No more gas guzzler....

Finally got rid of the gas guzzler, sold my 2000 F150 today, and also bought an 07 F350 Diesel CC long-box, it has some higher KM on it (196,000) and needs a little TLC, but I should get better than 8 MPG towing a small trailer with out lacking power, and yes, it's white.......

It is a XLT, but a stripped down version of it, vinyl flooring, no auto-lamps, no remote key-less entry, and no power seats. But it does have trailer package, (trailer brake controller and trailer towing mirrors)

A few mods coming up for it, Alarm/Remote start combo, 5th wheel hitch rails, and a Diablo Predator

Pictures to be coming soon

Hooker? Cow? Whats the difference? It's that cows are usually free.

The rear running boards are already off, started to damage the metal at the front of the rear wheels, also took out the wooden box liner that was soaked in diesel fuel. Replaced an injector, a FICM, Glow plug control module and both fuel filters. This weekend consists of replacing the EGR cooler (yes, replacing it with a stock one for now) and the oil cooler.
