New guy from Central Valley California

Hey guys, my names Chris. Just bought a 02 7.3 f350 with 142 on the odometer. First diesel for me, but I am a mechanic for John Deere so diesel knowledge isnít new for me. Itís in relatively good shape drivetrain wise, needs paint and a driver seat cover. I was quoted $2200 to paint it. Itís got a full turbo back MBRP kit on it. New batteries, water pump, and thermostats, as well has a few steering/suspension components. Itís Dark teal metallic, paint code R2.
I have a company truck so this is going to be primarily a tow rig / weekend driver. Im sure Iíll get some crap for it but Iím pretty sure I want to do the 08 style mirrors for it and when itís painted all the plastics will be done as well. Plans are to tint and level. Truck has no oil anywhere on it nor does it look freshly cleaned.
Already changed headlights, installed dual din, and got a cts2 monitor.

Re: New guy from Central Valley California

I would love a big service truck, but the kind of work we particularly do here in the area I live and work in a big truck physically wouldnít fit a lot of places. We have two ďchopper trucksĒ at one of our other locations. Hereís a pic of one of the trucks, they are basically identical. @heavydoc what company do you work for?
