After 3 years i'm finally a PSD guy!

Lived on these forums and the 6.0's a LOT. Couldn't pull the trigger on a 6.oh. Man too many problems. I'm not gonna pay $3-4k for APR head studs and then do the egr delete, drip oil and still pray.

Went with A 2002 F-250 7.3..................................

I love the interior, clear markers and headlights, THE ENGINE, great truck. I thought about getting a 05-07 grill, but I kinda like my 02 grill and what it represents (7.3)! Leaving it stock and clean, proud!!! Adult 1 owner.

OK, here it is. 2002 XLT EC LB 4X4 Tan/Tan. 18's with toyo mudders 33's (90% tread). WOW, great aggressive tires that you hardly hear and feel, almost new

109k miles, pretty good, IMO. 1 owner clean carfax, lots of oil changes VERY little problems.

Got it for $15.5. Not bad around here, kinda spendy in the NW, IMO.

Front add a leaf, rear airbags with pump in the cab, pretty cool. Gives it a little lifted look without being too big. Air nozzle on the rear bumber , pretty cool. New shocks. Airraid intake with a superchip left on tow. 4" exhaust.

Very clean and solid, starts good cold and warm, no smoke and shifts solid. Steering a little loose, expected with this @ 109k, need to address.

Pretty stoked!

Yeah I know, that looks sick and only about $250. I just think the old original one on mine actully goes pretty good with the paint and is in perfect shape. It will be on my mind. I also was on the fence on a 6.0 and now that I pulled the trigger on the 7.3 i'm kinda of a 6.0 snob and don't want anyone thinking i'm rollin one of those.
