Newbie diesel owner that got lucky!!

Live in the mid Louisiana state an I am a mechanic, hate my bosses jankedy ratty dually so I got a 04 F250 lariat 2wd crew cab swb. 163xxx seen a sticker sayin bdp.com I got excited like a kid in a candy store found out I have the full kit minus the ficm from bdp! Dunno bout the studs but ill find out eventually when I do an injector. Truck is immaculate clean and absolutly sexy. Pulls like a beast an looks amazing doin it. She's got a few issues at the moment an hoping to get em fixed soon an not to expensive either. Mostly did the gas burner tuners but I needed a truck. I do love my 88 supra though I am cheating slightly but I hope my yota will forgive me!

Do a search. You can see if it's studded by looking at the front left valve cover (as you're sitting in it) area. If you see a bolt with an Allen key head in it, you have studs. Sounds like a nice find. What did she cost you if I might ask?

$5,300. Absolutly dirt cheap. Amazing clean inside an out not a nick, ding, dent or messed up paint anywhere. Dude that owned it kept a maintenance record of all oil an fuel filter changes an that's where I found the bdp.com entry an really started looking hard. Went from an older vehicle to spankin new. I got the deal of a lifetime an I'm not gonna push my luck any further for a while!
