Newbie from Colorado.

Just recently picked up an `03 Excursion that needed some TLC after the previous owner let it go back to the bank after being repo'd...
Had to drop some coin on it get it all good - but it's running great now.
Still got some work to do - but, It's a vehicle that I've been wanting for a long time now, and finally had the means to get! And it's my first Diesel.
I've nick-named the truck "Ex-Scurvy" just to all the sick issues it had, but well on the road to recovery now.
Until can get the garage on here updated - here's what I know about the truck so far.
7.3L Diesel, Appears to have a 40gallon tank (I haven't run the VIN to get all the feature list yet)
Been lifted about 6inches, not sure what brand/make.
Rolling on 325/65/18's Hankook Dynapro ATM's, on KMC XD Spy rims.
AFE CAI, and 4in exhaust from the turbo on out.
It's my DD now, and don't plan on getting to radical with it (famous (expensive) last words...)
Future upgrades:
Already picked up an intercooler from an `05 6.0
Rebuild a new turbo with some upgrades (ATS Housing for 1.)
As well as the new up-pipes.
Obviously need to get some Gauges.
Looking at either DP-Tuner F6 or SCT for Tuning.
Would like to rebuild and beef up the Trans, considering ATS's upgrade.
(Since ATS is local - and has some good products and stands behind them is why I'm leaning a lot towards them.)
I'm sure I'll be doing more the DIY simple stuff soon but enough blabbing for now - here's some pics after the clean up and using it for what I wanted it for!
