Arizona Newbie to PowerStroke.org site

Howdy all!

Found this site after googling expected mpg for a 7.3.

I have a 1997 F350 crew cab 4X4 long bed with about 125K. I like it as much now as when new. Lately I have been getting pressure to buy a new (Dodge) truck, but I cannot imagine any truck performing better than what I have. I use it primarily for hauling horses (30' LQ), but it's a been everywhere, done everything type truck (and NO, I won't help you move...).

Looking forward to reading/learning from what y'all have to say in this forum.

Welcome to the site! The new Dodges sure are nice. And I do like the mega cab for sure. But I also like not making that HUGE payment every month so for me Ill hold out for a bit!
But heck a 97 with 125k is just gettin broke in!

you need to find a new peer group and stop hanging with folks who are trying to bring you down to their level

Thanks. I'll check out APG.
I'm on the outskirts of Tucson where having a good truck comes in handy.
