    Finally traded in my old 1/2 ton dodge for a 1997 Ford f-250 7.3 powerstroke. Its in really great condition as well. Its going to be great to rent a skidsteer without having to pay a delivery fee and pull alot more mulch in my trailer, ect... Ill get picks up within a couple of days:)

    Can't wait for picks. Good find the old 7.3 is the best diesel ford offered.

    Ya picks would be great. You should love it. I drove my 99 without the programmer on it for the first time since I bought it last fall on saturday though and talk about a turd, turbo lag like a fool. I'd check into some kind of a programmer and a set of gauges to really get what the 'stroke has to offer out of it.
