Full size mod!

bought a 1997 f250 4x4 7.3 stroker with 178000 miles. Beauty of a truck, perfect running condition only flaw is a little rust above the wheel wells.

Nice truck. Gotta love the 7.3.

A "little" rust on the fenders can turn into a big problem fast, if it isn't addressed. Have you torn up the carpet and checked for other rust? How about on the bottom of the tailgate? Rust spreads fast on these years F-series and Broncos.

Get a chip from a custom tuner, exhaust and intake and wake that baby up!

Great looking truck though . . . wish mine was an OBS.

Personally... i would rather be cumming than stroking.
But a stroker is plenty of power anyways.

7.3 is as good as any cummins out there. It never had any of the problems the 6.0+'s had.

cummings is something you do when you get overly excited.

Looks good, You could probably get some good money off those steps since they appear to be the factory ones. I've never seen that color combo, looks great. Wanna buy some 5" stacks?
