Just bought my first diesel. 2008 xlt with 45k miles. I have been around gasoline engines for a long time and have taken the plunge into the diesel world. I am allready looking to do 5 inch flo pro exhaust, h&s mini maxx and s&b intake but theres still year and a half warranty left and im debating what to do. Drove the truck home 4 hours yesterday and loved. I have owned 3 ford rangers and loved them but let me tell you nothing compares to a diesel.
Heres a few pics



Heres what it will be towing


Nothing crazy or even close to heavy but i like to travel occassionally and take the boat and the ranger just wasnt cutting it.

Heres one of the ranger i built myself and sold to move into the super duty.

I live in Lindenhurst, Long island which was hit very hard by Sandy. However, i am fortunate enough to live far enough from the water to have not been affected by the flooding. A lot of my friends have lost everything including their entire homes. The devastation and mess down here has been unreal but everyone has been coming together and we will rebuild. I am currently a controls engineer for a building automation company but worked in a fiberglass shop where i still work on saturdays. We have seen boats all over the place with all kinds of damage, it really is a shame. Material items can always be replaced though.

Thanks for the welcoming, look forward to learning as much as i can about my new toy!

Dang man - Sorry to hear about your area. I'm glad to hear people are coming together. I've only seen stuff on the news, you're right in it.

Check out the link to the NY Chapter - you may be able to meet fellow members. Some may be able to help in some way......maybe. Just a thought.
