high school 7.3

i bought my 7.3 when i was a freshman and i am now a junior and no mommy and daddy didnt pay for it . i picked it up in mass from a guy who bought from a guy in Atlanta. (i checked car fax). it had no rust except for cab corners. it had 188,000 and a brand new fisher plow and one of the cleanist interiors i have seen, and i grabed her for 7700.

now a year and a half later she is almost done. so far i put 04 lights on her, recon tails, bedliner bumpers and grill, bushwakers, tow mirrors, 6637, 4 in exhaust 6 in tip, glowshift gauges, dp tuner, new tailgate ( old one was all bnged up), tinted the windows, 33in mud tires, and a killer sound system.

the only thing i need now is harley lights and hids, and maybe a turboand stacks if it mother nature want to sprinkle some snow over NH

shes come along way and i plan on never selling it, il drive it till it dies.


the picture with the plow on was last fall, two months after i purchased it

I've replaced mine twice in 25k miles . . . i think the clutch fan is wearing them out . . . going to look into getting some electric fans on her.
