Howdy from Colorado!

We just picked up our first ever diesel two days ago and I've been lurking like crazy here and on FTE ever since. It's a 2006 F-350 SD 6.0L XLT/FX4 long bed. Had 90,000 miles on it. It's a little more basic in the options department than I wanted but that's ok. It doesn't have an overhead console or a trip computer or "message center?" but I'm hoping I can add those.

None-the-less I absolutely love driving it. I really don't know why but it puts a smile on my face just cruising down the highway in it.

First mod will be gauges (Edge CS Monitor or ScanGauge 2 and EGT). After that I'll go through it with all new fluids, filters and etc. Then.......I'll start the performance stuff.

Anyway, back to my lurking.
