Purchased the solution to unreliability today

As some of you know I've had tons of problems with my 6.0 since Jan. No matter what upgraded parts I get or mechanics I use it still isn't dependable for me. Another problem develops every couple weeks. I've thrown over $20k at it this year alone. So I bought this today. Not selling the 6.0, I owe more than its worth probably. I'm just tired of sitting on the side of the road loosing money. Going to work with this for now. I got it with an 8ft Western plow too. 1997 F.350 190k Brand new trans with upgraded tq converter. Afe intake and cat delete. This truck will be staying stock.

That is nice man, congrats. I have a 96 7.3 308k, it's not quite that nice looking. Original injectors. Still fires right up, due for some maintenance though. We didn't worry about that back then. Lol.

Sent from my phone that somebody didn't help me get.

Probably one of the nicest, if not the nicest and cleanest OBS truck I've seen in awhile. Good luck.

Did he say 20k in repairs? Did he replace an engine?

He's admitted he drank the coolaid on aftermarket parts, and he doesnt do his own work.

Edit: Those two things are pocket book killers. No negativity intended.
