Newbie from Edmonds

Not new to Fords, but new to the diesel side of life. Previously had an '02 & an '11 F150. Now have this '04 CCSB, OASIS report stated that the engine was replaced 47k ago. This is my DD and be used to tow our '08 Outback 21rs.
Will keep this basically stock, when funds allow will be buying a front hitch to put my 9500# warn on it, and when thats not there and towing the trailer a bike rack.

Not sure what all you get into, but if you're going to possibly use that winch to say get unstuck in the woods you might want to think about getting a heavier unit. A 9500 will work in some situations but will definitely be lacking if push comes to shove.

Thanks for the welcome. The winch is mainly used to pull trees off the road to our cabin in the woods and to pull people out of the sand at the beach.

Good morning and welcome to the .org.

If you are interested in being a CCR member it's easy.....add the CCR logo in your sig(someone will help with that. I suck at it. lol), be active in the chat thread when you can, and try to attend g2gs near you. That's it!

If that motor only has 47k on it and the h/gs are still good you may want to look into deleting the egr asap so you don't have a melt down. I don't want to scare you but getting rid of the egr would be the best thing you could do for the truck especially if you intend to tow with it. I also recommend some monitoring of some kind.

I took the truck in to get the Oil, filters and fuel filters changed and asked the owner about the truck to learn a bit about the faults of the 6.0. He has an '05 with +200k on it and stated as long as I don't mess with it (adding tunes, etc.) and kept up on maintenance, it should last me a good long time. I then asked about adding a coolant filter and doing the EGR delete and he said to only do the coolant filter.

I took it to Pacific Diesel in Monroe, WA since the truck had some maintenance done there previously (different company name at the time).

Welcome!

It's really easy to join.

Here is what needs to be done to join.

All you have to do is try to stay active in the Chat Thread, try to make Gtg's if you can and put the logo in your sig.

Here is the link and how to do it if you don't know how.

Towards the top you will see "USER CP" click it.

From there you can click "Edit Signature" on the left hand side.

From there you can put your name and what ever info you like about your truck and also add this link to it using the insert image button.

-http://www.powerstroke.org/forum/signaturepics/sigpic138659_2.gif-

Just take a look at some of our signatures to get an idea of what you would like to do.

Here is a place some of us have posted about our trucks and ourselves. CCR Truck/Member Pictures

I think I covered it all.

It will last longer with consistent maintenance, yes. It will last longer without tunes, yes. The h/gs WILL ABSOLUTELY last longer if the egr system is gone, yes. #1 cause of h/g failure in a 6oh. If funds permit you should monitor it so you can keep up with what is happening in there. Post up in the chat and talk to some of the boys about 6oh issues. You'll hear enough. lol
