Cool New guy on LI

hey guys, picked this truck up on saturday.


Just bought this truck, I think I got a great deal on it, but let me know what you would have payed for it based on this 1 excellent picture

its a 2003 6.0 F250 crew cab long bed Lariat package with 6 disc changer, leather, seat heaters, power seats, power mirrors, power pedals, the works. and 105k on the clock.

It was used for work but not towing or hauling that heavy, just home renovation stuff. Never had a plow on it

Anyone in the Long Island,NY area have a smoking deal on a plow for me? What size can this thing handle? I also need a set of 265/75/16 tires for it.

Also looking for an edge programmer, egr delete, and coolant filter kit

thanks, Richie

I would've paid around $16,000 but I got my '05 King Ranch for $21,000 in '08. First thing first... get an engine monitoring system to see where your critical components are at as far as condition. Scangauge II and the CTS are two of the more popular. You're on the right track as far as EGR delete and coolant filter. Keep in mind that if you do an EGR delete, might as well replace oil cooler right away as well. And if you're worried about the coolant, might want to consider doing an ELC (EC-1) swap right away as well.

In the mean time, welcome to the org man. Do some searching and some reading. I'm half way through my masters degree and have easily read 3x's more on this site than I have for my degree.

I'm a recent college grad and I have read SO much more about 6.0s than accounting and calculus haha.

I was hoping to fall into a used one. After buying this truck, tax, registration, the maintenance I want to do, a set of tires, the inspection, I'm spending a lot of money right now.

I feel that I have a good grasp on the common problems and what needs to be done, the importance of gauges, now I just need a blank check.

Any opinnions on brand of delete/cooler? Sinister's stuff looks cool and I like how they use less hose clamps, less opportunity to loosen up and it just looks cleaner on the install. Price seems competitive with dieselsite's kit.

I think you are referring to the coolant filters and not a delete.
It's just a matter of preference.
I went with the dieselsite coolant filter system. It is more versatile in mounting locations since the hoses are not pre-made to a set length. I added more hose and moved the filter under the truck. That area on the passenger side on my truck is occupied by an oil bypass system, so the coolant filter had to either go or get moved.

sorry, reading it now it makes no sense lol. I was looking for an opinion on the egr delete, and also the coolant filter. the filter is the only one I have an intelligent opinion on haha.
