Howdy, from Spring Texas

Good morning everyone. Thought I'd sign up and browse old threads to see what kind of info I can find.

Purchased a 96 F-250 2wd with 308,000 miles on it back in April.

Had the following installed:
new water pump, vacuum pump and belt.

Still needs some work but all in all is a great truck. Starts right up and gets me down the road.

Not big on the wheels it came with but for now it'll stay the same. We have our wedding in November so you all know where the money is going until then.

and for the record I can't stand the after market head lights the previous owner installed. I prefer stock... so eventually those will be replaced.

My wish list:
Fresh coat of paint-same colors
Dash piece replaced
Drivers side door panel replaced or repaired
big heavy beastly bumper up front for my urban driving needs
Possibly a work bed... not sure yet if that's the direction I am going
Replace rims with smaller ones possibly stock and tires that are more appropriate in size (these are too big imho)
Repair AC

Same here.. this body style F250 is my favorite truck period. At 31 years old it's my first pick up lol. I've always wanted a truck but never came around to treating myself. After the body style changes I still had my heart set on one of these. Would have liked it to be in better condition but all is good... I enjoy it and LOVE the sound of that 7.3

Thanks for the warm welcome folks.
