Hey guys, just wanted to introduce myself here.
I recently picked up my first OBS Powerstroke- It's my fourth Ford truck overall. I've had a '97 F150, '99 Extra cab shortbed SuperDuty, '86 Reg cab shortbed F150, and now my new to me '96 Reg cab Long bed F250.
1996 F250 Powerstroke
I do believe this is the most stock truck I've ever seen
It's a one-owner vehicle, the guy did all the maintenance work on it, but as far as I can tell he left it completely stock. No rust, the interior is in MINT shape, even still has the stock radio (no tape player no nothing)
First impressions? Very happy so far, good to be back in a diesel 7.3 I really liked my old superduty, but I made the mistake at that time of getting a manual trans. All my vehicles to that point had been manual so I thought I wanted one, got it, hated it, sold it. So this time around I got the auto and I couldn't be happier. pretty bouncy ride, but otherwise it was just what I was looking for, a super simple but capable truck. Very happy with the miles as well. I got it for $10,500 from a dealer, which might have been too much, but really I'm happy with that price.
Plans for the truck are simple, TW tunes, exhaust, intake and guages. Nothing special just make it more peppy. After that I might lift it a bit and put on some 35's. Nothing in stone yet, just enjoying the truck right now.
Anyway, like I said, just saying hello and thanks in advance for all the good info on this site!
