Hey all, newbe here.

Hello to everyone from S. IL.
Just joined the forum and the 7.3 family. Bought a 02 F350 with 233,000 out of TX. Was told the motor has around 120,000 on it. Hoping to use this sight to help me through the problems that may come along and to do a few mods to help improve mpg. I bought the truck to pull our 33' travel trailer. I was very please on the return trip from TX. With a car on the dolly and the truck set at 72 on cruise I had no problem coming up through MO. Figured the car and dolly was about half of what the camper is so hoping it was a good indication of what I have to look forward to. Wish me luck.
