    I have a '96 S10 xtended cab 4.3l that I use in my home improvement and as a daily driver. Well....It grew up!

    Last night I picked up a '93 F350 XLT Crew Dually Deisel 4X2. 107K miles and clean!

    Wish me luck, I always wanted one, so we will see if it lives up to my expectations! I will post pics later.

    Got my first Diesel 4 months ago lots of power and almost twice the mileage of my gasser. Now just log on to a diesel web site to learn how to repair & maintain your new ride.

    The diesel stop - already a member! I bought the Haynes book Sunday.

    BTW- Do you know what the "Fuel reset warning light" is for?

    Don't have a clue, but ask the guys over at dieselstop, they'll know what it is. I have already installed a flip chip/tymar intake/down pipe/& lost the kitty, boy will she run now.

    Nice looking truck! Get some chrome or stainless wheel simulators for it and it will look twice as good!

    Nice! I really hope I can find a diesel that clean this year! I am in the market for one, but I need to save up for a while because I am going the cash route! Enjoy your new "beast!"

    My first truck way back was a GMC S-15. That truck went over 400,000 miles and made me well over $1,500,000 in its lifetime.

    Sod, I can't say my S10 made me anything close to that, but all in all, I had no complaints about her.

    I want the sims for the wheels. Inspection is up in June and she needs 6 tires. Priorities! She is being hard to start when cold, so Sunday i will test the glow plugs. Since I do not know what is in there, I plan to replace all 8 w/ Motorcrafts and keep any used Motorcrafts for spares and toss the rest.

    Here is a pic with the trailer. Both need to be lettered also.
