Finally I bought one.

That's right after a few months of searching and calling on trucks that were sold 2 days ago..lol I bought a 2000 red crew cab 4wd. I'll get pics up soon.. Had to drive 6 hours to get it, but dang this thing is really freaking clean. Interior is spotless, its got a few scratches on the body but nothing real noticeable. It already has a Air Raid intake and a spray in bed liner. Since we took I-75 thru Georgia, we stopped at Summit Racing on the way home..and I got a triple gauge pod with tranny temp, boost and EGT gauges. Next thing will be exhaust I guess.

00 F-250 PSD 4WD CCSB - Airraid Intake/Catback/SCTLivewire/8.5" ProComp lift w/37-13.50's on MB 20"x9"s.

96 Dakota Sport - 360 .030 over/8.2 Comp Ross pistons/Eagle Rods/Lightended Crank/Vortech S-trim w/12# pulley/Aeromotive Fuel Setup/50# injs./ Haltech EMS/TKO600 coming soon (and a lot more stuff I don't have room to list)

Congrats on the new truck. Didn't even get it home and your already buying mods. That is about as bad as me. When I bought my new quad I was not even home back from my deployment. Heck I didn't even buy the thing yet. But I already ordered performance parts for it. Again congrats on the new truck.

Thanks guys..It drove really good, I was surprised at how good the ride is for a truck of its size. It has a 25 gal tank, I've used up 3/4's of that so far and gone about 320 miles..I think that's around 17 mpg..not bad considering most of that was doing 75-80 on the hiway.

Just a side note your tank is probobly closer to 30-32 gallons. If I let it get too low and its almost empty which I know is a bad thing the pump will shut off at 25 gallons for me, but I have gotten 31 gallons in my tank by filling it to the top. In other words your tank probobly isnt full at 25 gallons. Its a pain, but if you feather the pump you can probobly get another 4-5 gallons in your truck.

Ha yea, been informed of that already. I was told that the diesel foams more, so you have to feather the pump.
