Newbie here!!

Hey guys...new to the diesel world but have always wanted one. I picked up an 02 7.3 super cab...I'm here in central New York and it's hard finding one that is not a rot box...but I did find one. I had to put some wrench time into it...all new u-joints...rear diff seal...changed out oil pan as it was weeping oil from rot and I had to replace fuel bowl heater as it left me set at an intersection. So...working out some quirks but I have the truck I've always wanted I tow an enclosed trailer for work and have had an F150 and just felt like I was working it too hard. So...any advice for me to keep this baby in tip top shape and what to keep an eye on?? Thanks guys and I have already spent a TON of time reading through these forums....there is so much good info in here!!!

2000 7.3- are they not good gauges?? I saw some good reviews and jumped on them for the price.

AgTires- I had a friend of mine do it...he owns a tranny shop and cut me huge break on labor! He had to pull the motor...raise it up...pulled the tranny and driveshafts...it was a pain in his arse he said. But I had to do it...she was weeping pretty bad. He told me he just did another one not too long ago but the guy went too long and she let go on the highway...he had to do a new motor. I didn't want to take any chances.

I run autometers, had a set of GS and sold them to buy Autometer ultra lights with Blue LED's, I was to scared to runn Glow shifts so i sold them! Alot of people seem to have problems with then and there senders! but with those its hit or miss, some guys on here like Raul (stealth auto) has run them since forever and had no issues and some guys on here are always having problems with them!
