    Nice upgrade. Very good looking truck. Love the white trucks. And that white grill and mirrors just set it off.

    that chevy will still be plowing and your ford will be in the shop in the middle of a snow storm...

    sorry, i had to. nice truck! Im interested to see these fords in a few more years, how the new diesels hold up over time. fords are a great looking truck inside and out. the engines just always have gremlins.

    Tuning and removal of some emissions equip and you'll love that 6.4 even more!

    I agree with above. Have heard these trucks are crazy with a DPF delete and tuning.

    it has a cold air intake, egr delete, dpf delete, and a h&s xrt tuner.

    what i did is a must it cost about $1500 in parts to do the mods. i did the work myself. and it unleashed the beast. the power and responsiveness change was rediculous. and the fuel mileage increase is awesome. for 1500 my fuel milesage went up by 10 mpg.

    it gets about 20 avg. but i can do 25mpg on the highway.

    Nice upgrades, do you have emission or inspection testing? Any check engine lights with the updates?

    we do have emissions testing. it just passed as it was. the big thing is keeping the truck so it does not look modified. most techs wont even look under the truck. and if it did fail i still have the DPF it takes about 20 minutes to swap. and no check engine light with the tuner becasue the tuner allows you to turn off the the DPF sensors and regen.


    the old one was nice just getting tired it was still in good shape just getting tired. yours looks very nice though.
