Love the truck!!!!!!!!!

Just an FYI we had a 05 with the 6.0 and it had the turbo problem (which you had done) and the injectors (you also had done) But we also had to have the head gasket done twice. So just keep and eye out but i plan on buying a 250 powerstroke as soon as i get the chance!!

That is exactly why I got he 3/36000 warrenty. It only cost me $2000 and I figured it might end up paying for it self. I hope not though.

I am going to keep it as is as far as the performance goes. I bought it for it's size, fits the whole family, and the bed size. I got the diesel for the MPG and torque. But thanks for the info. I will keep that in mind.

Good lookin truck. Slap on some 35's and ditch all the chrome stuff and be done with it. Oh and don't forget the horsepower goodies.
