1999 Crew Cab Long Bed Hand-Me-Down!!

So my mom gave me her 1999.5 Ford F350 CCLB with a ZF6 speed. it has 115k miles but it is really dented, thanks to my mom. i have noticed that all the pumps whir and the brake doesn't ease on it just engages or doesn't, so I obviously have some work to do. I figured I'd post some photos of the beast...

oh, and my mom has a tuned e99 for trailering. it's fast. and this beast is mine, all mine, to do what I want with it. anyone have any beginner's suggestions?? I'll be asking alot of questions. sooo be warned and now pictures!

So an update: Took the truck out for a nice, 250 mile loop today, to stretch her legs and look for little things that're gonna make me hate it. first and foremost, the clutch pedal squeals, which is an easy fix, just need to probably lubricate the pivot point...? and all the pumps whir really badly, but all have max fluids. that one confuses me like nooo other. otherwise, she's really nice and cruises down twisty backroads at 55 in the 1700-1900 rpm range no problem. I've decided that she's way too quiet, so the stock exhaust is going bye bye in favor of 4" dp into 5"stainless straights. I think I averaged at about 17 mph which is really good, I was impressed. I'm really liking this truck! Budget permitting I'm going to start modifying in the next couple of months, as soon as I pay off the truck and a ticket..... and I propably will get grounded when my mom sees my grades.

Congrats on the truck! The power steering pumps on these make a lot of noise, don't worry it seems to be normal. I think I read about someone replacing their pump because it was making noise and the new one made more noise than the old one
