    I’m back with another truck...or two. I traded a very clean ‘99 F250 reg cab 7.3 with 200k miles and $2500 for this ‘01 F350 7.3 AT, crew cab LB, 145k miles. It had injector and turbo problems when I got it and I drove it 800 miles to Mesa AZ from Sacramento CA. Turbo went out while driving around to get repair quotes.

    First mechanic , Monster diesel in Gilbert AZ made a simple diagnosis- Long block replacement $10,500.

    Second try was more reasonable. Wes’s Diesel Repair in East Mesa AZ quoted $3200 for turbo and injectors. Good man! Phew, quite a relief...

    So, now I plan to attempt to do the turbo change out myself buying a rebuilt one. I will leave the injectors to the mechanic.

    Not a scratch or ding A113D395-2F5C-4D18-BB65-03F132F4F9C2.jpeg on either bumper!

    I would like to just refresh and restore this truck as it’s pretty clean. Any ideas and recommendations to help achieve this would be greatly appreciated ❤️
