Figured I'd post some pics of the DD, new member trying to fix the old beast.
Here's the run-down:
96 F-250 7.3/Auto 381k miles
New Transmission, Fuel Pressure Regulator, Fuel Lines & Lift Pump
3" Diamond Eye Down Pipe & 4" Straight-Pipe Back
Homemade Air Intake & Edge Evolution Programmer




20' Wheels are gone. Waiting for bigger tires or some 17's. I really like my 16.5's & 33's. Just enough wheel and tire to feel in the wheel wells.

If anyone can check out my idle problem in the engine duscussion.
Thanks

Thanks for the compliments, I lucked up and found a Florida truck, I dnt believe tge truck ever seen snow til I got it. It's my pride and joy, as I tell friends & family "my wife will leave me before this truck leaves me".

Got a few new future plans:
TS 6-Position Chip
All Electric Fuel System
6.0 Intercooler
Turbo & Injectors
I know ultimately it'll lead to more but I'm trying to pace myself

Truck has a nice read bumper, but I think I'm gonna go with a Winch Ready made front bumper, like the style.

First off is getting my idle problem fixed, add sum more power then ill throw a lil good looks in.

Thus is the first 13+ tear old truck I've owned (well only vehicle) that people stop me to wanna buy it or compliment the truck. Any other OBS around here is already rotted out

Well went ahead and ordered a TS Chip should be here Tuesday (hopefully ill get it running right by then) also found a guy on Craigslist with 99 PS intercooler and piping, along with a Bully Dog Pyro/Boost/Trans Gauge Set so hopefully if I get the ole girl running right ill have a good tune and good EGT's. And all under $550

Sounds great, I'm trying to find a nicer wench bumper for a decent price, but I'm stuck badly wanting an iron bull, and good deal on those parts, give Paul at cptrucks.com a call for that 4 gauge pod it looks sweet imho.
