Talking Hello from LOUISIANA

Let me introduce myself. My name's Derek and I'm from Eros, La. I have a 2000 F250 FX4, 6 speed, 9" skyjacker lift with twin fronts, 37/13.5-17 Toyo Open Country M/T's, 5" turbo back straight pipe w/8" melon chuncker, and Edge Gen 1. I have to be honest, I'm fairly new to the Powerstroke world as I grew up in a GM family. But I must say that I LOVE the truck. Couldn't ask for anything better (glad I decided against the dirtymax). Anyway, the truck has 316,xxx-317,xxx miles on the odo, appoximately 500,xxx actual miles, and is still strong as ever. I am having minor issues, but they are expected. I am hoping to get some good advice from ya'll and doing the same in return.

Thanks,
Derek

Thanks guy's. The truck is rust free. I keep a good protective layer of mud on it for the most part. I actually just got it unstuck from my yard. I went to pull to the driveway from my "shop" and found a soft spot. Instantly sank to the frame even with it in 4wd. Three trucks later and a majorly screwed up yard it is finally out. All this rain and could weather we have been getting has things really messed up around here.

You got a place you take your truck for work? If not I work with a guy who's cousin runs Murray's on north market. He knows powerstrokes inside and out and are good guys. I had them replace my oil pressure switch last week.
