NewB from Houston Area...

Tonite I just picked up my first powestroke truck. 1997 XLT F-250. Cab and a half Long bed 4x4 with an Automatic trans. The truck is in pretty good shape, a few dents and dings but overall great for its history.

The truck is 99% stock, all it has is a K&N full intake, everything else is stock. 230K on the clock.

Looking forward to getting into the diesel world of mods, not sure what I want to do with the truck, but will start with all the easy "have to's". Im sure i will be throwing out some threads trying to figure out what all I should be doing, tips, tricks, etc.
