Been a Ford truck owner for a while. Ranger 4L LB, F250 SC LD, F250 Crew SB 2V V10, F250 Crew SB 6L and currently another F250 Crew SB 6L since the previous one was stolen in GA last month. Mainly a motorcycle guy (11 bikes) and my wife and daughter have horses so my truck is a summer tow vehicle.
While my previous 6L was a well maintained stone stock local truck, the one I bought earlier this month off Ebay from MS unfortunately turned out to be in need of significant attention (oil cooler, turbo, radiator, egr cooler, hpop ....). Fortunately it didn't blow up on the drive from MS (35F EOT/EWT delta!) and the problems were nothing that 2 weeks and a stack of cash couldn't solve thanks to Dave and Mike at DT's Garage. Gotta say, I really feel fortunate to have a shop like DT's around. Without this level of reasonably priced diligent experience around, my poor Ebay buy would probably have ended up being a long drawn out tortuous series of expensive problems and on the road failures.
