Picked Up My First Diesel - Any Recommendations

Hey Guys

Just picked up an extended cab 04 with 27k miles. Appears to be in great shape. 1 owner that's a ford tech. Only mods are an 8" fabtech lift, 37" super swampers, and the driveshafts were extended. Anything I should be on the lookout for or should check on?

Thanks

Sit back get a beer and start reading. The links in my signature are a good start.

WOW! An '04 with only 27k! And I thought my '04 with 55k was low. You have a truck there that isn't even broken in yet! Share some pics!

Keep a good eye on the coolant degas bottle.



Unplug you egr valve. This will prevent the exhaust flow through the egr system from going into the intake.

EGR Unplugged

Unplug EGR valve?
