    Like the title says new to me 05 f250 6.0 psd ccsb 133000 miles on the clock. Id like to thank the Hurricane Irene stimulus for allowing me the funds to buy this truck.Thumbs Up Plans are to put my wide out and tornado on this truck and run it till the wheels fall off witch i hope is a long time from now. Parts already on order are hids, sct livewire and debating airbags to help hold the loaded salter with the perks of train horns because id already have the compressor :nod: headlight,taillight strobes in 08 taillights, SoundOff 1400 Lumen back up lights and a full detail are all on my list of things to do. ill post pics as she comes along

    Sharp looking truck. Those are some of my favorite body style Fords and that coil spring front end is alot better then the old leaf spring ones.

    To go with your SCT I'd recommend custom tunes, alot of guys like Eric at Innovative diesel. If you fine Ultimate Plow on here he might give you some other ideas, he's pretty into the 6.0 trucks I think.

    I'd look into coolant filters, egr delete, and exhaust also. Depending on your driving style headstuds and head gaskets may be a good idea also. The 6.0's are pretty cool trucks, just in factory form they need some refinement.

    thank you sir complement as for the body style its also my fav besides my 2011. As for the 6.0 this is not my first one [​IMG] thats my old 05 that was the twin to this blue truck my friends dads got the this blue truck same time i got the white on only difference was outside color. i strongly regret selling the white truck that now has 175000 on it so when this one went for sale i jumped on it. Eric at Innovative diesel is who tuned my white one and who i ordered the tunner for this truck from also so again good advice, as far as egr goes i did not list that as parts to order because i already picked it up just need to install. im taking the muffler out and prey that the hg hold till after winter as that when i plan to do studs.

    Sounds like you've got this under control and know what your dealing with. I wasn't sure if you knew anything about the 6.0's or were a new guy to them and were going to be totally surprised and disappointed when things possibly started going wrong with it that could easily have been prevented.

    I've had a couple different 6.0's either break down on me or have something go wrong but remain mostly drivable to get me home or somewhere safe on several occasions. They were all work trucks at places I have worked in the past. I'm not going to run out and buy one, but I appreciate a properly altered and well cared for one that's made to be reliable. They have a pretty unique sound to them once modded with a straight pipe, definitely gets your attention when their rapped out.

    I'm a glass half full type, no sense bashing someone on a purchase they made. Especially if they know the in's and outs of them and have the intention to make it better then it was from the factory.

    Well said Mark.

    That is a good looking truck. I'm sure your end product will be exactally what you want. Although I'm not sure there is ever an end.....never has been with my truck. Always want more.
