Time to introduce myself

I have been lurking here for a while now and with the purchase of my new to me truck I figured it was time to say "hi"

I picked up an 08 (Job 1) F250 4x4 XLT CC SB and absolutely love the truck. I came from an 07 Dodge MegaCab 4x4 with the hemi and the 2 trucks couldn't be more different (except for the mileage) both avg. about 11.

The truck has right at 80K with a recent oil change - I am planning to do the tranny service/fuel filters and do an engine flush/oil change next week - is there anything else I should look at doing, coolant or would it be okay to wait till 100K?

Thanks and look forward to being pretty active here.

Welcome to the site. Make sure that all the TSB's are up to date. The dealer can check that for you.

Post some pics when you get a chance.
