New from NY

Hello from NY (NOT THE CITY!)! Long time Ford truck guy, first time Diesel owner. I went from a ’07 Ranger, I4, stick, 2wd to a ’06 F-350, CC, LB, DW, v8 diesel, automatic. Let’s just say it is a change. I have also owned an ’03 Lightning back in the day so I am not lost in a full size truck. I bought it with 107k miles on it. I believe I am the second owner. The deal had no idea but I found the old reg in it and it belonged to a religious group and I assume it was there rig holler. It came with a Rhinoliner in it but you can see where there was a fifth wheel in it. After I got it home I found that the inner bearing and seals had never been changed but the out ones had. I did them this last weekend and man how she rides now. Only other problem I have noticed is the trans shifts a little hard when cold. But I am going to do a complete fluid and filter change as soon as I can so I can get a baseline. However with the bad bearings I was getting 15 mpg. I am looking forward to seeing what I can get out of her.

I want to say thanks to everyone, I have already received a lot of help off the boards by reading past posts.
