New guy in PA
Hello everyone. I'm a new member living in PA.
I bought my first diesel powered pickup five years or so ago, which was an '02 Dodge Cummins 2500. After finding a "good" deal on it and hearing all the Cummins hype, I thought I was set. Long story short, I ended up getting rid of that money pit piece of garbage after having to rebuild the transmission, replace the injection pump, replace the lift pump, and deal with issue after issue. Maybe the Cummins motor is good, but the rest of the truck leaves a lot to be desired in my opinion. The VP44 trucks were horrible.
I decided to buy a 7.3 Ford after having hauled horses from Iowa to PA in a friend's truck. I couldn't afford a new vehicle, so an older used vehicle was my only option. I feel that all things considered, the 7.3 Ford remains the best tow vehicle for a budget minded person like myself.
I'm looking to improve my braking capability, and may also do some slight power mods (intake, exhaust) and will be looking to this forum for advice.
Thanks in advance for the help!
