Just bought a 2005 F-250 PSD. Pretty nice truck, lowish miles. My first diesel truck. I bought it anticipating putting some money into it, and my reasons for it are to take my family out into the woods with maybe a small trailer, and to do so in a large, safe vehicle, also to make the occasional trip to lowes or home depot easier. My wife works from home, and this will be her DD as well. (I take the Crown Vic that she hates more than anything in the whole world for my 1.5 mile commute)
She runs great at the moment, however I am planning on a cluster or monitor device, and then likely a EGR delete (to use off road of course), oil cooler, blue spring, and coolant bypass system. Also anticipating a set of apr studs and gaskets, but I am hoping to do that only if I really need to, or later down the road.
I am relatively new to the Albuquerque area and hope to find a decent shop to do what I need done (recommendations?) . I wish I could do this stuff myself, but the farthest I have got on work on a vehicle was doing a fuel filter and replacing a pulley/new serpentine belt on the Vic. Got it done and everything went fine, but..... The inside of this truck's engine bay is about as cram packed full of everything, and 6 feet off the ground, and I can't make heads or tails out of anything in it.
OK well, thanks for reading!
