    6.7 PSD engine/trans mods?

    RacingHCR - I do my own fuel filter & fuel/water separator changes right in the drive way. It might take 20 minutes total, Ford has really done us justice in how this system is serviced. Watch the video here, just make sure to release the fuel filter canister the 3...

    Which Tires?

    I almost wish I hadn't jumped in on this discussion, cause wouldn't you know that I had to put new sneakers on the Big White Beast today. The low tire indicator came on and when I found the nail it was in the sidewall of the passenger rear. Mrs. Gunner isn't one for having things mismatched so...

    Which Tires?

    JRJ. how'd you do on your purchase? I drove my $60,760 truck off the lot for $41,700. The dealer knocked $13,000 off the sticker price because of a rival dealer having a crazy sale and then gave me $9,800 more for my truck than what I owed on it.

    whistling truck at highway speeds.

    I know this is an old thread that hasn't been replied to in a while. There are 3 separate issues that can aid in the buzzing sound around the doors: 1st - The body seal at the edge of the door has a secondary seal that lays on top of it. People have sealed the 2 together to aid in limiting or...

    6.7 PSD engine/trans mods?

    My only mods to date have been to fill the fuel tank, drain, repeat.....over and over again. Well, I do have to do oil changes, def-fills and fuel filter & oil-water separator changes as well.

    New Truck???

    I'm of the mindset that whatever you drive should be what you want. I've owned them all and had the ole' turd now and again. I do love this 6.7L though, she is a brute and so nice at the same time. Be careful, drive well.

    JRJ, did you stay with the 275/65R20s or go with a different size?

    I think I need to start saving so I can buy a Ravelco myself. Looks like a great anti-theft device, couple that with the Jimmie Jammers and your truck should be pretty well protected.

    Thanks Dave, that picture is "Old Truck - New Truck". My dealer thought it was cool and she asked me to shoot it to her so she could show her clients. Gunner

    You can count me in as well. I love the forums and hope that this one takes off like a shot. I've been here before and hope that this resurrection brings in new ideas, projects and builds. Sharing of information (aka bragging) is always fun too. Ron "Gunner" Retzlaff

    New skin design that involves the members.

    The signature pic is my "Old Truck - New Truck" picture of my 2007 F-150 King Ranch 4x4 and my new 2011 F-250 King Ranch 4x4 with the legendary 6.7L diesel. The other pictures are of the "Big White Beast" with my darling bride of 31 years in the bed and then with the Westin Ultimate Bull Bar...

    Check Coolant Additive Message

    I've had mine come on twice and took it to my dealer both times. The first time the service tech did the test strip and reset the light. This last time, the service tech checked the coolant reservoir and said to top it off and reset the light which I did.

    Parts are on the way

    OK, update time Sad update!!! Westin has gone to buying their bull bars from a Chinese manufacturer and the bull bar that I ordered on 6-29 still isn't here. I have called every 2 weeks since the middle of July when we were supposed to get it. I called them again today when Summit told me it...

    That is one SICK truck, absolutely beautiful! Yeah, I know how it goes. When I bought the F-150 I had 5 ford dealers on the phone offering them $37,500 out the door for it when it had a sticker price of $43,700. 3 of them told me that it couldn't be done, Sames Crow (then Crosstown Ford) came...

    Parts are on the way

    The wife called me at work yesterday to inform me that she had ordered me a Westin Ultimate Bull Bar in chromed stainless steel, PIAA 540 series driving lights and in-channel vent visors. Gotta get it looking like my last truck. 30 years of marriage and she is still hooking me up. Yay me!

    Rollup Tonneau Cover

    Pace Edwards I had the Pace Edwards on one of my trucks and really enjoyed it. I gave up the roll top covers for my toolbox when I realized that I needed the tool access more than the covered bed. If you are looking for security and coverage the roll top will be right up your alley. Go get one!
