My new rig!!!

Hey guys, heres the new company vehicle!!

Thanks to all the advice I received from some of you the choice ended up being easy and I chose the ford over a dodge and a chev.

Anyways enough talk from me, here she is.

BTW any comments on what mods or maintnance I should do first would be appreciated. I'm definately new to the whole diesel scene.

Great looking truck man. Gotta love some training wheels. I would change all the fluids just to make sure they are good to go. Filters go with that too. Then, as far as moding it, Guages, exhaust, intake, Chip. In that order. Thats the basics, there is much more. So if you have a question, just ask.

Like Logan said, I would change all the fluids & filters just to make sure they are good to go. Looks like a very clean good looking truck. If you are going to be pulling with It I would go with the gages first then a 4 in Trubo back ex with a 5 or 6 in tip. If you take care of it, it will last you a long time.
Don't know how long it will take you to get the smile off of your face when you are driving it. LOL
