New to the Ford World

New Member,

I am 64 years young and in the process of purchasing my first Ford truck (owned many Chevrolet trucks) , a 2008 Ford 6.4 F-350 HD with 55,000 miles. I have been looking for a DRW with a regular cab for a couple years and finally found one that I like, it is about 500 miles away and is an internet sale from a dealer. I hope to pick up the truck next week and would like to know what problems I should look for prior to handing the dealer the check.

All factory recalls have been completed.

2008 Ford XLT
6.4 Diesel
2 wheel drive
6 speed standard Transmission
4.10 Differential

first off congrats on the ford you will love the truck. i would ask the dealer for an oasis report so your can see if there has been any warrenty work done on the truck, with only 55,000 miles i wouldnt be to worried about the dpf and egr yet but you will defenitly want to delete those and get a tuner the truck will love it and you will love the milage. unless you have a scanner to take with you thats about all you can do.
