Hello all.

My name is Cory. I'm from Rochester, New York. I like candle light dinners, long walks on the beach…oh wait, wrong forum.

Back on track, first off, thank you for the abundance of information and knowledge throughout the forum; It has been and will be continue to be very helpful in the future.

Secondly, this is the first diesel that I have ever personally purchased. I have been around gas trucks my entire life and have driven a company powerstroke for 6 years. With that being said, the shift away from a company vehicle was determined by this fancy new thing my employer calls an "auto allowance." So I did what any smart man would do and went out and bought me a new truck about three weeks ago. It's nothing fancy, but its everything I need and want; 2016 XLT Regular Cab F350.

I am determined to make this truck exactly what I want it to be as soon as possible. It goes in for tint tomorrow and that’s a touch exciting. I'm also not into big lifts and "fancy" wheel and tire combos so that certainly wont happen. I will eventually level it out some, simply because the rake on the 350 regular cabs are woof. Asthetically it will be very simple. I want a work horse, I don’t need it to look pretty.

Oh right, about it being a work horse, I already bought some other stuff too. An S&B intake, SCT tuner, 4 inch stainless MBRP and a few other things that we all know will help these trucks last a lifetime to be more precise. By the end of next week, it should have some bigger marbles, that’s the hope at least.

Again, thank you for allowing me to lurk for the past few months and thank you for putting in your blood, sweat and tears for new owners like myself to be able to learn from your hard work. It truly is greatly appreciated.

Welcome to psn. Sounds like you will fit right in.

Let me make one suggestion. Buy good quality fuel from places that have lots of traffic. If you end up with water in your fuel you could end up with a $10k repair bill not covered by your warranty. 5¢-10¢ per gallon cheaper fuel might cost a whole lot more in the end.
Or you can add this for piece of mind. Yeah it's kinda spendy but compared to a whole new fuel system it's not. www.dieselsite.com/dieselsite2011-20012ford67lfuelfilterwaterseparator.aspx

and if the information center tells you to drain the fuel filter, STOP AND DRAIN IT!!!. do not drive for a week before draining it because it was raining or you did not have the time.
