New to the Forum intro, and a quick question
Hey guys, just joined the forum, Im born and raised in small town Texas, but I ended up in Connecitcut chasing my dream to become a Career Firefighter. Ive owned a few cool cars in my day, pintos, rx7s, but never a diesel. Ive helped my buddy build up his cummins pretty nice, and rebuilt a few old John deer diesels with him, so ive picked up a few things. Ive built my Jeep wrangler up, and im at the point now I want to trailer it around, so I can go all out on the trails and not have to worry about getting it back home.
So that leads me into the need of a good diesel truck to pull my jeep around, Im a ford man, and I just love the look of an old style fords.
My problem is, all the old 7.3's in the North are rusted out, so Im hoping to travel down to Texas & Lousiana in the next couple of months to visit my parents, and hopefully buy a truck and then drive it back up North. Hopefully it will go as smooth as it looks on paper, but I think we all know how life really goes.. lol
I also got a buddy who wants a 7.3, so the plan is for me to go down scout out the area, maybe buy a truck, then if it works smooth, we will fly down again and he will buy one, then we convoy back together. I understand there is a lot of logistics and luck involved in this plan.. trust me I know, but hopefully I will get lucky...
So my real goal here is to give a little background on myself, and ask the question of am I crazy for trying to pull this off?
