My new truck anticipation thread

Gotta spill the beans, can hold back any longer.

2005 F250 4x4 Crew Cab King Ranch Diesel 44,000 miles.


Only a teaser pic for now. Not to be mean but because the truck is at the detailers now and, well, I can't take more pics of it for a couple more hours!









Bring on the 6.0L hate!

Its very nice. The truck was my bosses so I've been around it nearly everyday since it rolled off the lot. Its makes me feel much more comfortable about buying the 6.0 because I know exactly what this truck has been through, and I know it wasn't beat on. All the maintanence was done on schedule by the local dealer. The 44000 miles were mostly towing miles as it wasn't his daily driven truck, at least I know some douche didn't hot rod the hell out of it all over town though.

Probably not. Just drive it a couple times a week. I've driven every day since I sold the white truck. No mods though.

very nice Ryan! I dont care about the haters. I hear it all the time too for the 6.4L. Whatever I say.

Nice truck! Cant wait to see the full size pictures. I am sure you will take care of it. btw I cant believe you are going to leave it STOCK!! You should atleast toss an intake and exhaust on it. Love that 6.0 turbo sound.

I know the 6.0 is a bad idea in a lot of people's minds, but I feel good about it since I know the trucks history. And yeah its staying stock, the only thing I really want is a coolant filter.


Anyway! I just picked up the truck so without any further delay......

Is it just me or is that tail pipe hanging low?

Those seats need to be conditioned!

Looks sick though, I'm jealous

Those 6.0's experienced A LOT of egr problems with the owners that believed it was like the ol 7.3's that didn't require you to change the oil at proper intervals. Those that maintained them, got to enjoy a good powerful engine for along time. An exhaust would really be a good idea. Turbos LOVE to breathe. You got the earlier real saddle leather seats. Some of the best leather for trucks out there. The newer seats are just like the regular leather. NOT the original saddle ones.

Also. Some of the people that have problems are the ones that do nothing but short trips with it. Diesels hate that. They like to get out their and stretch their legs. Not. All short intown little trips.

You bought a great truck! Congrats.

Anyone who thinks a diesel is slow. Definitley hasn't driven one lately. Lol

Use that on the seats every few months and they'll stay in great shape. It'll be scary when you first do it because the seat turns black for a couple minutes until it dries, but it'll make them look new again and feel soft. You can use the King Ranch brand hide feed stuff too but I use Lexol since you can pick it up locally, mink oil is also supposed to do wonders but is a big process. Nice truck
