Smile Hey Hey Hey from AK

So I have a stock 08 F250. The primary use will be DD and to pull my '62 Willy P/U (curb weight around 3300lbs) on a flat trailer (about 1200lbs) right not much weight I know. I will also be pulling it down to N.C from AK later this year. Generally I am happy with it. Starts with no problem at -15F using the block heater. However the CEL is on the dealer says it is a programming error Ford is working on. And it seems to leak oil at idle. Took it in and it was missing a clamp on one of the power steering hoses, stopped most of the leak but still small drip.
Some about me, been in the Army for the past while, done a few tours, and if had thought about would have looked up 08 Powestrokes before I got back. Live and learn.

Glad to have you. My dad has a 51 wagon that needs the small block dropped in it. I would love to have a pickup especially 4X4.
