New PSD Owner From Abq, New Mexico

Hello everyone! Just wanted to introduce myself. My name is Nick, and I am the proud owner(4 days now) of a Powerstroke, which is also my first diesel. I have(had) been looking for a diesel for awhile, and I did ALOT of research before deciding to go with a Powerstroke. Then I did MORE research on what to look for when buying a Powerstroke. The Result? A 2000 F350 PSD, ZF6, 4X4, with 243k miles, that I picked up 200miles from home for $2400. I spent about 1 1/2 hours checking out the F350 before I agreed to buy it, after haggling a little bit of course

I'm very happy with my purchase! Although I do wish it had 35's, I think the 32's look just a little out of place with the lift. Blow-by is normal from what I've found here on the forum, valley doesn't have any oil in it, turbo looks great with no signs of dusting, no weird noises, clutch feels great, and it shifts smooth now that I've gotten used to the clutch. It also came with a spare Sterling 10.5 Axle, and the Smokestack the PO took out when he bought it last year.

But it isn't perfect:
Needs a new multifunction switch(no wipers at the moment)
Power seat doesn't work
Has a very small oil leak, about a 1" stain in 4 days, definitely less than my Jeep that doesn't even run at the moment
Parking brake doesn't work
Windshield is cracked, but not enough to get me pulled over(yet)
Has a 4" hole in the bed from a Stack the PO took off

Hopefully this weekend I can start addressing the issues it has, and I'm sure I'll be posting threads here when I need help. Looking forward to hearing from the forum!
