My first psd



Hey everyone. I've been out of the diesel game for a few years. I've had 2 cummins and my dad had two powerstrokes. I've always live the obs style and with a growing family I got the go ahead to get one. And its a duesie. It's just about exactly what I've been looking for. After a month of severe searches this truck fell into my lap. It's a 1997. 57,000 original miles. Always garage kept and never seen snow. It's an eclipse conversion. Never had a goose or a 5th. Actually. Hardly ever had anything in the bed. I'll post a pic of that and some interior pics. I'll be going to pick it up this weekend. So far it's sight unseen but its a friend of a friend and everything seems to be legit. I've read up on doing the blowby check and some other things. Anything else I should look for ?

Now that is a beautiful truck, how much are you picking it up for if ya don't mind me asking? Under 20k and it's a steal, that kind of mileage on eBay they go for stupid amounts of cash

-Kris-
2011 f150 ecoboost 4x4 323/452 on php dyno 11/16/13
1995 CCLB DRW 324K
2001 CCLB DRW 319K
Dp tuner infinity, exhaust, intake, chipped, tricked, and wrecked

Hope its ok???? Pics make the thread!! Nice looking truck, and 10k? You stole that thing, trucks with 3 times the mileage go for that.

95 f250 powerstroke, zf5 with solid flywheel conversion, 3 inch downpipe to four inch diamond eye stainless steel exhaust, riffraff 6637 intake, pyro and boost gauges, and more to come
