FL Newbie

Hey guys I have been lurking on the forum for around a week now and thought I would introduce myself. My name is Mike and I am in the Orlando area. I have been driving a Mustang for the last 7 years and decided to upgrade. I figured what better upgrade then to go with another Ford right?

I recently picked up a 2004 F-250 4WD and love it. It has very low mileage(55k) so I am hoping I can catch the 6.0L problems before they catch me. I have done a lot of reading about bullet proofing the motor but need to focus on Christmas and recoup the bank account after it sustained a hit to buy the truck.

So guys that's pretty much it. Looking forward to becoming part of the family. Any locals feel free to PM me and most importantly thank you powerstroke forum!
