Cool Bought my first diesel!

AKriser here! I work as a Pipeliner anywhere across the US that pays good, bought a 12,400lb 5th wheel camper at the beginning of my job here in MS/LA and needed a diesel to pull it with!
Just picked up my first truck/first diesel ever. 01 7.3 4x4 CC Dually XLT (3.73) with 148,000 on it. And strait pipe exhaust coming out to dual exhaust in the back.
Hoping I got a good buy as I think I got a pretty damn good price on it.
Bought from Quality Auto of Collins, MS

Welcome to the org. Pulling a 5'er you may be a little underpowered with 3:73's depending on where you travel. If you stay around the south (flatlands) you'll be OK. Just make sure the rest of the intake/exhaust is pretty much free flowing and you have an egt sensor.

True, but doesn't mean that the PO didn't have them changed out.
