03 as in 7.3 or 6.0? that will determine the possible headaches you could or could not have down the road.

Nice score on the late 7.3. Not that many around. Where's it leaking ? Few common easy to fix spots up top.

Welcome to the org!!!

I change all the fluids and filters then pressure wash the under carriage with some purple power and then keep an eye on it to narrow the leak down. keep us updated with your progress and you wont be disappointed with the helpful members and information for your new family addition.
