Yeah, I wouldnt bother drag racing,,.. I bet its slow. Being a standard doesnt help it either... not to mention the engine. Heck, even the 7.3L Powerstrokes aren't fast in comparison to the other diesel pickups... (6.0L, 6.4L, the Duramax, SOME of the Cummins's, etc).

That is real sharp. He's done a great job on keeping it looking good over the years. I wouldn't do a thing to it.

Oh definately. I would drive the **** out of it if I had a diesel truck. I got better fuel mileage in the diesel I borrowed from a friend towing a ranger then I did in my ranger. How f'ed up is that?
