Smile Howdy from CO

After spending almost a month reading posts on the “ORG” (and elsewhere), researching 6.0L engine issues, and looking at 06-07 SDs around Denver, I took the plunge yesterday and bought a 2006 F350 XLT CCSB.

It's a former work truck for a small local contractor, with about 106K miles. Looks in good shape overall, still grungy inside before dealer detailing, but no burns or cigarette smells. And under the hood is pretty clean.

It has a turbo-back exhaust, AFE intake, and looks like upgraded turbo. Interior has boost and EGT guages in pillar pod, and all options, except power sliding window and leather.

My camera flaked out yesterday, so I'll post pics sometime Monday.

Thank you for the warm welcome.

The truck is still at the dealer, getting an HPO leak repair and detailing.

This is the best overall shot I could get in the dealer's parking lot.



More pics in my photo album.
