My name is Chris. I'm born and raised just outside of Detroit, Michigan. Been a truck addict all my life, and even more so a Ford fan. Ford Motor Company has been putting bread on the table in most of my family members household their whole lives
I'm the proud owner of 2012 Ford F-150 XLT 4X4 with the EcoBoost. Was a little iffy on going from a V8 to a V6, but I honestly love the motor and the truck in general.
Long story short, as happy as I am with my F-150, I have always had the urge for a diesel. I have always been captivated by the looks of the 6.0 for some odd reason or another, and I always said I would own myself a lifted 6.0. A friend of mine just purchased a lifted King Ranch 6.4 which doesn't exactly help my urge any either.
Am I stupid to consider selling my truck for an older Stroke? I would love a nice 7.3, but being in Michigan, it's hard to find one without a rusty frame or body. Like I mentioned, I'm not sure of my attraction to the 6.0. I've done my research on the problems with the motor and that, and have several friends who own them and would be there to help me do the work and give me pointers. I also have a friend who promised me dibs on his 07' F-350 Outlaw, but who knows when he'll give that up. Or why he would
Anywho, sorry that was long winded. Lookin' forward to learnin' lots of info and meeting new guys who share the same passion for Powerstrokes! (despite the fact I don't even own one!)
PS - I've included a few pictures of my EB and of the other toy!
