Finally got one

Finally got a Powerstroke, has pretty high miles, 218,8xx the original owner bought it new in 97 and kept all of the service records in a little notebook, in 7 days he put almost 4800 miles on the truck, and in a year about 35k if i remember right, the book says, "banks p.p. installed" at around 62k miles, every time the guy put fuel in it he put down the miles and gallons and did the MPG's for most of them, got around 18-20 most of the time... payed 10k for the whole package, plow (in rough shape but new motor) and barely used 8' pro caster sander the truck is in amazing condition, has some usual rust spots here/there just from being driven...

thanks, long story about the cap, it was better than carrying it 100 miles on a trailer through sand/salt mix... the sander needs some motor work, new eletric clutch and the wiring put back together, next year the sander's going in my dumptruck... for us 218k is ALOT of miles up here we're lucky to get 120-140k before the car/truck is rotted out, unless it has alot of highway miles... anybody know exactly what came with a "Banks Power Pack" in say 98? basically the same as some of the kits now? got a big intercooler, we think an exhaust, different turbo, and of course the pillar guages
