Some info on it its a 1999 F250 XLT, 2wd, ext cab, long bed, 7.3, 6 spd, it has 130,000 Miles (should have quite a bit of life left to it) white on blue cloth, aluminum wheels, tinted glass, oil sprayed yearly since new.. this is the truck I was telling some of you about last week.I knew I was getting it but was still in negotiations with dealer..


Monday they have to do the lower ball joints for the safety (I bought the uppers they are putting them in for free since they will have the thing appart)NAPA lifetime warranty

Tuesday it goes in for allignement

Wednesday they are replacing the valve cover gaskets, the glow plugs arent working they said the wireing is burnt to them...said it happens on these trucks..

So I'll have it Wednesday if they get it cleaned and transfered or Thursday

you take care of her, she'll always get you home.

if you see a light at the end of the tunnel, it's probably just a photon torpedo

Sweet, there is nothing like getting a new to you powerstroke. I have done it twice and was on cloud nine both times.

Count me in that boat too!

I'm going up tomorrow to look at a 2001 F250 4x4. It's got a little over 200K but is owned by a Ford diesel mechanic who said he kept it maintained well.

He just bought a 2005 from a guy that (sadly) was about to have it repo'd. He got a steal on it, so he's selling this one.

Been spending some time looking around, and I love it site! I hope to be a PSD owner within the next 24 hours!
