Got it Friday. yeah I would much rather have a newer truck. but my price range for "new" trucks only included the 6.0, I didnt wanna **** with that **** so I went down a notch for a little more stability.

Well I'm back home, and like nick said it will be close to ready to wheel when i get back down there. But I dont plan to wheel it until may? I might go for a test when i get it home. but no dates for that and i dont have much vacation until March.

That's what I like about 7.3s. The reliability is right up there with Cummins diesels. Can't beat um.

Yeah, 10+ year old motors tend to be, but so are Rangers so it kinda works out. But diesels in general don't make very good DDs honestly. You said it yourself before in the SD's build thread, gasers are a better choice unless you are hauling all the time. I have to say though your body style is my favorite SD style yet. The new ones look like Tundras lol.

I am sure Nick will keep the thread updated. Or he will send the pictures to me and I will. Its not a simple fire it over and debug, still a decent amount of work yet.
