Just purchased

Just picked up an 08 f350 srw. It's amazing. Been reading around.... And considering the "bullet proofing". It's is 100% stock with 125k. Only thing it has ever gone to the dealer for was an egr valve. Anyways, how soon would you guys start adding these tuners/deletes. I am leaving soon for the other side of the world and leaving the truck in my wife's hands... Anything I should be teaching her to look for while I'm gone?

Thanks for any info, the site is awesome and so is all the info I have read in the past two weeks.

Exact mileage right now is 125,761 with 3814 hours, so an avg of 32.97 mph, from what I have read that is good?

Ethan seems pretty much average for the miles as compared to hours.

As for the deletes, the sooner to better. If you don't get to it before you leave I'd let your wife know to try not to shut the truck off while it's still doing a regen. The sooner you get the deletes done though the sooner you will not have to worry yourself with regens.

I would add a tuner and delete immediately. Don't leave your wife with a truck that goes into regen. That sucks

How often do they regen? I may not be able to get the delete done before I go but the tuner I have started looking into and will probably have one in a week or so.

Depends on drivin habits. More city driving will lead to more regens. Maybe every 180 miles or so on the frequent side. Maybe a bit lower than that even.
