Parts & more for my 97

What's going on guys? Well I bought 97 f250 a couple months ago and I love it! I have installed A s&b intake, diamond eye stainless straight turbo back, bed box, and Some 265 mud tires. I was hoping you guys could help me with a web page that has nice smoked lights, tail lights, cab lights? Also I'd like some more power but not sure where to start with supporting mods/ performance? Thanks

Welcome to the org, I would check eBay for lighting, look for bronco stuff, makes it easy, cab lights look into the recon smoked dodge lights or make your own Kause there isn't anything for the ford 97 and under, and good mods would be some custom tunes and gauges, look into php, tw, swamps, and several other great tuners out there, good luck with your new to you truck

You will be fine adding a tune to your stock tranny and brakes. The highest tune adds somewhere in the 140 hp range and your stock stuff should handle the power just fine (at least mine has).

Yes, gauges are important. Especially if you don't swap out your stock turbo down pipe. There is a huge restriction there that can drive EGTs high with some tunes.

Definitely grab some gauges and some sort of 6 position chip. Well worth the money and the gauges will help you keep an eye on things. As far as the chip, there are tons of different tuners out there like 351fifty said. I have tyrant tunes and im very happy with them. You might also keep an eye out in the classifieds for people selling different headlights and stuff too. They might be used but its a little easier on the wallet.
