Upgraded to a Super Duty

As the title suggests,I traded in the F-150 and bought a low mileage 2008 F-350 Super Duty XLT Super Cab 4x4. Only 29,000 miles on it and it was loaded(AM/FM/6-disc CD changer/MP3,power windows,locks,mirrors,dual power seats). it was originally on sale at AutoTrader and Cars.com for $30,555 but the dealer sold it to me for $28,000 since I drove over 350 miles to see and test drive the truck(it was located in Pulaski,New York,20 min north of Syracuse). The real fun part is the powertrain combo:6.4liter Power Stroke diesel engine hooked up to the ZF-650 6-speed manual transmission. I'll get some pics up soon,right now it's raining and almost midnight here!

Out of curiosity, what Job is the truck? Job 3 trucks began on Jan. 3, 2008. If you have a Job 1 or 2 truck, then you're more likely to run into issues.

Be sure to change your oil on a regular basis since it is susceptible to fuel dilution due to the "regen" process. Also keep an eye on your coolant level to make sure it's not leaking into your oil.

If possible, DFPE and cat delete with tune. Fuel economy will greatly increase as well as solve the sluggish off the line issues.

As stated above, keep an eye on oil and coolant.
Change your fuel filters (both of them) religiously.

Pray your oil pump that maintains injectors doesn't go out, or if it does, goes out before powertrain warranty expiration.

We have 2 6.4's at work and both have had the cabs off multiple times in under 100k.
