It feels.... right.
A couple years ago, I purchased a 99 F250 extended cab, short bed, 4x4, 7.3 and had it for a little bit. Things came up and I had to sell the truck. Luckily, I ended up making some money on that deal!
Fast forward a couple of years and many cars/trucks, I wound up purchasing an OBS Powerstroke.
She's a 95 F350, Crew Cab, Dually. With the lovely Ford Alcoa rims. Truck spent a good portion of it's life in Texas, so the body looks great, and there is no rust. Cosmetically, the dually fiberglass fenders need to be replaced, and that's about it.
I'm not sure how many other people looked at the truck before I showed up (it had been on Craigslist for a month), but I think I know what scared away most buyers. The idle was rough; it sounded like an injector was missing. Went ahead and took it down the road, it drove nicely, minus the super sloppy steering. I was lucky enough to have my brother's friend with me, along with his roommate; they are both diesel mechanics. I talked it over with them and they gave me a green light to get the truck and we'd run over to their house and run his diagnostic scanner to see what was wrong.
Turns out the number two injector is bad. The sloppy steering is a result of a worn out tie rod bushing. Beyond that, everything else seems good to go. I'll be getting parts ordered soon, and hopefully getting the truck into top shape.
We'll see what the future holds for mods, but as for now, I'm just happy to be back into the 7.3 world!
