cali street queen to Idaho workhorse

so originally bought my Baby with 48k on the clock 8in super lift super shiny wheels and some super weather cracked 38's.... and realized I needed a truck for work not to sit on the pavement thus my journey being new to diesels began...

this is how she looked they day i got her... I'll admit I miss the 38's and height alot actually but I did this for long term plans not coolness. I have already done 90% to the truck i wanted but you guys all were extremely helpful so wanted to share the transformation.

little did I know how deep I was in...

after about 3 months started puking a little coolant but realized the degass bottle was filled to the brim even after sitting during a 30 degree night i know its not that cold but chilled enough to get accurate measurement and well after a test done by Mark recommended to me by MKMcustoms i had a blown headgasket...

so: ARP, Egr delete, new oil cooler, pass glow plug harness, body mount and some serious cash later this:
however now i knew I had the start of a great and now reliable workhourse!

not long after the headstuds I heard and saw a silver f250 on base that drove by me at the gym and heard that amazing whistle! so google i went and then few weeks later in sac got it installed! HOLY CRAP WAS I MAD!!! I got the turbo and the whistle was pathetic... well then i cut my muffler off and it got little better but still pretty mad cut my cat off and found a hollowed one on CL and got a pipe put through so it looked mostly stock and now my roommates never forget the day i rolled into our quite little old folks filled neighborhood lol... this is pic of my old turbo i sold i didn't take any pics of the 03 before it went on.

next I had to sell these seriously shiny wheels and the tires... had 14/32s tread but weather cracked to ewfwefw!!! so sold them for a good price and found some used 315/75r16 terra grappler at's with some crummy flaky wheels... but 1. wanted smaller lift, 2. great price and 3. oh man they looked goofy...

up next the coolant filter, edge insight and a used sct sf3, tool box, new alt, and whole interior/ seat change.

again this is all pretty old news but a recap and I would like to keep on building.

then after about 4 months got the 8in superlift removed and installed a 4in rough country because i don't have a huge cash flow but the goofy looks driving me nutz!!!

word of advice if you wanna run 35's get a 6in lift.... i smashed a small piece of rear on front fender going over a curb... heres a before and after as well as the 140$ tool box gas to get it included allowed me to carry many more tools and some straps and such for road trips and if anyone ever got stranded etc...

after doing some research got introduced to the high-idle mod and I feel it was one the easier and better mods...

allowed to reduce running time before driving off and the high idle rpms was better for engine then just letting it idle til about 130's ect/eot..

1. I don't like leather in hot cali weather im from idaho

2. I wanted a center seat for front i do lots of camping and road trips and we tend to till the truck with people and gear since im the only 4 door truck that can also pull a trailer.
