Hello from Florida.
I recently bought a 2007 F-250 Crew Cab Lariat FX4. It's a nice clean 2 owner truck with 77,000 miles and it runs great. I read about some of the common issues here before I bought it and checked for any signs of mods. The previous owners kept detailed maintenance records and the OASIS report was clear. So far I've put on a set of Toyo AT2s, 285/70/17 and changed the oil. In the next couple weeks I plan to change the fuel filters and the rest of the fluids and add an A.R.E. topper.
It's mainly going to be my daily driver and be used to pull our 6500# travel trailer a couple weekends a month and on summer trips. I hope to add some pics soon.

Simon

Thanks guys, it' great to be here. I've operated diesels for 23 years in the Army but never owned one. I've got a lot to learn and it looks like there's plenty of information and helpful people here.
