So I just got my first diesel on Friday. It's a 2002 F350 CCSB Lariat
Introduction thread with pictures here:
My first Diesel... 2002 7.3 F350
I have a couple of issues I need to get addressed ASAP... Security & Mudflaps!!
Help/Advice/Solutions would be greatly appreciated!
1 - Security
Have a club for the wheel. Ordered a Viper 5901 alarm, currently in the mail.
Should I consider a Fuel Pump kill switch or something along that line???
You could. Wouldn't be hard.
2 - Mud Flaps
I'd like to avoid being pulled over for this BS... I've been searching online but haven't had any luck finding removable mud flap kits.
Can anyone direct me to some decent but not pricey ones???
Are mud flaps mandatory where you are? Or just on duallys?
3 - Speedometer
My speedo is way off. Which makes sense b/c it's sitting on 40's.
Are there any options for correcting the speedo???
On my Jeep it's simply a matter of putting in the correct size speedo gear...
Pretty sure you gotta recalibrate on the PCM (computer)
4 - Gauges
I've seen a bunch of people say Autometer or Isspro are the only way to go...
Anyone know of any deals or packages, ideally w/ the A-pillar???
DieselManor has pretty good packages for gauges.
5 - Stereo
Speakers and deck are aftermarket, but it needs a little more bump. Couldn't find any good write ups on boxes or different types of setups.
Any recommendations on how to do subs in a crew cab?
6 - Things I need to inspect
Supposedly the oil was changed by the PO 1,500 miles ago. Other than that I know nothing about any of the fluids and whats been done. Truck has 110,000 miles.
Any recommendations on things I should inspect? Problems to look for? Stuff to flush/change?
I'm gonna say trans fluid, internal filter, fuel filters, maybe diff fluid.
I'm kind of overwhelmed by all the options of stuff to do to these trucks, so steering me down the right path would be much appreciated!
