Hey guys I'm buying my first Powerstroke soon! I'm just wondering if there are any typical problems or common issues I need to know about? Thanks!

X2 on NoRalPh's thread! I just went out and checked my OD wires. No signs of chafing at all and it looks like at some time in the past, it was zip tied down so it doesn't look like its an issue for my truck.

It's the little things.
