I have been looking for a cherry 7.3 or 6.0 for two years. I checked CL and FB every few days but never found what I was looking for.Found one worthy (low miles, not a farm truck, manual, STOCK) and took it off the previous owner's hands.

It had 51.7k miles. I love the 18's, such a good looking wheel. It needed an alignment and all the basic maintenance which I have since done. Oil (back to OEM filter and cap), fuel filters, air filter, IPR coolant filter (flushed it, too - a bit rusty but no chunkies). I have a blue spring kit to install, EGR seals, and a new T-stat ready to go in.

I got a scangauge and it shows nice temps. It throws the underboost code but drives amazing. I have noticed the vanes sticking a couple times in the 500 miles since ownership. Archoil is on the way.

I worked at a Ford dealership when I was 17-20 back in 02-05. I drove these trucks all the time and always loved the manuals. I love the way they shift, like a Model 70 Winchester bolt. Just feels damn good.
