    I found this truck on eBay. I bought it sight unseen and when it arrived it was very clear it was someones baby. I dont even think it was in 4wd before I bought it. It came from Costa Mesa CA. It is the cleanest 2002 I have seen. It is almost a shame to put it though PA winters, but its a truck and I have never bought a truck for show....

    When I got it
    2002 F250 Crew 7.3 PSD 84,000 miles with rear air bags, leveling kit, 305 tires, superchip (towing), K&N, and 4" stainless exhaust.

    Now I have added a full headache rack w/ 4x6 halogen work lights, a soundoff pinacle, extra LED reverse lights and a 8.5' MVP Unimount.

    I mounted the LED lights to the hitch crossbar. I drilled and tapped the holes 5/16-18 and used them as a ground also then I tapped into my reverse light wire for the trailer lights. Total cost was about $150. It made a huge difference.

    Fluid Film

    I sprayed the underside and frame with Amsoil HDMP. I am guesing it is about the same. It does not smell the best but it really protects. I use it on everything.

    headache rack

    It was built by a local fabricator for an 8' bed. I bought it cut it down, added the square tube that protects the back window and 6 d-rings for tie downs. The fab shops wanted $1000 plus for a very similar new one. I have around $350 into it including the work lights.

    These trucks seem hold their value. I paid 21k for it which was high retail and it was exactly what I was looking for except it does not have cab marker lights....They should not make trucks without them:mad:...lol.

    I looked at one locally and the guy wanted 18,900 for it....It looked great on the outside but was extremely rusty underneath. :eek:

    This truck is cleaner right now than some 2009's around here. I put around 6-8,000 miles per year on a truck. If I dont abuse it too bad it should hold a decent resale because in 5 years these trucks will be really hard to find.
