Just purchased a 2006 F350 supercab with 153,000 miles. Where should I start for preventive maintenance. Truck runs good. Thanks...

Any time I buy a used vehicle I always start with changing all fluids and filters. I would change engine oil and filter useing a good diesel oil of you chose and a motorcraft oil filter, Then change front and rear diff gear oil, and then transmission and transfer case oil. Then a new air filter and change both fuel filters. That way you know the conditon of all fluids and filters. After that I would just start running a fuel additive of your chose.

Read the stickies in the 6.0 forum. You need to monitor the vital; things the gauges wont tell you. Also, the 6.0 needs to be ran hard and cooled down after, (let it idle for a bit).

Read them ASAP and get the oasis report on the truck. Very important.
