Welcome! Looks like another Super Duty! Also looks like it is a 5.4? I've heard pretty good things about those little V8's.

Yip, I'd agree on the V8. The V10 guys are trouble makers. Worse than the 7.3L guys...no respect for the 6.0

Nothing wrong with an IDI, I own 2 of them, wouldn't be caught dead in a PSD

I love the 6.0 as well, just not as much as my 7.3 I had a 6.4 too, both the 6.0 and 6.4 are wicked fast stock for stock. 7.3 s just fun to drive IMO. I'm actually shopping for a 6.9 or 7.3 IDI to experiment a little with, cheap as far as parts go, and I think I could make some fun power.

To some what quote a Confederate Railroad song (Daddy wasn't the Cadillac Kind) we can arrange for a PSD to take you to your final resting place...or as close as a regular hurst could. Hell, I'll even polish the chrome & wax the Pavement Princess if you'd like.

My first "car" was a '90 Ranger. Had the 2.3L "8 plug" under the hood with a 5-speed behind it. Powerhouse it might not have been...but for $20 you could fill the tank and run dang near 400 miles before you had to refill the tank. Though the more I think back, gas was still 85-90 cents a gallon when I was in high school.

The parts might be cheap but the fuel sure ain't I'm still waiting for someone to "re-program" a 6.7L once a couple of things have fallen off the rig. I've heard from a couple of folks that the 6.4L minus all the EPA crap is a stump pulling monster.

There were 2 6.4's at RRE in Tennessee that I was very impressed with, both running tunes, laid down 550ish HP with High 900's Ft/lbs. Adam one of the guys pulling his camper averaged 18mpg IIRC.

It's a DEAL! Do you want a 7.3 or 6.0 to do the honors? Does it need to be a 4WD to get "back to the final internment"? I've got a short box, but I've got plenty of those Harbor Freight ratchet straps for those items longer than the box.

Sweet, but I still won't buy one; still loving the trailer towing powerhouse I've got. Don't get me wrong, I didn't say I'd never drive one...just not looking to replace the Princess anytime in the near future.

I guess we all have to start our monthly off topic threads by welcoming someone to the chapter. It appears to be the only way to get away from the spammers.

Aw, crap...did I say that out loud?
