back to a 7.3 what to do now?
I've been off the ORG for about 6mo i had to dump my 6.0 it cost me $10000 so far in repairs and i was still loosing coolant, not shifting right, and shimmied. now I'm back to a 7.3 1997 F250 ext cab only 140k on it. its the one my uncle bought when i bought his reg cab 7.3 f250 1997 from him but this one needs more tlc. tranny is leaking into the t-case, front fuel tank leaks, frmae needs patched, needs bed and fenders and rockers and cab corners i inted to fix all this and change it to the smaller mirrors and replace the front seat to one with the fold down armrest. the good is it already has my dp tuner with 9 settings, my idm with mod. ( i put them in this truck for him for free before i traded my old 7.3 in)what else do you guys think i should do. and fyi i only paid $1500 for it
. in the pictures the tan and white one is my old one the grren one is the one i got now. any ideas where to go with it as far as paint, replacing the bed or steel bed? level/lift? stacks? it already has a 3" straight pipe.
no truck anymore. maybe next year.

2 most import things to keep with you, Condoms and a handgun, never know when you'll be out and need protection.
