Been lurking for a while and it's time for a into.

Just moved here to upstate New York from Alaska. I have a 04 f250. I bought this ford (my first) to do work. I tow, plow snow, work, and play. I got this truck cheap because the po hated the 6.0. It reached a 100k and he just unloaded it. I did some research before I bought and figured out there are a of of whiners giving the 6.0 a bad name. When I worked for the man I was a gm mechanic and remember hating the duramax when it came out. I think I got a good deal even though I know I am going to have to get my checkbook out and my hands dirty.
So far I have changed the oil and fuel filters. I am going on the recommendations from this site a buy a monitoring system. An exhaust will also be coming shortly. Mechanically the truck is in good shape, minus a vacuum pump for the hvac/4wd. There is some oil in the coolant reservoir but I am hoping that was left over from previous repairs.
The truck tows great and is meant to have a load, empty it drives like a tank and does not have the power I thought it would have, but the truck is also pushing 35s with 3.73.
This site has been great, lots of information to absorb. Well that's my intro, hope it wasn't too long
