Just bought my first PSD

Hi all. I just purchased an 01 2WD F250. Its got almost 120k miles on it but runs very strong and shifts smooth. I just boight a fuel filter, and tranny filter and fluid. Is there anything else I should do as preventative maintance? Also is there any cheap or freebie mods to do to these trucks to make them run better? Thanks.

There will be a lot of contreversy on this mod, but there's the 10k & 5.6k resistor mods. Check it out in the 7.3 tech files under mods. While your @ changing the fuel/tranny filters, giver 'er an oil change too. Remember to drain your fuel bowl before you install the new fuel filter to get rid of any foreign material & water. There's a lever behind the fuel bowl for this. Also remember to put a drain pan underneath the front of the truck to catch the fuel. After you replace the filter, make sure the gasket for the cover is seated correctly, snug it up, & turn your key forward to prime the fuel bowl & you're set! Congrats on the new PSD! You'll love it!!!

Chances are you've got 3.73s, but there's an ID tag inside the passenger door with a number for the rear axle. I would've posted the site that helps you look up what no. it is exactly, but it hasn't been working lately.
