New OBS diesel owner

I traded off my gas truck a month ago to allow the purchase of an OBS truck. The wife and I decided we wanted a crew cab truck, as we were always tight on space with the dog and kid in tow.

I picked up a 97 F350 Crew Cab Long Bed, so far I've been happy with it. I bought it from a local wholesaler after it was traded in at a dealership.

I'm still learning about the truck but what I know so far is it was a canadian rig for the first couple years, then brought into the US. It has a built auto, intercooler, mbrp exhaust, and shackle reversal on the front. It has a tuner but I haven't dug out the computer to see which yet. I'm hoping to do it this weekend. It also looks like the intake side of the turbo was replaced, I assume to match the intercooler. But I'm still learning about the diesel game so I could be wrong.

I drive a company van for work so the truck is soley for towing the toys and hauling the camper.

Anyways, I've been lurking on the site reading and searching for a month or so, I figured I'd create and account and post.
