newbie from northern illinois

Hi how are you guys, I recently bought my first pick-up and after a lot of looking went with a 2004 ford f350 swd with the 6.0... new to owning a diesel pick-up but been driving semi's for about 7 years now. Would love to hear everyone's opinions and see how the maintain their trucks. So far I love the truck and love the way it runs and handles. I do have many questions in reference to maintenance and tuning... so I do look forward to any input and advice anyone may like to give. thanks and look forward to seeing ya'll around the boards...

Nice truck. I have one the same. Best work truck I've ever had.

Check out the 6.0 sections. Lots of good info in the 'stickies' there. Mods, mtce, deletes. Etc etc.

Good luck with it. ~ Support them
