Arrow Newbie from UT..broncomitch

Hey everyone, Mitch from SLC, UT
I signed up in 2011 but just been stalking around here and there.
I'm a rock crawler by hart and have been sense a kid and obviously wheel a bronco,witch is under the knife at the moment and needed a better tow rig so...

I got my first powerstroke on Saturday!

I traded my 98 f150 for this 99 f250 and I'm pretty stoked to finally get my diesel

Truck is a 99 f250 short bed 7.3 powerstroke with 234k on the clock.
Truck has a hybrid turbo, built BTS tranny, 4" down pipe 5" exhaust,UMP intake,
18"Rockstar wheels and pretty new 285 toyo A/T's

Light scuffing on the drivers side

Bronco


F250







Any guesses how much this skirted rugby utility bed is worth? He said he had more calls on it then the truck with offers up to $800..
But I Figure I'll trade it for a stock short bed.

Nice looking rig... From the passenger side just playing... Get a used hood and door and that thing will look a great. Best part is the oxford white is the most common color on super dutys! What's all done to that crawler? I love those things and if I had the money I'd build myself one.

Thanks for the welcoming!

Sadly I'm starting to question the maintenance on this truck...
I'm smelling fuel but can't tell where it is coming from, and I have a oil spot on my driveway (might be the fuel degreasing my motor?)

Found this little surprise yesterday and it looks like I have copper fuel lines?




I have a normal work day today so after work I'm going to start to look into this truck's mechanical state..
My brother had a PS SD and his wouldn't turn when he is at a stop and mine won't ether....is there anything I can do to fix that?

I'm having a few other questions also, but I'll start a thread.
