New To Fords

First, I'd like to say thanks for having me. I have never owned (and still don't, I'm a GM guy) a Ford of any kind. I stand to "inherit" my Father In Law's one owner 1997 Ford F250 HD CCSB 4x4 at some point so I have started lurking around this site to get the skinny on what upgrades are worth the squeeze and where to source parts, reliable vendors, etc. I've already read a decent amount on here though I'm not sure I know what most of it means. I've never owned a diesel myself but have used many of them for work. I'm just here to learn and ask questions and i needed to make an account in order to see some of the pictures that are posted here. Anyways, thanks again for having me and I appreciate any help or advice that I receive here. See y'all around!

Thanks! I'm not sure what you mean by the model bug but I'm sure I found a way to mess something up so no hard feelings on my part

Thanks! I'm sure I'll enjoy it. I'm in Arkansas so at least if there's anything that is way over my head I can reach out to BTS. I spoke with a woman there today and she was extremely pleasant and helpful. I'm a big believer in first impressions so they've got my business when the time comes. Plus, I always buy local if I can.

Re: New To Fords

Mod Bug:

Loose term among truck owners,

Meaning the obsessive and contagious need to "modify" ones truck,

Be it for more horsepower, fuel economy, weight handling capabilities, dependability, impressing the opposite sex, having something different, having something like someone else's, making it your own, looks, coolness, general bada$$ness, or sometimes, just for something to do.

No judgement here, I think we all have it to some degree.

BTS is a great place, the woman working the phones is extremely knowledgeable and very nice, and I guess Brian aint that bad either haha.

Oh, wow. Sorry, I thought you were referring to forum mods. Yes, that's definitely me, though, I always try to do mods that I consider tasteful and practical. My daily driver 2017 Silverado looks absolutely bone stock from the outside and it pretty much is. I've added under seat storage, exhaust tip, cold air intake tube (not full kit), LED bed lights, tonneau cover, tie down rings, black bowties and full aluminum skid plates that I sanded, primed and bedlined black. Nothing too crazy at all. I intend to do the same with the Ford once I get it. I'm mainly just looking to improve on a few things that Ford overlooked such as insulation and sound deadening, intercooler, spring and shackle kit, slightly larger injectors and turbo. I just want a clean truck to drive around and have Ford guys drooling on the weekends . I doubt many women even notice what type of truck a man drives unless they are trying to gauge his income levels and those types are usually more into the guy driving a Range Rover or similar.

I just want the slickest CCSB in my town but I'm sure it will take me a while to get there.
