First Powerstroke new member

Hey all,
I just bought my first Powerstroke. I had an 86 F150 before and loved it, but really wanted a diesel. I knew I wanted a 7.3, but knew the autos were not the greatest, and searched high and low for a 5 speed 4 door.
Here is my 97 F250 4x4 crew cab.
It has a rebuilt 5 speed
4 door
edge programmer,
3.5" straight piped with downpipe
Intake,
Exhaust brake mod.
It has had the cool smittybilt front bumper with a warn 900
and the reunel heavy duty two bumper
I found it with 188K for $6500. (someone hit the door so it needed to be replaced hence the price. But i was stoked as its just the door so i am just going to swap it out and repaint. So far I LOVE the truck.
I come on the forum a lot for resources since I have bought it.
Here are a couple pics.






Thanks

Teal

I parked next to a stock f250 same as mine.....mine was MUCH higher than the other one. I know my tires are slightly bigger, but not by much. Is it lifted from the factory or something? Do you guys notice it at all in the pictures?
