F-250 Diesel-Powered Beast is Ready to Tackle Any Terrain
Built F-250 Super Duty appears to be in amazing shape for a 19-year-old mud monster.
While some Ford F-250 Super Duty owners buy a truck with plans to modify it, some people don’t have the mechanical ability or a trusted shop that can thoroughly build a heavy duty truck. Those people generally kook to buy trucks that are already built, but the problem with buying a used, built off-road truck is that in being used appropriately, they often get very beat up. This means that those prospective buyers who want a built truck still have to do some work if they also want a nice looking truck.
Fortunately, it is possible to find an older Super Duty that has been built for off-roading fun in nice shape, and the posting by “hunter101” in the FTE Marketplace is proof that clean, built F-250 pickups are out there.
When the OP first posted his 2000 Ford F-250 to the forum, he included the three pictures shown here, a lengthy modification list and the basic information below.
Up for sale is my wonderful 2000 F250 4×4 Extended Cab XLT with a 7.3L Diesel with many extras that I’ve added on this vehicle. It only has 172,000 miles on original motor and the transmission is built to hold. I have owned this truck since 2002 and love it. The interior is in great condition. I am ready to sell it to the rightful owner that is ready for one extremely tough truck (bought a 6.7 recently). I am asking $17,000.00 but will negotiate any deal if it fits. Please only serious inquiries only. Listed below are items I have put into this awesome truck for the last 17 years. I may have missed a few also. Enjoy!!!
The most obvious upgrades made to this 2000 Super Duty is the 12.5-inch Fabtech suspension package with all of the necessary items to ride and drive like it was stock height. This big lift makes room for the 42.5-inch Pitbull tires which are driven by 4.88 gears. This truck also has Ranchhand front and rear bumpers, a bed rack, a 12,000-pound winch, heated power mirrors from a 2008 model and headlights from a 2005 model.
The heart of this F-250 is a built 7.3-liter PowerStroke turbo diesel V8 that has been upgraded with the following items:
-DP Tuner w/6 position on the fly including 140Hp extreme
-Aftermarket Intercooler and Engine Boot kit/clamps
-6637 Air Filter add-on and cover
-MBRP XP Series 4″ exhaust
-High Pressure Oil crossover Line
-Black billet thermostat housing
-203 degree thermostat
-Air intake heater plug
-EBPF Delete and pedestal for turbo
-Exhaust backpressure valve terminator
-Air intake heater plug code P0541 eliminator
-Exhaust backpressure sensor eliminator
-Pyrometer gauge 0-1600 degrees
-Boost gauge 0-60 psi
-Triple pillar gauge w/paint to match
The transmission has also been built to stand up to the abuse handed out by the powerful diesel engine, including the following components:
-ITP deep pan
-Tru Cool 4734 Max w/o thermal bypass valve
-Tranny temp guage
-External trans filter added as well as internal
-Chromoly Forward drum
-Cryogenically frozen input shaft
-Precision industries triple disk torque converter.
-BTS valve body
-Many extras to include on transmission that I can’t think of off hand.
Again, this truck is listed for $17,000, but he is willing to negotiate on the pricing. In any case, the truck is incredible shape, it has a built drivetrain and all of the key suspension upgrades have been made to make room for the huge tires. This is a turnkey mud monster, ready and waiting for a new home.
