Another FL noob

Hello all,

New to diesels, new to the forum. I recently purchased a 2WD '99 F250 crew cab long bed. 10 years ago I was shopping for one and decided on an Avalanche instead and have wanted one ever since. Finally decided to get it and stop living with the regret.

In the short month I've owned it, I've replaced ball joints, rhino lined the bed, new air and fuel filters and tires. Its a little more of a money pit that I expected but I guess I should have known with a 15 year old truck.

Other than being leveled and a Banks Six Gun, its pretty much stock, I think. I'm excited about learning more about these trucks. I had some diesel training 25+/- years ago but I'm sure most has been forgotten. I'll be the guy getting flamed for asking the stupid/repeat questions...sorry in advance.

Here's a pic from the seller of the truck, I haven't taken any others (it looks exactly the same).

Hahaha....don't tempt me. The Avalanche that I owned was bagged and I've been wanting a replacement bagged anything since selling it in '09.
