Welcome!!! Great to have another member from Oregon!

You might look for one a little newer than a 96-97. JMO.

Smile found a truck

well I think I got lucky. The truck I found is a 95 ford ex cab xlt 250 4x4 7.3 PSD. It has 108000 miles on it and it is absolutly in impeccable condition.One family rig that has been well maintained. The oil has been changed every 3000 miles tranny [auto] serviced and all filters changed properly.Four new E rated tires.,class V 14000 lb. trailer hitch .I'm happier than a clam at high tide.I was looking in the whitney catalog in performance parts for MODs,like air intakes, exhaust systems and chips and noticed they didn't carry any thing for 1995 fords. Why would this be? Is there something different about the 95 PSD? Will appreciate any info or advise

THANKS FRED

Memmer there's a lot of stuff out there for your truck. The usually have parts for that engine grouped with the 94-97 engines and not just a specific year.
