Finally

Finally driving my Superduty again.
Replaced:
FICM burned up - Replaced
Head gaskets - Slight leak - New gaskets and studs. EGR deleted with sinister diesel kit, plus degas bottle cap replaced.
Starter - burned up and replaced.
It runs, starts and drives so much better and my fuel mileage is back up.
Quick wash to clean 2 months of crud off.

Nice! Any plans to have that dent fixed? Not that it is noticeable in the pics, I just remember the thread about it.

Dent in the cab is getting fixed soon. It is very noticeable if you see it from POV. Plus i have an 05+ front end to put on it still. Just waiting for the front bumper to come in so i can do it all at once.
