New toy. 05 F-350 KR CCLB

I just snagged a new toy. King Ranch 350 with 238k.

The engine has been dusted and it's got alot of blowby. It comes with another short block. I plan on running a compression check and seeing where it stands.

Any good steps to building a 6.0 with the reliability of a 7.3?

Here's a pic

Interior has 238k on it. It was a work truck. I need to get my hands on it and clean and moisturize it. What should I use to clean up real leather??

What's it gonna run to rebuild it?? I'm planning studs egr delete and oil cooler relocation.

you should use the saddle soap stuff that ford sells for cleaning and maintaining the leather in the king ranch trucks. I know its expensive from ford but i think you can probably find the same stuff somewhere else for cheaper but as far as i understand that is the only stuff to use! but that is an amazing find and all. good luck with everything!

with the seats Gatorstoke is right fords soap is expensive but it keeps it the factory color. If you don't care about the color any saddle soap will work but with my experience any other soap/oil turns the seats darker but it is still a good look and either way they are protected.........

Wow!! That's an option. But it's hard to put a $7k engine in a $7k truck haha. I'm surprised they don't cryo the engine.

I'll see what kinda condition the spare short block is in first. Thanks!!!
