Hopefully this is in the correct place. If not, please let me know where I should post this. From MN and currently in Texas. Just acquired a 03 F250 XL 4x4 with 5.4l Gas engine from auction down here and currently in the process of getting all the work done to it in Dallas. Once everything is finished, the truck will spend the rest of its life in Minnesota plowing snow and pulling trailers. Miles were low, price was right and obviously very little rust. Current work being done (slowly but surely): Fix minor body damage and repaint Potentially/likely removing bed to "rustproof" frame and underside of bed Preparing bed for respray of liner with plans to use have LineX sprayed but am open to using either Raptor liner by U-POL or Dominator depending on feedback from others here. Box has sprayed liner, but whoever did it did a poor job on preparing the box prior to spraying because where it is chipping, you can see newish looking paint with zero scuff marks. Installing rear windshield defroster kit from Frost Fighter Having minor mechanical and suspension repairs done at local shop here in Dallas Installing basic/original headache rack from BackRack (15001) along with a Tonneau cover Adding backup camera -- thinking of buying a newer tailgate with backup camera since little modifications are needed to make a tailgate from 08-15 work on a 99-07 superduty. Adding double din aftermarket radio for backup camera Replacing battery with a bigger one Will be replacing the alternator if it is less than 100 amps (haven't checked it yet). Looking for info on the following I am planning to install onto the truck: Need an affordable main flashing light bar (please don't hit me flashing light) that is reliable, will remain permanently mounted to BackRack and hopefully last 5+ years instead of 1-2 seasons. Thinking about Frost Fighter for windshield near wiper blade area, thoughts? We have tried all sorts of wiper blades and washer fluid and still end up with a build up of snow/ice on very cold days at bottom of windshield regardless of defroster setting. Not really interested in heated wipers Aftermarket and heated Towing mirrors: Reviews seem to be mixed on the few I have looked at. Don't need/care about having power mirrors as the truck is only XL model so power mirrors means even more annoying wiring work to do. Do I need to worry about replacing the oil cooler seal or any other critical seals on this truck to avoid damage/failures before it experiences Minnesota cold weather for the first time in its life? I have had seals on southern vehicles fail on their first time experiencing Minnesota's extreme cold temperatures which have caused a great deal of damage. Once, I had to replace the engine head due to lost oil from a failed oil cooler seal, hence the ask... Thank you all in advance.
