hey, ajordan193 thanks this truck just dropped into my lap, been looking for a newer truck for a while now, the truck is super clean still can't believe I got it. As soon as i figure out how to post a picture on the site, I will snap a digital photograph and send it. looking forward to tweaking the motor. I have alot to learn about the 7.3 psd, but everone on this site has been cool and helpful. I going to ask all the diesel heads on the best chip to use, superchip or dp tuner and what the differances are between the two. thanks again.

Congrats on the truck, i've always loved this body style since i was a little kid and wish mine wasn't rusting. I have a 97 F250HD Reg cab 4x4 7.3 with 119k, i purchased it as a work truck since i own a landscape and plowing company and this truck kicks ***. I have upgraded everything on the truck including F350 suspension and axles. I also added a superchips programmer and its ok but i would go with something different if it was my personal truck. I'm not a fan of the hard shifts i get from this programmer so i'm sure others will guide you on the right track. Good luck with the truck
