Proud new F350 owner

Hello All-

Just wanted to stop by and introduce ourselves. We just bought a 99 F350 Crew cab,7.3L turbo diesel and couldn't be more happy with it. The dealer replaced all ball joints saying it would get rid of the "knocking" sound, but come to find out it needs bushings as well, so they are gonna do that too!!! This is our first venture with a big truck and more so with the diesel. I was wondering also if anyone has done anything with their diesel in the biodiesel area. What kind of mods are you looking at if any, or do you just make it, pump it in and go? Do you so our lack of experience in this area?! Is the biodiesel really worth it, will it void any warrenty which we do have a 24,000/2 year warrenty? Any input in this area would be highly appreciated and just some common knowledge of how to get longevity out of these rigs. We are the type of people who buy a car and drive it for the long haul, OK no pun intended!!!! I'd post a pic but we don't have one yet!!! I'll get one soon!!!

Looking forward to hearing from you
