A must Tool if you're working on your Truck.

By no means am i a Mechanic, But theres so much we can do to our Trucks if we have the right Publications.

One very financially and Smart Investment is all the Ford Factory Service Manuals. I saved Thousands by doing the work on our Truck myself. THE BEST $170 I've Spent.





I used my son's first Laptop, I pulled it out of our Garage Sale Crap, An to my surprise it still worked




"""I kid You Not""", I was quoted around $5 grand by a Bullet Proof Diesel authorized shop here in Vegas to do the Ext. Oil Cooler and EGR Delete If you can Read you can do so must to your Truck

Plus the PRIDE factor of doing it yourself.

Yup. Good buy!

The shop manual, wiring diagram, and the AE is some of the best money you can spend on one of these if you're inclined to do your own work.

When I ordered mine, I didn't realize the shop manual didn't have the service info on the 6.0 itself. That's next on my list.

Helm FTW!

I have it on the cd, but I later found the factory service manuals in print off Ebay. They look like encyclopedias but I have the same ones the dealers/fleet owners have. I'd also add the topside creeper to the list. It even came in handy on changing the back plugs on my Lightning.

If you go to the Ford Dealership they'll tell you to order it on line at: helminc.com , They supply most if not all of the Pub. in the Auto Industry.

That would be a great addition to my tool box! I agree that a topside creeper is useful on many vehicles.
