Hi from CO

First post here on Powerstroke as is my first Ford ever! I have owned for brief periods two other diesels including a Duramax (in way over my head on payments years ago...age/wisdom thing) and a POS cummins that was a complete pit. Even though I think Dodge can make a good truck I commend ford for not taking taxpayer money and I have some good friends that love and swear by powerstroke so I made the jump about two weeks ago on a 02 Lariat long box crew with 125000 miles. I am a complete amateur mechanic but have not encountered a vehicle project yet that has me lost or towing it to the real mechanic. I am kind of excited to take on more complicated projects with Big Red and will be posting some of my issues shortly. From what I have read over the past few weeks on this site I knew it was the right place to come for help and hopefully at some point I can reciprocate that in the future.
