I love my 7.3

So i was driving home from work this morning and I all of a sudden got a big grin on my face, I had came to the realization that I love my 7.3. I traded my 05 6.0 for this truck a few months ago, which had considerably less miles on it and was also alot faster to cruise down the road in. Alot of ppl gave me crap for going down to a 2000 model. I tell them though I bought it for the engine. My 6 was a good truck but It always seemed to be something new going wrong with it. My 7.3 might take a few seconds more to get up to cruising speeds on the highway but Im more confident in it then I ever was in my 6. All and all Im very happy with my truck, and lucky me I found one with the 05 face lift and even a full interior swap to the king ranch, the previous owner even went so far to swap the entire dash...in my book hes one heck of a guy for saving me all that money lol. Thats it I just wanted to share my love for my ford.

I recently had one of these moments. We had just gotten back from a 1200 mile trip over Easter in it...

I'm starting to love mine again... I think I figured out the "issues" I was having.... none now for five hundred-ish miles.... so hopefully I'm past it....

But yeah, the T444E ROCKS!
