    The 7.3's come de-tunned from the factory. The stock motor and bottom end can handle 500hp safley. Also it changes your shift points keeping your boost up when towing. I have noticed 2 mpg towing and 3-5 mpg's empty. But if you go around dogging it and wanting to race everyone then yes it will but a lot more whear and tear on it.

    7.3's are the best. Haven't had one problem.

    Wanna sell me that ext cab long box? :laugh: Normally I HATE ext cab long boxes (either go short box or crew long) but you make it look good. What engine is in the flatbed? And one thing I'd say you should do is paint your leafbox on the dump trailer black as well as the sides on the Se.Tre (redneck for 7.3 :laugh:)

    The flatbed has a 5.4 gasser. We were going to repaint the box black but I dont plan on keeping that much longer. We just just sold the chipper. It sat more than we used it. I figured the money could be better spent on something like a dump truck that we could use every day.

    Possibly looking to put a utility body on my F250 diesel pick-up. Any opinions?
