Bought my first powerstroke, now to limp it across the country to my shop!

Hey guys, I just bought a 2000 F250 in ontario and I'm going to attempt to fill a trailer with all my stuff and tow it back to northern BC!

The truck has 200,000 kms on it and some issues but I'm working them out before I take off! I drove 7 hours north yesterday with it and after topping all the fluids up and adding a diesel additive every fill she really came back to life around 5 hrs into the drive. I think she's been sitting awhile!

I'm getting those series of beeps from the GEM and the windshield was changed so I'm guessing it got wet. I can't afford a new one till I get home so I just turn the stereo up and pretend it's normal for it to randomly beep. Haha

All in all I'm thrilled with my new truck, I've always wanted a turbo diesel and now I get to cross the country pulling a load in my own!!!
