Hello All! New Member
I'm a n00b/newbie/noob to not only PowerStroke.org, but also the Diesel side of things as well. Upgraded from my trusty Extended Cab 2004 F-150 4.6L to a Super Cab 2005 FX4 F-250 6.0L.
When I began shopping, I was made aware of the issue(s) that existed with the 6.0L, which made me decide to focus my efforts on purchasing a Chevy 2500. Unfortunately, with increasing gas prices the Chevy fell out of budget. I did however manage to find a well taken care of 2005 F-250, as mentioned above.
It comes to me with a pristine tan leather interior and royal blue exterior (as clean as you are going to see for a work vehicle), 168k miles, near-new Michelin tires and a 5th-wheel hitch. It was owned by one and only one owner, who I have spoken with.
He mentioned that it was used to tow only a 5th wheel for their environmental business. It has had the oil cooler and 1.5 sets of injectors replaced. The first set of injectors was all 8, the second time was just a set of 4. He said the only real reason he traded it in was because of downtime associated with the injector repairs. Otherwise, he had not one bad thing to say. It does have a BullyDog Triple Dog tuner installed, which thus far has been used only for reporting purposes (The display will not seem to stay in any mode but STOCK).
All that being said, what are the first 5-10 items you would have me check as a new owner? I will surely take pictures of any parts/items in question. I appreciate everyone's time and look forward to your responses.
