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!

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