Man you can pull alot of trailer with that bad boy.

I have owned 2 diesel ford pickups, here is pic of current 2005
I assume you are aware of the issues that the 6.0 PSD has had in the U.S
Have done most of the mods to my 6.0 motor and she runs great now.

Yep aware of bypass etc but not sure if its been done on this one, still trying to find someone to insure it at a sensible rate, be interested in having a talk about these old girls, I want to put a 2din music centre in it but still retain the steering wheel functions and I need to get the giant mickey Thomson tyres off it, road noise is bad

Lots of info available on the 6.0 PSD.
If interested try searching, 6.0 PSD common issues. Lots of powerstoke diesel forums also.
6.0 can be a good motor but I would at least look into some of the mods.

Would be interested in learning what ones to prolong her life, if you can find the time to go through a few drop me a email at. Info@customrib.com, would be nice to find a reliable line for spares as well, these motors are quite rare over here and spares are just as rare, I may be able to return the favour with boat bits and knowledge etc
