New to Diesels

Hello everyone -

I grew up having trucks (gassers), but once I got married I sold my last pickup about 8 years ago. The wife and I started talking about getting a truck again (got sick of always borrowing someone else's. I have spent the last several months looking for a pickup. We had decided on getting a diesel from the reliability aspect.

Well, I just went and picked up a 2000 F350 crew cab with a 7.3 yesterday. It has just over 106,000 miles.

I think that it might have a wheel bearing or hub issue, it is hard to tell from the sound. But, I will search the boards and see if there is some more information out there.

I apologize in advance for any stupid questions that I might ask. I am looking forward to learning about the 7.3 world.

-Devin
