I've had my Powerstroke for about a month and love it. It is a 2000 4 x 2, extended cab, long bed. I'm looking to buy some extra land near my home so I can turn it around :-) The more I drive it, the more I enjoy it. It has 102,000 on it, so just getting broken in. I grew up on a farm so I know all about diesels. My wife and I have 5 diesels. I have a 98 Mercedes E300, an 85 190d with 5 speed, a 2013 Audi A3 TDI, and an 84 Ford Ranger Diesel-stock, and now the 2000 Powerstroke. I also have one gasser, a 75 Triumph TR6. Oh and I have an 83 Ranger diesel that is perfectly driveable, but has a rough body. As you can see, I love vehicles.
Love to do as much of my own wrench turning as I can. In fact, anyone who owns a British Leyland automobile (the Triumph) either has to be rich or able to do their own maintenance. With a Triumph, it is often, work 2 hours, drive 1 hour. Not really, just seems that way sometimes.
Glad to be part of ya'lls forum.
