Well not really new to the site, but im a new member. I grew up a Chevy man, got my first (64 C10) at 16 and still have it today. But over the last 5 years I have owned a few Ford trucks and by God Ford makes a good truck. So after trading off my wifes Eddie Bauer Expedition earlier this year I decided to get us back into a Ford Truck. So within the month of Dec. 2010 I have gotten my wife a 2001 F250 SD V10 4x4 and me a 2001 F350 SD 4x4 PSD. We love the trucks and plan on keeping them for a while. Here are a couple pictures of our rides hope you like. My 350 has been a work truck and has 315K miles on it. Luckily my dad owns a body shop and will be making all the necessary repairs to get it looking good once again.
And she is 5'2" the truck has a 6" rough country lift, 37" MT Baja Claws.

Thanks for the welcome. As for the V10 not sure if it will stay in there. Its got 200K on it now, I am thinking of doing a 12V Cummins swap in it. Ill be looking for a donor truck this spring.
You could always do a 4BT transplant from a step van. Read an article a couple of years ago of where someone "tweaked" one of those little 4-bangers and stuffed it into a '70s Bronco. Think the crazy thing was making 400 hp and would get mid-20 mpg when they were driving it "responsibly". What keeps you from putting one of those in a SD?
