Hello powerstroke org!
I was a recent member until my 6.0 basically imploded with problems (transmission slipping bad, eating coolant, white smoke, fuel pump issues, egr issues, no start issues and so on)
I'm back in the market but for a 7.3 excursion 4x4
my neighbor happens to have one for with 227k on it and wants 10 grand for it. It's very tempting to be back in a diesel. I was offered a trade on my 6.0 for an 06 Hemi Quad cab 4x4 and I took it in a heartbeat... Nice truck but it's kind of puny
Anyways, this excursion I'm buying will need to tow a 28 foot enclosed rave trailer with 2 sets of wheels and tires, tools and a 2800 lb car inside. Same rig as in my sig.
What kind of upgrades should I be looking at?
Do I need overloads like the 350s? My 6.0 had em
I have a nice Brake controller...
Also how good is that 4 speed trans? Does it downshift for you on a downword slope?
Finally would it be safe to upgrade the turbo and injectors with towing that weight?
And I'll be lifting it on 34s-35s with a levelli
g kit... Any comments there.
Thanks for the help... I await bored at work (I do valet downtown in atlanta) and it's gonna be a long day....
