This is my first post and just thought I would intro myself. This site looks like the right place and a great source of info
I've been lurking here while looking for the right truck. I've been searching for a used tow vehicle for an 8300 lb 5th wheel. I've looked and driven so many Duramax's and Powerstrokes in the last 3 weeks I'm numb. Several friends recommended the DMax but I really wasn't impressed with them at all and hated the interiors.
Yesterday I finally bought a very clean higher mileage (135K) 03 F250 Crew in the Lariat package, moonroof, and gee-gaws galore. The truck runs great, no leaks, idle, or boost issues that I can detect yet. I have a lot to learn as this is my 1st diesel so I'm reading up on the EGR/cooler issues, clogged turbo vanes, but I'm sure there are many more. I'm not new to turbos, just diesel versions, and do almost all my own work.
Is there a specific link here for new owner info on the the 6.0L? Any mods I make would be for towing performance with longevity and reliability my top concern.
