New to the powertroke life.

Just bought 95 f 250 7.3L With 175000. Runs great. What should I do immediately to help the life span last.

Welcome Aboard.

Gents way smarter than me will chime in.

But I always change all fluids and filters so I have a baseline.

Is that a barrel behind the cab? lol

Re: New to the powertroke life.

Hello and welcome to the Nation. @HilhavenFarm gives good advice. Grease everything that has a fitting and if 4X4, grease the hubs as well. Check for leaks and address those as needed. Some leaks won't be enough worry with but there are some that are common and easily repaired. Check the brakes, power steering pump & lines, front-end suspension, and steering components. The fuel tank has some known issues that you may need to address and get them out of the way. While you're in there, a couple modifications are popular and you may consider those as well. Don't be shy just jump on in and ask questions. I don't know your level of familiarity with the 7.3 or diesels in general but we all started from somewhere so welcome aboard.

Went through Yadkin River Valley this weekend up near Wilkesboro. Beautiful scenery - God's country up there.
