I get it back from the rebuild and a week later I notice my tires were cambered out. Had to replace all the ball joints and one new tie rod. A month later my first blown injector. This month I've had complete hell from the cold reeking havoc on my truck. I don't get it. Is it the weather just completely raping my truck? Or a series of the usual failures. What else can I expect to go wrong on a 7.3 with 160k miles on her?
Usual failures that would cost you much more if you were doing them more often... 160k the motor is just broken in but it's still a truck day in and day out.
Trust me, if you saw how much I've put into my truck this week... well nevermind it's my toy
