New from Tennessee!

Hey,

Got my first Diesel ever, a 1999 F-250 Supercab 7.3L Turbo Diesel, 2wd.

Just bought it about three days ago, and I have fallen in love with this truck! I am planning on doing some upgrades to it (Small stuff, nothing crazy) so that I can get better gas mileage (getting 16.5-17mpg) and tow a fifth wheel better.



215k Miles
Everything seems good on it.
Will post updates as a figure out what all has been done besides the grill and tailgate.

Hope to learn a lot from the forums!

For the owners of the 7.3, is there anything I should focus on doing first? Or anything neat you have done to yours that you think I should look into? Just looking to have some fun with the vehicle
