Long time lurker 5th time poster. I realized I made a few posting without introducing myself. My name is Jason. I'm from just north of Indianapolis, Indiana, in a smaller town called Whitestown. I'm currently a marine mechanic. I worked for a Ford dealer in Indianapolis for about 5 years until we got shut down and also when I joined the Indiana National Guard. I was on Active Duty for 2 years as a all wheeled vehicle mechanic and still wrench once a month for my Guard Unit.
This 2000 F350 cc dually is my first Powerstroke. Ive had a few IDIs and loved them but when I came across this truck I fell in love and at the time I had my first child on the way and ready to pop so I needed ( I felt, the Wife did NOT ) a bigger vehicle. Call me crazy but I traded straight up a 2012 Ford Focus base model 5 speed with 35k on the clock for my F350. It ran well when I checked it out and started great in cold weather, plus in my eyes it was gorgeous lol. The Wife was furious and wanted me to trade back. It had 300k on it when I took over ownership. I have 315k on it currently and love owning a powerstroke.
Anyways sorry this is so long winded for an intro but I just wanted to properly introduce myself. I look forward to learning what I can here and hopefully can share some of my knowledge with others as well.
