New member, Currently in afghanistan would love some help when I return if anyone has free time

Just wanted to swing in and introduce myself. I am currently deployed to Afghanistan for what is hopefully my last tour overseas. Recently bought a 02 F250 PSD and will finally get to drive it when I return home on R&R Leave in June. This is my first diesel and I went with the 7.3L due to its track record. the truck has just under 200k on the ticker and I want to address any issues with her before I make the drive to So California with my fiance when I return. Would anyone be able to lend me a hand checking things over with me. I just want to make sure I address any issues the truck may have before driving down for a week.

Thanks again
SGT Ryan Libby

I would be more than happy to chat with you on what you may want to look for,,, good and bad!!

Hey Bear Killer thanks for your service and all that you do. If you come back to Ft. Lewis you can find me at the pharmacy at the hospital. I can't help much with the diesel part but anything else on the truck I can.
