New to the Forum and to Diesels

Hello all, just picked up a 2000 7.3L F250. Never owned a diesel before, so I'm taking in as much as I can. However I have worked on cars most of my life. I bought the truck to tow my 92 347 Mustang LX to the track, tow the boat, and most of all, because I just wanted to get a diesel!

Thanks all, here is a pic (I'll try to get better quality pics up later on when I get a chance to detail it). I also just put an SCT chip in and ran it on the dyno, but still need an exhaust and air intake for the tune to be correct. It made
191 RWHP and 416 FT LB of torque stock,
and with the chip it's at 291 RWHP and 538 FT LB of torque so far.
