Whats the First thing you did with your PSD???

I was wondering how many of you were also told you dont need a PSD??? And after you got it you were glad you did!!! I know I was very content with my Purchase even tho a bunch of people were telling me I didnt need a truck or even a PSD but Im sure glad I did because a month after buying my truck I found a classic car that I had to have and the truck pulled it flawless!! And now I have orders to go to campbell and i know I can pull a good size car hauler with a 4000lb beast on it with no probleams and still be able to do more!!! What was the first thing you ever did with your PSD after you got it?? and here is some pictures of the car getting loaded on the trailer!! I know its a GM but they dont make them like this anymore!!!




1964 Riviera (stock wouldn't have it NE other way)
1983 Toyota pickup (Diesel Conversion In Future) SOLD and Just got it back!!!
2002 F-250 W/ 4inch Turbo back exhaust and K&N air filter SOLD
2005 EX stock 6.0PSD

Nice buy. I'd save up and get some gauges and a custom chip and you will be able to pull that car WAAAY better.

I went straight to Absolute Rental and got a skid steer for the weekend. They asked if I needed it delivered and I told 'um if that PSD in the lot won't pull it I will sell it for scrap! I had a lot of people tell me I was nuts to buy a diesel.

I'm trying to remember now, but IIRC the first mod that went on the truck was the 6637 filter, followed shortly by Isspro 3 gauge setup then 4" exhaust.

1st thing I did was get rid of the junk stock air filter then changed the oil and fuel filters. Then I bought a rough country 6" lift with 36" tires...not being completely satisfied with the lift, I raised the rear end some and put 37" tires underneath. Its my daily driver and hauls the boat to the lake every weekend.

2004 F250 XLT 6" lift, 37" tires, zoodad, T6,
edge cs, k&n, revx, warn lockers, rhino bars
future: coolant filter, headstuds, bluespring, 4" turboback, tires..dam these tires

Had several people tell me I should wait to buy mine... at least until the economy bounced back (I'd still be waiting). After selling my '94 tho, I was ready for a newer truck. 2 weeks after I found and bought my '99 F250 my dad sent me to Pensylvania to pick up some wheels for my sister's Mustang. I've now owned it for 4 months and have clocked 14,xxx miles on it! Now it has Dick Cepek rims on 33x12.5 Mud Grapplers ($500 for the set, couldn't pass that deal!) and tube steps. Gonna work on economy and towing upgrades next.

The first thing I did with my PSD was make the Sales managers eyes pop out of his head when I handed him a stack of cash, and said, "We dont need that form, just a bill of sale will do." The first thing I DID with my PSD was haul a loaded three horse slant from Santa Ynez to Kettleman City and back.

"Blizzard" The big white bio-burning 03 7.3. 6637, straight piped stock exhaust, and a "New" secret blend of Haul asBLEEPsing mods and upgrades. Suffice to say, its not the fastest, but it quite possibly is one of the quickest.
