My First Diesel!!

Well after several hours of paper work and ect here she is.
]


2000 F-350 Ext Cab Dually. 177k, auto, gray coth. It was a little more than I was looking to spend, but hey you only live once. Hahahaha. Was traded in by a older lady for two chevy Cavalier . She gonna need a little work. Tail gate, driver door actuator, mirrors motors at some point, and some other little odds and ends. I got it home only to discover the rear passengers leaf spring is cracked. :censord: So at some point in the near future that will need to be replaced. Other than that she runs and drives like a champ. It even broke the tires loose from a stop sign.:burnout Has new ball joints, and tires less than 50 miles ago. I very happy with her, beside the leaf spring thing.

Congrats! Great lookin' ride!

Check around here, there's a fix for most of the door actuator problems. It's a simple fix involving a piece of foil!

Enjoy!
