Arizona here

Hey Yall..I thought id introduce myself since I am new here. My names Heather, I have a 97F250 7.3L 5 speed short bed 4x4 with 151K on it. I bought this truck outta NM about a year and a half ago for a smoking deal. Lemme tell you it was a chore finding this year of a truck with the miles she had on her and being a 5 speed. I absolutely love this truck and when the 90s strokes first came out I knew I wanted one. I will admit though back in 02 when my 87F250 6.9L blew a fuel pump(one of the million things that went wrong on this truck) I walked into the Ford and Dodge dealerships wanting to buy a new truck. Sad to say Ford was unwilling to find me a 5 or 6 speed(they said it was near impossible) so I ended up with a 2002 Dodge 3/4 ton cummins quad cab long bed 4x4. Dont get me wrong this was a good engine but bewteen the payments and the body falling apart on the truck I decided to get my much longed for stroke. I wish I would have just boughten this stroke before I bought the dodge but hey we all make mistakes lol.

Lets see...oh I use her for hauling horses and a daily driver. I would love to get a daily driver and leave her for just hauling to keep the miles down on her but unfotunately am unable to.
Well I must get back to work. Its great being on this site and I hope to meet alot of new and intersting people.

From another Zonie, welcome aboard Heather....

And there you have it ladies and gentlemen, another "would rather drive a Ford" addition to the forum... I understand the "nice engine but poor truck" thing here which is why I went with the Ford myself... I knew the 6.0 had some problems initially but mine being an '06 I wasn't worried... So far the only problem I've had is truck related and not the engine... I had the driver power window motor just give up the ghost on me... Warranty took care of that real quick... Man I just love these trucks ....

Again Heather, welcome to the Powerstroke forum...

Ken....

thanks for the warm welcome and glad to see some arizona peps on here.
Heat..Glad to hear you like your 6.0, I know a few folks with em n they havent had much trouble at all either.
Uhpilot..the Pinal Air Park aint to far from where I rope out in Marana on Thursday nights.
Red..thanks for the welcome, glad to see lots of arizona peps.
Pipelayer...I guess im lucky..took me 4 months searching the web to find her..only thing is I wanted a long bed and not a short bed, but im dealing with it (this is my first short bed).
I love my truck...for a 97 with low miles it is a purdy clean truck and the paints in good condition. If I didn't use my truck I would love to lift it cus shed look even hotter lifted but id only do that if I had another pulling truck and since I am a dirt broke cowgirl and all my money goes into my horses that aint happening anytime soon lol.....Although I would so love a 1 ton crew cab 4x4 super duty dually I will just have to dream for now lol.
