new from Texas

Just bought a 2004 f350 fx4 crew cab short bed. Traded in my 2007 dodge 1500 2wd. I needed something that would pull my jeeps better.

I picked it up last Wednesday it has 143k on the clock. When i got it the overhead display didnt work. $25 for a soldering iron and solder fixed that. I found out on Friday after i set the emergency brake that the e-brake release didnt work. $40 at the dealer got me a new release assembly. The sunroof also didnt work properly. Took the glass out and inspected found the driver side had some broken parts in it. Found a repair kit online for $120. Sure beats the hell out of the $925 the dealer quoted me for a new assembly. I got some royal purple and some CAT ELC EC-1 from work. Plan on flushing the coolant and changing oil this weekend.
Its a working process. I had the dealer run an oasis report on it and it didnt have major warrenty work done on it. It had been in 4 times to recalibrate the computer and once to replace egr valve.
