My pride and joy

I know i have posted allot of pictures latley but they have been all off my phone so i had my wife take some pictures with her good camera since she does photography

Its my 2001 f-250 4x4 lariat i bought from a friend 2 years ago for $4,500 bucks, he got it new when we were in high school and didnt really take care of it and was trading it in and i intercepted it before the stealership got it for 4,000.

I had to fix the a/c, fuel system, tailgate was missing, and various other odds and ends.

I have custom front and rear bumpers, 4 inch zone lift, 4 inch turbo back, diy intake i know its a spectre but i clean it monthly and in two years the turbo blades still look new, i have done the hutch mod (what a great mod to do the stock fuel filter can go forever it seems with the cheaper spin on filter before the pump) i did a diy coolant filter(wow the crap that was in the first filter after a flush and all) i just put on some 16.5 eagle alloys with 37x12.50x16.5 bfg baja ta miltary surplus tires, the oil gets changed monthly with rottela t 15-40 its free so i change it often, there are many more things i have done but this is just a lil list for anyone that cares Thanks for looking T-Ray

Roger on that, I have always done all my own mechanic work, I do all the work on our tug boats, but there is always something new to learn, I have been getting ready to decide on a new chip and or programmer I have been running a old 2001 hypertech programmer has only one setting its been in the truck since 2001 but I'm ready to upgrade, the only thing that keeps me from getting a chip over a programmer is the ability to read codes

Yes it is when he told me what the dealership was giving him in offered 500 bucks more he thought I was crazy. It was leaking fuel and oil and the pickup foot in the tank had broken off so him being unmechanicaly inclined he thought the truck was done for I didn't tell him any different he was aggravated because he had just spent money having the tranny rebuilt. Needless to say it makes him sick seeing the truck as it is now two years and about 3,500 bucks later

Very nice truck! That engine bay looks extremely clean. Take care of it(like you are doing), and it will always take care of you.

Well, that's what he gets for not taking care of it. Maybe he'll learn the next time around.

Good!! Having the courage to get your hands dirty is the most vital part of learning about these motors! The market for chips on 7.3l is quite extensive and yes, I agree with you completely about the ability to diagnose with a programmer.

Have you thought about using a chip to tune the ECM/ TCM then using an EDGE insight for the digital gauges/ diagnosis? A lot of 6.0l guys run this package (program with one device then Gauge and diagnose with insight) it is a bit more pricey than putting it in one unit but for functionality it works well.

Not to sell you on anything, but we do offer a few things that might help. Www.phptune.com

Even if you choose to go with someone else, I will still be more than happy to offer any assistance with any questions or problems you may encounter.

I will admit.. I wish I could find a 7.3 for that price in that condition! You got a great buy!
