NOOB Powerstroke Owner w/pics and questions.

Hello,

I sold my TDI VW to get my 2001 F250 powerstroke. Last fall, we upgraded to a 26 cabin cruiser style boat on a triple axle trailer. I did use my company truck (2001 Chevy 2500 w/6.0 gasser 2wd) to pull it and it did fine for the most part. However, the 2wd wasn't so good for coming out of the launches with a 9000lb load behind it. Traction was a hughe issue.

I just picked up this truck and have already learned a few things along the way... like the UNBELIEVABLE re-sale value. Anyway, I wanted as plain as possible because I'm really only going to drive this when towing in the summer or when winter gets a LOT of snow on the ground.

Here it is...






It looks like somebody added the wheel well covers to hide some rust. The underside/frame has more rust than I'm used to on a 9 year old truck but not too to bad. The Bed had some HEAVY loads in it in the past a seen by depressions in the floor of the bed.

The good is that it only has 128K on the clock. So, tell me what I need to know.

the flares also could have been from a lift and big tires and they just put it back to stock before selling it

4 things you need after regular maintance stuff, gauges- to keep an eye on temps a plus since ur pulling, Full exhaust- lowers egts, little more power, and better sound, DIY 6637 Intake- cheap, more power, and better filtration, chip/tuner- more power, better mpg, and more fun... I would suggest DP with Jodies tunes, TW or Swamps tunes are good too
