Truck looks awesome.

Interior looks great, I personally wouldn't get that color, but that comes with the package. To each his own

My first mod would be straight pipe

Plus I don't know much about the 6.0's or anything newer for that matter. All I know is, my dad likes his 7.3 enough that he won't trade. Which is ok because he's giving it to me once I finish his 76 Chevy

Good looking rig man! I was tempted to get a later model 6.0L CCSB in the Outlaw or Harley edition, but with the cost of the truck and mods I would eventually have it would have been too much for someone my age.

Have fun with it!

PS - I thought I was going to leave mine stock for a while too . . . that won't last long. If I'm not mistaken zabeard said that too I thought.

Those seats need to be conditioned!

Looks sick though, I'm jealous
Yup I've been wondering about the tailpipe myself, don't see anything wrong with it though.
And yes the seats do need conditioned. Like most King Ranch owners he ignored them.

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
Thanks dude, the truck is much more fun to drive than my f150 was, lovin it so far.

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
Yup been reading about the lexol and planned on trying it out soon.

I love the color! No straight pipe in the future though.

Yeah we'll give her time but don't hold your breath lol, it was tough enough convincing her I needed a bigger truck! And the leather is nice, this is the first vehicle I've had with leather.


The truck was 25k but you have to remember I didn't buy it from a dealer. My boss is buying a 2011 F250 and the dealer was going to give him 25k trade in so he decided he'd rather sell it to me for that then trade it. At the dealers around here I have no doubt they would've put at least 33k on this truck.

yeah 25k is a great price, but since the 6.7s came out almost all the powerstrokes have plummeted in price IMO. great for people to buy but not great to sell. my 6.4L lost a ton of value once the 6.7s came out.

I really like that truck though, ive always liked the 05-07 body style so much, i just never cared for the interior which is why i wanted an 08+ truck.

Maybe it's just here, but the 7.3's don't stay for sale very long. Everyone is buying them up.

I do see a lot of new ones though

Hell here there isn't really ANY super dutys for sale. Unless you want a new one you're in for some searching and waiting. Out of all the dealerships in town there's probably only 5 used SD's for sale. And 7.3s for sale are flat out non-existent.

thats a killer price for that truck. but its so weird seeing a king ranch thats not two tone... honestly the first one ive ever seen. i was certian they were all two tone from the factory. unless your boss painted that one? the 6.0 is a strong motor once all of the pesky problems are taken care of. but man that truck is gorgeous.. after i saw your teaser i didnt wanna open this tread again. my dad had a 2003 250 king ranch and sold it. man i miss that truck. but congrats man. its a bueaty.

The truck was originally two tone. He had the dealer remove it when it was new.

Ford trucks are a luxury around here I guess. Even used f150s and rangers are few and far between.

You've probably seen the color before, just not without the king ranch two tone. It looks much better as a solid IMO.

I would keep towing with it occasionally. The ones that tow seem to be the ones that last the longest. Never heating it up makes a mess out of the intake with the EGR, avoid idling time and it should hold up a little better. I've pulled a few EGR valves out that are so carboned up it's ridiculous. I vote at least an EGR delete.

Yes I plan to tow the Ranger with it lol. I'm considering the EGR delete, seems it causes the bulk of the problems on the 6.0. It will take some convincing though lol.
