/4.56 gears and w/arb lockers
22 xd diesel on 40's toyo
