new guy in town

Hey everyone, I'm new to the forum I just signed a purchase and sales agreement on a truck and I must say I'm extremely excited to pick it up Tuesday. 96 psd cclb hence the username 193k XLT model everything works on the truck pw, pl, ac, cruise control, 4x4 etc. But it's fairly rusty both front fenders wheel arches tailgate and the inner door bottoms. But I have to say given the condition of the paint and interior this truck was very well cared for. I had posted a link to the truck but I don't want someone stealing it out from under me. Lol all said and done I'm paying $4250 out the door.



From what I've been told it is a one owner truck which has been very well cared for and it has never plowed. seeing as I'm new to PSD's what maintenance should I check and/or complete on the truck when I get it home?

If the body rust is that bad, look for rust elsewhere. Look at the rear fuel tank, where it sits on the skid plates. Also look at the radiator support, and the cab corners.

Thanks for the info guys. I checked the floors, cab corners and frame they're all solid as is the oil pan. I'm from Massachusetts so I have to think that the former owner must not have washed it much in the winter. Wait'll you see the pictures, the interior is mint. The rust doesn't bother me much though new fenders bolt on, I should be able to save the door bottoms and my 96 f250 sclb 5.8 has rusty floor, inner door bottoms, cab corners and one wheel arch. I already have a spare tailgate that is solid where the new one is rusted so I'll graft that piece in. There was fuel in both tanks too so I think that they're both probably good otherwise he probably wouldn't have used it. Thankfully I have a buddy building a PSD bronco and since he put the 33 gallon bronco tank in there he has a good 19 gal rear tank sitting in his driveway. I also just remembered it has two newer rear shackle hangers.

I've been looking at getting gauges for the truck and an intake since I've read that the stock air box leaks. Does somebody have a good gauge kit for these trucks? What road should I go with the intake, custom?

I know some of you NON-Snow/Salt states DON'T GET IT, but there is NOTHING you can do short of NOT DRIVING the vehicle to stop rust from happening. It's just the reality of living in a rust area.

OP, Welcome to the .ORG!

Ohh I get it, just saying, look at Garrett's truck for example, he washes continually, por 15's the frame monthly, still has a little rust and just replaced the tank because of it. But his body is generally rust free. OP look at cptrucks.com I got my gauge pod and gauges from him all automated and match the factory cluster, pod matches the interior too, call and ask for paul
