New to Forum and Excursion Owners

Hi All,

Been lurking and reading. I just traded in my 2011 BMW 328i for a 2003 7.3L XLT.

I have a baby on the way and am going to start needing the extra room. The X has 132k miles on it and it's clean in and out...

I was looking for stickies on the most common questions but couldn't find any on the forum. I'm also new to the diesel world. The truck was recently serviced at the Ford dealership I got it from but what other minor things can be done, now, that can help take care of the engine.

Welcome to the forum! Oh how I remember those days not so long ago, lol. I went thru all that too man, the decked out hondas, a turbo SRT-4, an FJ, was thinking about buying an M3 or some other higher dollar go fast machine. THEN, the baby news. So I went and bought a house and an Excursion instead! At least I knew enough to buy the diesel so i could still play.

Congrats on both fronts!

Regular maintenance and I always try to purchase fuel at the same place if possible. Read through the forms, there are a lot of knowledgable members.
