'98.5 F-450

Just picked this one up at a construction company auction for $12k. It is a '99 (early) F-450 6spd with 88k miles. I think we got a descent buy. It has a small fuel leak on top of the engine I have to find, but is in pretty good shape.

What do ya'll think?

Got a new Question. My truck has been modded for so long, I can't remember what a stock truck should feel like. Our new truck seems like something is holding it back until you give it half to full throttle. It idles a little rougher than mine.

my truck feels like it has something wrong with it when I turn my chip down to Stock..... then I realized that I have just gotten used to the extra power and forgot how far I had to push my throttle down just to get my truck to move before the chip
